Event Details

On Saturday September 7, 2013 Transcode will be holding a special 1-day introductory workshop at the Center. It's open to anyone who is eligible to apply to transcode (trans, genderqueer, gender non-conforming people), and will help you figure out if programming is something you want to learn. You can come whether or not you intend to apply to the longer Transcode class, but we highly recommend showing up if you do want to take the longer class.

We'll cover what programming is, and the basics of programming in python. This will be a hands-on event, so bring a laptop if you have one (if you don't, that's okay, and we'll do our best to accommodate).

Register today!

 

More Information: 

Transcode teaches trans, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming folks computer programming and software engineering skills. This university-style class is entirely free, and we will provide all the equipment you'll need to succeed at it.

The longer Transcode series will run similarly to a night class at college. We will have two classes a week (Tue & Thurs) starting in October, about 90 minutes each, with about 10 hours of work per week outside of class. A lot of time out of class sounds like a large commitment, but becoming a good programmer is much more about practice than about attending lectures. Apply for the series at www.transcodesf.org 

Transcode is a collaboration with the San Francisco LGBT Center (the Center) and the Trans* Employment Program (TEEI). The mission of TEEI is educating employers as well as connecting job seekers to equal and sustainable employment. TEEI staff at the Center are available to Transcode students to provide ongoing support, mentoring, and connection to industry. Additional TEEI services at the Center include one-on-one coaching and job search support for all trans* individuals.
