About this Event

New year, new you!

We're kicking off 2020 with an event series catering to women that have yet to explore the world of technology and code!

In this event, we’ll cover such topics as:

  • What do software engineers actually do?
  • Web developer, software engineer, programmer -- is there a difference?
  • What type of person makes a good developer?
  • How much money do programmers make?
  • But you need to like math to do that, right? (spoiler alert: no)

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 panel of all female engineers. With varying degrees of experience and backgrounds, they’ll share with us their journeys and answer any and all questions we might have.

We’ll provide food and drinks for the night, so don’t worry about dinner plans!

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!

Requirements

If you plan on attending the entirety of the series, we recommend bringing a laptop. If you don't have a laptop, you're still more than welcome to come, learn how to get started and pair with someone else!
