Lilly launched a free course for anyone interested in app development!

In her own words:

“On Wednesday May 27th, I’m launching a new course called the 7 Day App Developer Challenge. It’s a free resource for beginners that want to learn an overview (no coding) of app development.

Enrollment opens on May 27th @ 9 AM PDT and the 7 day challenge starts on June 1st.

This would be perfect for women in tech that potentially want to learn app development, but don’t know where to start.”

Preparing for a @javaswift launch today! Here’s what I’m working on👇 — 5:15 – 6:30: check emails and social media. Feed Jet. Take a shower. Start vlogging for tomorrow’s YT video. Read a new book for 30 minutes! 6:30 – 8:30: take Jet on a walk, clean the kitchen, and morning meeting with @markdalton_ about plans for the day. 8:30 – 12:00: create the cooolest graphics in Adobe illustrator. We are announcing our new @javaswift course TOMORROW. I’m so excited!! 12:00 – 1:00: grill bacon cheese burgers with Mark and Jet! 1:00 – 3:00: do a photo shoot for the @javaswift launch. I’m prepping everything for social media in advance so launching is as stress-free as possible. 3:00 – 4:00: social media tasks. I’ve been learning some cool editing tricks in Lightroom. 4:00 – 8:30: finish up my “must-get-done” task, cook dinner, take Jet on a second walk. Thought I’d be done at 5, but it didn’t happen today. I’ve implemented one thing into my work routine, and it’s helped me feel less overwhelmed and more productive. I focus on getting one thing, and one thing only, done in a day. Everything else is after that. Instead of starting 5 things and finishing none, I’m going to finish one and then move on to other tasks. This has worked so well for me. Comment below if you’re going to try it too!👇 — How was your day???

I AM GIVING A TEDx TALK!😎. . I can’t believe I’m typing these words!! It’s been a very important goal of my life. 🙌🏽 Here’s a lil timeline of how it happened;. . In 2017, I started Her STEM Story with a goal to share stories of women in STEM professions from around the world. . In 2018, I gave my first paid talk & realized PUBLIC SPEAKING IS MY SUPERPOWER!. . Right away, I added a HUGE GOAL to my list..”GIVE A TED TALK”. In 2019, I kept it there and applied to a couple of events and got rejected. . In 2020, I finally started applying strategically and the very first application got accepted!!! I can’t wait to SHARE MY IDEA with the world. . Anything is possible when you start BELIEVING IN YOUR BRILLIANCE!!!. . Tell me what’s your biggest dream??👇🏽👇🏽. . #Tedx

Lilly says:

“This is our website where anyone interested can enroll/access the 7 Day App Developer Challenge.”

Announcing the 7 Day App Developer Challenge!! And guess what… IT’S FREE🔥👇 — So many people have sent me a DM looking for advice about app development. • “Where do I start?” “Android or iOS?” “How do I get into the job market?” “How do I stay motivated?” “How much money can I make?” “How can I code my app idea?” • So I decided to create a FREE course that will help you answer those questions (and 🔥 you up about learning app development). Each day of the challenge will take you one step further to figuring out how you want to succeed in app development! AND…. Those who finish the challenge have a little surprise waiting for them on the last day! Enrollment is opening on Wednesday May 27th at 9:00 AM PDT. The challenge starts on June 1st and goes through June 7th! Stayed tuned for more details tomorrow, and share this with a friend that you want to do the challenge with!💌 — Who’s excited?! I just posted a new Behind The Scenes YT vlog about preparing for this launch! Link in bio to watch👍
