Female Coders Workshop Day

You want to learn programming or try out a new programming language? Then the Female Coders Workshop Day is the right place for you – by women for women*!

At the Female Coders Workshop Day you can dive into the world of programming, try out new programming languages and exchange ideas with like-minded people. The Female Coders Mentors have prepared exciting workshops for you in four main areas: Web Development with HTML, CSS and JavaScript, a word guessing game with Python, design with Wireframes and building a webapp with React and Material. The event is free and takes place online.

Our focus is to connect women* with technology and prepare them to take their next steps in IT. At the Female Coders Workshop Day, our mentors will support you and answer any questions you may have.

* Women = all people who (partially) identify as women.

Workshops

Track 1 – Python – Wort-Ratespiel (für Anfänger) ()

In this workshop we will implement a word guessing game in python. You are new to programming? Then this workshop is perfect for you. You will learn how to handle different datatypes and code your first if-else statement and loops. We will work together on the game and everyone will have enough time to first solve the small tasks by herself.
You only need a Google account to participate, we will work in google colab. No need to install anything.

Track 2 – Design mit Wireframes (für Anfänger) ()

mit Karina

In this workshop you will get a small insight into how it comes from an idea to the first wireframes. In the first step we will break down an idea so that we can prepare it for the target group. Because the most important thing in a good design is to make it interesting for the target group. In the second step, we will work together to create a so-called user journey for the idea. We will present this user journey with hand-drawn wireframes and you can simply admire your first work with pen and paper.
Previous knowledge is not necessary.

Track 3 – App-Entwicklung mit React und Material ()

In this session, we will build our own webapp using React and Material. We will learn about typescript, react in general and the tooling that comes with it.
We will use Visual Studio Code as our editor. If you can not install it you can use an online editor like Stackblitz.
In order to not spend too much time on design we will use the Material library, a library full of mobile-first developed components. We will learn how to customize Material’s theme in order to get the most out of it.

Track 4 – Erstelle deine eigene Website mit HTML und CSS (für Anfänger) ()

mit Marlene

In this session, we will create our own website with HTML and CSS and host it on GitHub to make it available on the internet. We will learn how to include images and give our website a certain something by using CSS. During this workshop we will also look into search engine optimisation to make sure that your website gets higher ranked on Google.
We will use Visual Studio Code as our editor. If you can not install it you can use an online editor like Stackblitz.
In order to host your website, you will be required to create an account on GitHub.

All workshops are free to choose and are a full day workshop and therefore cannot be combined with others.

The number of participants in the workshops is limited, so we recommend you register soon.
