The course will be taught by Corina Acosta
Corina Acosta loved to code the minute she made a turtle move across the screen with GOTO statements in the 7th grade. Without any female role models to encourage her to focus on computers, her love of code remained dormant while she went on to pursue her love of Dance and Musical Theater. She eventually returned to her love of technology and pursued a B.S. in Computer Science at California State University, Northridge in 2003. She has since developed a career in Web Development spanning over 10 years and is currently part of an innovative team at Berklee Online, the extension school for Berklee College of Music. Corina has a desire to inspire and encourage other women to pursue technology with the hope of closing the gender gap that exists in STEM occupations and education.

• A laptop and charger.
