Code First Girls

Code First: Girls is a free, part-time coding course taking place on university campuses for high-potential female students who want to be part of the digital revolution.  It is aimed at beginners and is for women students of any age, level and/or subject.

We teach the basics of development in two steps:

1. Our beginners' course introduces HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Git, GitHub collaboration, and more (front-end programming).  These languages teach you how to make a website, how to improve its design and how to push it online

2. Our follow-on course teaches Python, including Sinatra, Heroku and other frameworks (back-end programming). These languages teach you how to make forms, databases, and how to make web based applications.

  • Courses last 8 weeks and take place for 2 hours in the evenings each week. At the end of the course, you will receive a Code First: Girls certificate.
  • Places are limited to 30 students. 
  • For further information about the course and how to apply, please visit us or join the Facebook group if you have any questions.


Additional Information for students interested in 2017/2018 courses:

We hope to run a beginner front-end web development course each semester as well as an introduction to back-end development using Python in the second semester. 

Courses in the first semester will run from 7-9pm for 8 weeks commencing on 9th October. 

Courses in the second semester will run from 6.30-8.30pm for 8 weeks commencing on 15th January. 

Both courses will have a welcome social event and a final presentation ceremony. You will need some basic web dev skills for the Python course, either having previously completed our introductory course, or through your own study / work.  

You do not need to have completed the web development course to apply for the Python course.  

Applications for the Spring/Summer 2018 course are open NOW and close at midnight on Sunday 17th December.

Please apply here.
