Why are you doing this ?

Our main goal is to reduce gender inequality in IT industry. We believe that by providing supportive environment to women beginners to learn programming, it would encourage women to consider programming in career someday !

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No! Workshops are for beginners. You don’t need to know anything about it. However, if you have a little bit of technical knowledge (i.e. you know what HTML or CSS are) you still can apply!

Should I bring my own laptop?

Yes. We have no hardware, so we expect you to bring your computer with you. It is also important for us that you will take home everything you’ll write and create during workshops.

Is it all free?

Absolutely ! Coaches and Organisers are volunteering to contribute their skills and time to the society. Sharing is caring :)

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to Sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
