In today's episode, we feature Kesha Williams, AWS hero and training architect at A Cloud Guru. The crew begins the podcast by diving into Kesha's journey through tech, beginning with her introduction to coding as a child. They discuss her progression to java developer, and how her career eventually led her to working with machine learning and AWS. Kesha talks about her latest project in machine learning, a pre-crime prediction model that is inspired by the film 'Minority Report.' They continue on to discuss why it feels like there is a communication breakdown with young people and computer science, and how you don't need to be a math genius to be a good coder. The show finishes up with Kesha introducing Colors of STEM, an organization she founded to help give young girls role models in STEM careers.
