About the Teacher:
For Laura Vecchio (http://www.linkedin.com/in/lauravecchio/), programming was love at first sight. After writing her first lines of code while pursuing a Marketing degree from Bentley University, she knew she was destined to be a geek. After Bentley, her desire to live at the intersection of marketing and technology fueled her decision to pair her business background with a Web Development Certificate from Boston University's CDIA. She has since worn many hats in the tech industry including social media marketer, digital strategist and is now a web engineer at Bose Corporation. When she is not coding, Laura is working hard to keep her inner foodie in check with her inner yogi. She is both a Chapter Leader and Teacher with Girl Develop It Boston.
