Web Girls – A free coding workshop for women

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

We are excited to present our first ever Geraldton{web}Girls event. This event is powered by Pollinators and City Hive, and made possible by New Industries WA, and Spacecubed.

Geraldton{web}Girls is a grassroots organisation empowering women to code and offers pathways into tech careers by organising free programming workshops and events. Our goal is to increase the diversity in the tech community, spark collaboration, creativity, and expand networks.

We offer beginner level HTML & CSS, and Django & Python workshops (subject to change, depending on interest). Participants are mentored by leading professionals who have extensive experience in industry.

FAQs

How much does this workshop cost? Nothing, It’s free! You just need to be excited! We even provide food – maybe there is such thing as a free lunch.

Who is this aimed at? Women of any age with basic knowledge of working with a computer. We’ve had people of all ages taking part.

Do I need to know anything technical? No – this is a workshop designed for beginners. There will be mentors on hand across the weekend to help out with any questions you have.

Do I need to bring my own computer? Yes, you do, we don’t have laptops to spare, unfortunately.

I know how to program – can I help? Yippee! We’re also looking for people to be mentors, so if you would like to offer your time and skills, we would love to have you. Please select a mentor ticket, or contact kate@spacecubed.com to get involved.
