Alice Armstrong

Alongside being a full-stack developer, I’ve been organising talks on diversity and mental health, and working with schools to encourage girls into tech.

I retrained three years ago through Makers (formally Makers Academy) to become a software developer, and have been working as a full-stack JavaScript and PHP developer since then. I’ve endeavoured to pay forward the support I’ve received by mentoring others, and am trying to reduce the gender pay gap by helping more women get into tech and using my experiences from my previous career to help women currently in tech to achieve management positions.
