Event description
Join the next Women's Coding Day. We are offering special free all-day workshops on the core concepts of programming for the ladies!

About this Event

Free coding workshops for women, lead by women.

These workshops are entirely free as the goal is to give women the opportunity to find out if coding is something that could be an interesting future career path.

We are well aware that women as a demographic are still very much underrepresented in the tech industry. Unfortunately even today women hold less than 25% of the jobs in the field.

Le Wagon believes that a more diverse environment is a more creative and effective one! We want to empower women by giving them the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in tech. That’s why we’re more than happy to offer scholarships to young women interested in doing our Web Development Bootcamp.

Javascript for Beginners

Le Wagon will teach you the core concepts of Javascript and meet 35 likeminded women from diverse backgrounds. This workshop is for complete beginners! No programming knowledge needed.

Javascript is one of the top 10 most popular programming languages, and it's been used by all web browsers for more than a decade, which is why every web-developer must code some JS during their career. In addition to that, lots of cool JS frameworks were built recently, like React.js from Facebook.
