Event description

Description

** Saturday's workshop is sold out. However, due to popular demand we are excited to announce that tickets are now available for Sunday. The format for both dates will be the same. **

Have you always wanted to learn coding and programming but don't know where to start?

Are you overwhelmed by the idea of doing an online course on your own?

Do you want to expand your networks to other women, just like you who are also interested in tech?

Perth{web}Girls is a grassroots Perth 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.

The format of the day is as follows:

8.30 Arrival, coffee, chat

9.00 Introduction to PWG, and coding basics

10.00 Break into small teams to go through an online tutorial, with a mentor handy for when you get stuck.

12.30 Break for lunch (yes, lunch is provided, thanks to our brilliant sponsors)

1.00 onwards This day is all about YOU - work as fast or as slow as you like. Brain about to explode? Thats ok - feel free to stop, and return to it later.

4.30 That's all folks!

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. Please bring your laptop.

Do I need to know anything technical? No - this is a workshop designed for beginners. As long as you have a vague understanding of how a computer works, we can teach you the rest! 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 contact kate@spacecubed.com to get involved.
