Offline: 2017

New year, who dis? Just kidding! For those of you who are new around these parts, my new is Cori and I’m the blogger behind A La Code.  I started A La Code earlier this year to document my journey as a woman working in tech. In addition to starting my blog this year, I’ve met and have had the opportunity to work with some really talented and creative people, travel to some amazing places both alone for the first time and with friends, and I’ve gotten to learn and accomplish a lot both personally and professionally. I’ve put together a recap to reflect on everything that was in 2017 in preparation for all of the amazing things that are yet to come in 2018. 

Thank you, 2017. Thank you for all of your blessings, beauty, and beginnings. I’m ready for 2018, are you?

Eighty for Eighty 

A couple months ago, I made an ask on social media to help me make Poppy’s upcoming eightieth birthday special by sending him eighty cards for his eightieth birthday. To say I was overwhelmed by the response would be an understatement.
