Mel McGee


Founder of We Can Code IT, CEO/CTO of Rovar Augmented Reality, and President of imageNation Web Experts, Mel McGee is everything but a slacker. She’s a high-tech guru, a serial entrepreneur, an experienced educator, and a Gestalt-trained facilitator who knows how to communicate and lead. Her 17 years in development raise the level on what most expect from software engineers.

Mel’s taught technology and programming to kids and adults at LCCC, Hondros College, as well as a variety of coding workshops on her own. She has a knack for making coding fun and technology easy to understand. She loves sharing her knowledge, and wants to see more women and girls join her in the field!

She’s married, has a daughter who is learning how to program, and three dogs who follow her everywhere they possibly can.

Shana Mysko


Co-Founder of We Can Code IT, and COO/CMO of Rovar Augmented Reality, Shana Mysko doesn’t like sitting at desks. She likes robust responsibilities, making customers happy, and making We Can Code IT successful. After 11 years of working in advertising and marketing, she wanted to give something back to the world. We Can Code IT, with its focus on education and technology was right up her alley.

Shana met Mel McGee and the two quickly realized they shared loves of Nutella, dogs, and coffee that’s strong enough to fly a space shuttle to the moon. Oh, and they both wanted to help make STEM education fun and accessible, particularly to underrepresented populations.

Shana’s married and has a Boston Terrier who charms even the most audacious dog haters.
