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. Please bring your laptop (Mac is preferred).

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

Which track should I pick? Ruby on Rails or JavaScript/Angular? It is best to pick a language that you already have some exposure to and build upon your knowledge. However this is a great opportunity to explore and build a web app in a new language!

I know how to program - How can I help? We’re also looking for people to be coaches. We’ll have a two-three hour workshop before the event to walk you through the curriculum. Apply here
