How much does the workshop cost? $10. This is just to help cover expenses for the event.

Who is this intended for? Women of any age with basic knowledge of working with a computer. If you are under 15 years old, please bring a parent or guardian with you.

Do I need a laptop? Yes! Please bring your laptop with you. If you don't have one, email us. We can try to help you procure one for the event.

Will there be childcare? Maybe. We are currently trying to make it work. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for updates.

Can men attend? Sure, but you need to be accompanied by an interested lady. Also, women and girls are given priority in the application process.

I know how to program. How can I help? We’re also looking for people to be coaches. Email us to volunteer!.

Why are you doing this? We believe that the gender imbalance in programming is a Bad Thing™. This is our small attempt at getting more women involved, because when programming is more diverse, programming is more awesome.
