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: Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 9:30am-4:00pm; Install party on Thursday November 15, 2018 from 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Where: Common Code HQ, 8 - 10 Studley St, Abbotsford VIC 3067
Bring: Laptop, charger, water bottle & learning mindset

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 some of 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 improving diversity will greatly benefit STEM industries and we aim to encourage more women and gender minorities to enter into technology by providing an entry point. The future is diverse. 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 changing careers! We're here to support you and your journey.

Do you identify as a woman or gender minority? 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 those that are completely new to programming. It's a great non-confrontational introductory workshop.
