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:

- Places are limited to 30 students.

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.
