Sophie DeBenedetto
The Flatiron School


Sophie is an engineer at The Flatiron School, where she helps build––an educational platform, powered by Elixir, that delivers content and tools to students learning how to code. As a former Flatiron teacher, and student herself, she is passionate about providing tech education to a broad audience and helping people change their lives through code. That’s why she jumped at the chance to join the team at Elixir School, a free open source Elixir curriculum, where she’s lucky enough to collaborate with Elixir devs, teachers and translators around the world who are working to bring Elixir to more and more learners. Historically she is a cat person, but will admit to owning a dog.
