About

ProjectFunction is a small start up which aims to educate and encourage under-represented and marginalised people to get involved in the tech industry. Since 2018, we have successfully taught over 70 learners in Nottingham, UK through our free courses. 



It came about as a result of how difficult it is for beginners to pick up web development and design. After taking part as instructors in a recent web development course aimed at encouraging more women into tech, we discovered that the resources which were provided by the organisers were either outdated or incorrect. And as minorities in tech with some years of experience, we felt quite let down by the organisers - even worse, we felt like we were letting down those we were meant to be helping.

After some further research into the organisation, we realised that the reason why the resources were so bad, was because the motive was not to educate, but to encourage women into tech by making it appear easier than it is - just to be able to have the statistics to say they "helped" women get into the tech industry. We felt like we had to do something; hence ProjectFunction was born.

Our aim is simple; we want to provide a platform where ideas, step-by-step tutorials and pointers can be shared by creators, learners and designers, in order to encourage and support those under-represented and marginalised in tech, into tech. We run courses on Web Development, Web Design, and User experience. Unlike other organisations in this field, our courses are open to anyone with an interest in learning, regardless of their age or gender. We try especially hard to create an environment where our learners feel welcomed, and our courses are designed to be comprehensive and easy to pick up by anyone, regardless of their skill-set.

In addition to providing free courses, we strive to maintain an online platform where thoughtful and educational exchanges of ideas can take place. As of January 2019, we launched our online tools to enhance our members' learning experience.

We value all feedback, and are open to suggestions. We will try our best to implement any changes if there is enough demand for it. And where necessary we will create community threads to discuss or collect feedback on new features or ideas. Together, we hope to shape this platform into a community-driven space, where content is kept up to date, accessible, and free.


Goals
23 of 200 patrons
When we reach 200 patrons, we will be able to scale up our operation to provide opportunities for even more people to get into tech.
