If you identify as a woman and want to learn how to make web applications, we have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners!
When: November 18, 2017 from 9am-5pm; Install party on November 16, 2017 from 5:30pm-7:30pm
Where: Common Code HQ, 8 Studley St, Abbotsford VIC 3067
Bring: Laptop, charger, water bottle & learning mindset
Cost: Free! Need assistance in getting to Melbourne from regional Victoria? Email us!
Thursday evening will be our install party where we install all the necessary requirements for the workshop and you'll get the opportunity to meet your fellow participants and coaches. It's pretty casual. If you can't make the Thursday, that's ok! It doesn't disqualify you from applying. If you can't make it on the Thursday for the install party, we'll help get you sorted for Saturday beforehand to give you the most amount of time to work on the actual tutorial.
We believe the tech industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology. The future is female. We want to offer you the opportunity to learn the basics of programming in a safe environment. Who knows, maybe you'll even end up transitioning careers! We're here to support you and your journey.
Apply for the workshop!
Do you identify as a woman? Do you have a laptop? Then you're eligible to apply for our workshop! You don't need to know anything technical – our workshop is for women who are completely new to programming. It's a great non-confrontational introductory workshop.
