INSTRUCTOR: Tinuola "Tinu" Awopetu

Tinuola “Tinu" Awopetu is a UI-UX Developer with many incarnations in Tech: Content Producer-Writer, Marketing Manager, Community Evangelist, Blogger, Podcaster, and Women’s Leadership Advocate. She “stumbled” into a coding bootcamp one day and discovered a new creative sweet spot. Learning about and working with front-end technology excites her constantly. By teaching and sharing her experiences, she hopes to encourage and support other Women and BIPOC to claim their place in Tech. When not coding (or troubleshooting CSS), she’s on a yoga mat, or catching up on her favorite streaming shows, or reading fiction.

No shows: Your course fee will be donated to the GDI scholarship fund.
