"I cannot code thus I cannot realize my super cool idea into a startup" - heard something like this? Maybe it's your own thought? That's why Penang startup events by Piktochart is hosting this event (for FREE) to girls and boys who have no experience with coding but might want to try it out.
Our primary aim is to give tools and a community for women to understand technology and to build their ideas. We do this by providing a great experience on building things and by making technology more approachable.
Learn sketching, prototyping, basic programming and get introduced to the world of technology from the devs at Piktochart.
1) I am a guy - can I sign up?
Yes! Please spread the word to your female friends too.
2) Why Ruby on Rails?
Because ROR is awesome and really easy to pick up compared to the other languages
3) Why would I want to consider learning programming?
If you have been frustrated that you wanted to build a new site/app but it costs way too much to get someone to build it for you, come learn the basics! It's really not that intimidating plus we're all doing this together!
4) Why girls?
The world of tech and startups is heavily skewed male and we think that girls can be awesome coders as well.
5) Is transportation or accommodation provided?
We are sorry that both mentioned are not covered. If you are travelling from other places, do arrange your own transportation and accommodation.
The event is completely FREE but we still recommend that you respect the RSVP. We will provide snacks and lunch. Parking around Suntech isn't usually a problem but let us know if you encounter any problem.
