We organise regular workshops and meetups for women and provide a friendly and supportive learning environment. We need sponsors and patrons to keep on doing the important stuff we do!
Your sponsorship will provide:
- Learning materials for our programming library
- Stationery and office supplies
- Stickers (you can't be a coder without laptop stickers!)
- Coffee, tea and snacks for our attendees
- Pizza (if you're sponsoring our cybersecurity CryptoParty)
- T-shirts for mentors (if you're sponsoring Django Girls MK)
We're trans-inclusive, we welcome all women from all paths of life.
All workshops are free to attend.
Django Girls MK
Not enough women are entering STEM careers and we want to do our part in changing that. It all started with the Milton Keynes chapter of Django Girls in 2016, and since then we haven't stopped organising events and securing places where cis and trans women can learn how to code in a safe, inclusive environment.
We host bi-weekly coding workshops for girls and women of all ages and backgrounds. A team of hero volunteers join us to help attendees overcome any hurdle they encounter.
All events are beginner-friendly and welcome those with zero coding experience as well as those who are currently employed as programmers and web developers. Everyone is welcome and those with more experience can either get together to develop projects or coach beginners.
Our meetings are informal and relaxed. Take it as a space where you can come, have a chat about coding, have wifi and electricity to try out coding, swap tips, ask questions and even play some beginner-friendly online coding games.
Now that you're asking, yes, men are welcome to attend as well, but since our space is limited we'll prioritise women. We don't want men out of the IT industry, we just want more women in it!
We want to encourage more women to become web developers by sharing the wonderful world of coding.
At GirlsCode we believe in co-learning. Share what you know with others and help those that are less experienced than you are. Be kind.
