MotherBoard Event: How to choose a software coding course

A conversation to change an industry on Wednesday, June 22, 12:30pm to 1:30pm.

There is a huge emphasis on how we can encourage more women and young girls to take up a career in tech, but as we have previously discussed there often isn’t very much guidance on how to get from point A to point B from an education level.

We are seeing more and more women getting into tech later in life through coding courses. Coding boot camps offer a great way to get into software engineering, but each course tends to focus on different languages. How do you choose the right course for you? Which language is going to be best for the career you want? With business tech stacks being so varied we thought it would be a great idea to put together an event with speakers from some of the best coding courses available in the UK – this way we can hear first-hand what each course can offer and the careers paths that tend to follow.

Join us on Wednesday 22nd June at 12.30

< MotherBoard is a community that has been created to drive positive change throughout the UK Technology and Data sectors. Creating environments that support the inclusion of working mothers offers a significant solution to the shortage of talent across the Technology and Data sectors. We’re here to educate, challenge, and create that shift. We’re not here to berate, we’re here to connect, embrace and champion positive change-makers.

Our community is open to all. Mothers working in tech, organisations who are up-skilling returners back into work as well as employers that are consciously looking to create inclusive programmes to attract mothers into their Technology and Data teams. We actively encourage females, males, and non-binary folk to join us and to get involved. >

Your community organisers are:
