Start from Scratch is brought to you by TechInPink, an initiative dedicated to mentoring and supporting young women in tech.
As one of the initiative, TechInPink will hold an all-female programming bootcamp bringing together ladies from all corners of Port Harcourt interested in Software Development. This will be a fun-filled day of hands-on coding and making new friends.
The bootcamp will be using the RailsGirls curriculum to give the first experience in software craftsmanship through introducing the participants to Ruby, Rails and HTML/CSS.
Who should attend?
-Ladies passionate about Software Development, but don’t know how or where to start.
-Ladies who are interested in Software Development but don’t know much about it.
-Ladies who’ve heard of Software Development and are curious to know what it’s all about.
You do not need any experience to attend, all you need is your passion and curious self.
Why should you attend?
-You will get to meet girls who share the same interests and this could be the beginning of a wonderful collaboration.
-Hands-on coding with the aim of building by the end of the day.
-Exposure to tools and fundamental programming conventions.
-Interact with ladies who are working as Software Developers. They will share their stories and you will get to ask them questions.
