Nothing, it's free! You just need to be excited!
Who is this aimed for?
Women of any age with basic knowledge of working with a computer. We’ve had people of all ages taking part. The workshops are run primarily in Polish (unless there are non-Polish speaking attendees in groups) but knowing some English certainly helps.
How do you choose the attendees?
We want a diverse group of people who are motivated and curious about learning.
What do I need to attend?
A healthy amount of curiosity and your own laptop. That's all! We provide the venue, food and coffee :)
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.
