“This event is organized for women by women, trans inclusive, but all genders are welcome. If you don’t identify as female, and want to join in, please bring along someone who does. Our goal is to get more women to be confident in their programming skills.”
A few unique things about this event is:
- The training is really target for women at any levels, no pre-requisite required.
- The event is sold out within 2 days and even the volunteer list is completely full. The amazing power of women in technology!
- Many thanks to Estelle Weyl and food sponsors, we had amazingly good breakfast, lunch and food through the whole day. We had pasta (not pizza) for lunch.
