She also shares how she got initial experience in the computer science field, how online course completion has changed since covid-19, and the powerful effects of enabling non-technical leaders and entrepreneurs to gain problem-solving skills.

Notable Quotes

  • “A lot of entrepreneurs who decide to dive into TechSpeak, it’s because they actually felt the pain of what it’s like to feel that uncertainty, what it’s like to have that fear of spending thousands of dollars and not knowing if what you’re investing in, in both time and money, is going to pan out.”                    - Nelly Yusupova
  • “Non-technical entrepreneurs, they see problems that technical people don’t and those problems, for the world, are really really important to be solved.”                                                                                                             - Nelly Yusupova
  • “If you have the fear, it’ll stop you. But if you say, I’m just going to take small steps to just make progress every day, then that’s no longer as scary.” - Nelly Yusupova
