Shannon Turner

Founder, Hear Me Code

Washington, D.C.

Shannon Turner is a software developer and founder of Hear Me Code, offering free beginner-friendly coding classes for women, by women, in the DC area. In addition to teaching Python, SQL, and how to get started with APIs, she also serves as a mentor with Code for Progress.

In her spare time she creates games to help people discover, learn about, and share art from museums around the world; a site to figure out whether your movie passes the Bechdel test — and to suggest another movie if it doesn’t; and a site exposing who gives money to misogynist, racist, xenophobic, and homophobic, and transphobic politicians; among other projects.
