"The idea that these are skills that are needed, and there's a different delivery mechanism for those skills." — Elaine Queathem 


About Elaine Queathem: I’ve been involved with technology my entire life, but when I worked for a small software technology company in 2009, I became acutely aware of the shortage of qualified programming resources which were essential for a small company to grow and thrive. Now, several years later, I am in a position to begin to help people develop those important and sought-after skills. That’s why I founded Savvy Coders.
