Event description
This is the second part of our event series that caters to women that are interested in learning more about a career in technology and code.

About this Event

(Note: this is part two of a six part series for women that are interested in learning more about the world of software engineering. If you didn’t attend our first event, no problem -- please join us!)

ABOUT THIS EVENT

So, you’ve decided that you might want to become a software engineer. Even if you’re not 100% certain, the fact that you’re even considering it is a win. We’re here for it. The tech industry needs you!

Now what? How exactly does somebody pivot careers and become a software engineer?

In this second part of our event series that caters to women that have yet to explore the world of technology and code, we will lay out all possible paths to becoming a software engineer.

In this event, we’ll answer questions like:

Do I need a Computer Science (CS) degree?

How much will it cost to gain the skills I need to get hired?

How much time will it take?

Can I do it myself, in my own time?

I can’t afford to quit my job. What are my options?

If you’ve ever asked yourself any of these questions, we’ve got you covered: this is the event for you!

The second half of this event will feature a Q&A session with a panel of engineers, each of which took a different path to their role in tech. They’ll share with us their journeys and answer any and all questions we might have.

ABOUT THE SERIES

Whether you've always been curious as to what software engineers do or are looking to explore what a pivot into tech might look like, this series will leave no stone unturned.

We will meet weekly (on Thursdays) until March, with sessions on other aspects of software engineering, such as the path to becoming a software engineer, as well as the basics of CSS, HTML and JavaScript. Finally, during our last event, attendees will use the knowledge gained and launch their first application.

Join us! We look forward to seeing you at all of them!

PREREQUISITES
