Instructor: Lorena Mesa
You can often find Lorena, a Sprout Social Platform Engineer, in dingy arcade halls playing the classics (e.g. Mario, Mortal Kombat, X-Men). A frequent Girl Develop It teaching assistant and instructor as well as a Dev Bootcamp guide, Lorena is a fervent believer in diversifying tech through the education and expansion of roles for women in tech. Want to talk code, hack on a project, engage in Mortal Kombat, or nerd over general geek chic? Tweet Lorena @loooorenanicole, she would love to hear from you!
