This workshop is all about coding in a visual context. We’ll create some fun, visual stuff in Java — so you’ll come away from the workshop with a solid short intro to to one of the most popular programming languages out there. Women* ages 18+ are invited. *We are welcoming and respectful of trans women, non-binary individuals, and any others who identify as a woman in a way that is significant to them.
About Women’s Community of Code
Women’s Community of Code is a collaboration between Dr. Laney Strange and Dr. Ben Hescott of Northeastern University. Laney and Ben are computer science professors strongly committed to making computer science accessible to everyone. We’re excited to bring coding to more women and girls in the Boston area!
At these workshops, Laney conducts a fun and interactive learning experience that includes an introduction to computer programming, hands-on coding assignments, and usually a pretty awesome project you can keep working on forever, as computer scientists tend to do.
Women’s Community of Code is open to all women over age 18. Our workshops are beginner friendly and free to participate. We heartily welcome questions, comments, and feedback: reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, (415) 559-2759 with any of the above.
