Sally Bridgewater

Sally started to learn to code in August 2016 using codecademy.com, then working through a Java textbook with help from her father and finally winning a place on a women-only free bootcamp called ‘Get Into Tech’. She started working as a developer on Sky’s grad scheme in July 2017 and now works in React, Node, and Elixir on the sky.com homepage. Sally arrived in the tech industry via a music degree (heavy on the harmony) from Cambridge University, and a year of training as a counsellor. She loves championing women in tech, ADHD recognition and effective altruism. She also enjoys walking her cute dog with her cute fiancé and trying to write her science fiction novel ‘The Boundless.’
