Description

If you’re looking to learn basic programming skills or join our TechLadies Bootcamp #5, you should join us at the TechLadies Pre-Bootcamp Workshops!


What is the TechLadies Bootcamp #5?

TechLadies is a community for women in Asia to connect, learn, and advance as engineers, product managers, and designers. One of our main programs, the oversubscribed TechLadies Bootcamp, is back!

Held in Singapore, the TechLadies Bootcamp #5 is a 13-week part-time accelerated learning program designed for women who wish to be professional programmers. Ladies are guided by industry experts to create products for nonprofit organizations. 30% of the graduates received technical internships and/or were hired as junior software engineers.

The next TechLadies Bootcamp will run from 19 Oct 2019 to 25 Jan 2020 teaching the Javascript programming language. Read more about the TechLadies Bootcamp #5 at this link.


Apply to the TechLadies Bootcamp #5

We learned that it is important for TechLadies Bootcamp participants to have some sort of programming foundation in order to build a web product that will be used by the non-profits.

Hence, you will need to complete a technical task before applying to the TechLadies Bootcamp. Our application form for the bootcamp itself and the technical task details will be available from 22nd Aug 2019.

Don’t worry, we are here to help you acquire the skills you need to complete the task with this series of workshops! You don't need to attend all 3 workshops, the sessions will be recorded as well.

Only women who have completed the final task outlined in the application form are eligible to be considered for the TechLadies Bootcamp.

To minimize no-shows, a small fee per workshop is required. Scholarships are provided for women with financial difficulties. Please email janyn@techladies.co to request for scholarships. As light refreshments are provided, we will be unable to provide any refund.


Commitment to Diversity in Tech

As we are trying to improve the gender ratio of the tech industry, these workshops are only for women and those who identify as one. Should you no longer be able to attend, please transfer your ticket to a woman.

If you have any questions on the bootcamp or the pre-bootcamp workshops, please drop us an email at janyn@techladies.co.
