What we do
We organize free workshops for women* without prior experience in programming. These workshops are led by skilled Ruby on Rails programmers who are eager to help newbies and to increase the number of women* in IT. During our workshops, we try to create a cozy space where questions are welcome and where there is no pressure nor competition. To accomplish that, we keep the group sizes small and have one dedicated coach per two or three learners.

Sometimes, it feels like I’m getting paid to solve puzzles! Which is great. Programming is creative, requires an eye for detail and gets me in this state of mind where not a lot things can distract me. Also it opens up a way to work together with others on a task that I never experienced in any other kind of work. It’s like thinking together.
