Code & Cake Workshop



Let’s dive deeper into Coding <3

Whether you’ve been to a Beginners’ Workshop or started programming on your own – if you have a bit of the basics down, this day is for you!

Take these hours to dive deeper into a tutorial, get help on a coding question or continue projects you’ve been working on before.

You can come with your study group, a friend or by yourself; and you can choose to work alone or with others.

We would like to invite you in the morning to quickly share with the others what your plan for the day is, so that they could maybe join in or just be inspired as well. Other than that, the learning is self-organized.

We will simply provide some tutorials / task suggestions, eager-to-help-out coaches and, of course, some cake.

Lunch will not be provided, but you’re very welcome to bring something for your own and/or something to share. 

Get active – start your own study group!

You met many interested women at the beginners‘ workshop, but you are all not sure how to continue studying? Maybe you couldn’t find a study group that fits your skill level or calendar? Then starting your own study group might be a good idea! Code&Cake is a great opportunity to connect with other learners and experienced programmers, who might want to become your future coaches! Just ask them. 🙂


Lerne noch mehr Programmieren <3

Egal ob du an einem Beginner Workshop teilgenommen hast oder dir selber programmieren beibringst, Code & Cake Workshop ist der perfekte Tag für dich um weiter zu lernen.

Nutze diese Stunden, um dich tiefer mit einem Tutorial zu beschäftigen, einem Coach deine Fragen zu stellen oder mit deinem Projekt fortzufahren, an dem du bereits arbeitest.

Du kannst zusammen mit deiner Projektgruppe vorbeikommen (auch mit euren Coaches, wenn ihr wollt), mit FreundInnen oder alleine. Du kannst mit anderen zusammen arbeiten, aber du musst nicht.

Zu Beginn des Tages würden wir uns freuen, wenn du kurz erzählst, was du planst, damit andere sich anschliessen können oder Inspirationen bekommen können. Der Rest des Tages ist selbst organisiert. Wir stellen euch Coaches zur Verfügung und natürlich Kuchen. 🙂

Wir bieten leider kein Mittagessen, aber wenn jede/r etwas sich sich und etwas zum teilen mitbringt, dann können wir ein Buffet aufbauen. 🙂

Werde aktiv – gründe deine eigene Study Group

Du hast beim Beginners‘ Workshop viele interessierte Frauen getroffen, aber ihr wisst alle nicht genau, wie ihr weiterlernen sollt? Vielleicht habt ihr keine Gruppe gefunden, die vom Schwierigkeitsgrad oder Termin her für euch passt? Dann gründet doch einfach eure eigene Study Group! Bei Code&Cake könnt ihr euch mit anderen Lernenden und erfahrenen Programmierer_innen vernetzen, die euch vielleicht in Zukunft coachen werden! Fragt sie einfach. 🙂

  • Is this class for beginners? Not exactly. You should at least have some programming experiences. If you’ve for example attended a beginners workshop before or programmed with the help of a tutorial, you should be fine.
  • I signed up for the event, am I automatically attending? Yes, there is no application process for our Code & Cake workshops. You will also not be getting a confirmation mail. So long as you’ve filled up the form and sent it in, you can join.
  • I am a rails programmer and would like to coach. How can I get in touch? Sign up as a coach for the event. If the application is already closed, please send us an email. We will get in touch with you.
  • I’m a guy, can I join as a student as well? Rails Girls Berlin is focused on teaching women and creating a safe space for them. There are many other mixed groups you could join, for example OpenTech School.
  • What should I bring for the workshop? You will need a laptop (and don’t forget your power cable). If you don’t have either of those, let us know in advance (by writing a note in your application form or sending us an e-mail), so we can see if we can arrange one for you – we will then get in contact with you through your e-mail. Please do bring something to eat for yourself and something to share, so we can have a little buffet.
