Subject: Exciting Free ‘Women in Tech’ Training Initiative from Oxford – Summer of Code
This Oxford postgrad (with a decade of software engineering experience in the Silicon Valley) is starting an exciting free initiative to get more women coding. 12 week programme outlined below, combining self-directed learning and weekly hack-challenges.
Social Media signup is going very well – they’re aiming for 10,000 pre-registrations and after just 2 months is at 6,500…this could be something for the women in your university.
Do please feel free to circulate – and thank you in advance.
Have a great weekend
Other Languages WANTED
Do you speak another language? While the Summer of Code will require basic English fluency both in spoken and written English, we realize that gathering interest among women in other countries will be much easier if the call-to-action is done in the local language. Please help us translate, if you can. Submit your translation below, then we will add them to this page for all to share. Each accepted translator will receive a personal 1-on-1 career coaching session for 30 minutes free of charge by one of the software engineers who support the Summer of Code as a thank you.
This we forget anything? Do you have an idea for something better? Please post in the Women Helping Women Coders group and we will add it here! Thank you for all of you who have already contributed ideas, designs and are building your local communities!
