Sign up to Women in Tech’s Spring Coding Courses
PA’s Women in Tech team is passionate about increasing gender diversity and inclusion within technical fields. We organise learning opportunities and create a community of support for women and non-binary individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in technology.
We’re proud to be relaunching our Introduction to Web Development, Introduction to Programming with Python, and Python for Data Science virtual classes this Spring. The courses will run for eight weeks in the evenings and are free of charge. They will start week commencing Monday 27 March and end on the week commencing Monday 15 May with a showcase event on Tuesday 23 May.
Previous coding courses have received overwhelmingly positive feedback, with most participants saying that following it, they would consider a career in technology.
All classes will be held virtually using a range of collaboration tools and are open to all women and non-binary people aged 18 and over with little to no coding experience.
