How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it's free! You just need to be enthusiastic and willing to learn!

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. For this event, we aim to have 2 core groups: 14-18 year olds, and those 19+.

Can men attend? Yes, but you need to be accompanied by an interested lady. Also, girls are given a priority.

I know how to program - How can I help? We’re also looking for people to be Coaches! We’ll be sure to get you up to speed on the workshop before the event to walk you through the curriculum. Apply as a Coach here! We'd love to have you along for the weekend.
