    "The biggest obstacle is at the same time sometimes a motivating one: there is a lot to learn and there is always more. So the first step is to make learning a habit. You will always learn new things so it is crucial that you don’t discourage yourself if you don’t know something. You just have to learn it."

    Details and registration

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.

Join a Project Group

We encourage attendees to join or form a project group to continue learning. Check out the existing groups!

Our free workshops are tailored to learners without prior experience with programming. Come and join us!

Success Stories

Rebecca

People can very easily kill your motivations but the truth is: it’s never too late, you are never too old to learn something new, do something completely different or something you thought is out of your league. Chances are high it’s within range!

Linda Bergen

I was unhappily working in marketing which was not intellectually stimulating enough for me. I need to be challenged, and to be able to learn something every day. This is what is rewarding for me in a job.
