Coding for Women

Coding for Women is a training course designed for women with a keen interest in coding and computing. The 10 week programme aims to increase knowledge and creativity in the basics of coding.

There are too few women in the technology sector and coding especially is seen as a male preserve. Instead of taking time to look at the many societal factors that make this so, lack of female interest is not one of them! We would rather get on and do something about it. Welcome to “Coding for Women”!

Programme organiser, Alex Morel, Managing Director of ALX Training, with over 14 years teaching experience said "We want to provide women with a comfortable and easily accessible environment in which they can learn the basics of coding. Many women want to learn more about technology, and coding in particular, but are put off by the lack of opportunities in Jersey. All female classes provide an atmosphere in which women can ask questions without feeling uncomfortable or ignorant and by offering this experience, we hope to inspire more women to become involved in IT."

The training programme begins on Wednesday 5th February 2014 and runs for 10 consecutive weeks. Sessions start at 5.15pm and last approximately 1 hour. The training will be facilitated by Emma Gamble. Sessions will take place at Regus, Floor One, Liberation Station, Esplanade, St Helier, JE2 3AS. Programme content includes;

Week 1  Constants and Variables
Week 2  Control Flow statements
Week 3  Functions
Week 4  More complex data types
Week 5  Introduction to web programming
Week 6 + 7 HTML basics
Week 8  Advanced concepts
Week 9  Databases
Week 10  Development Lifecycle

This is an introduction to the basics of Coding and is primarily not a certificate based course. Participants will not need to have any background knowledge on the topic, just a keen interest and a logical brain!

Paul Masterton, Chairman at Digital Jersey, sponsors of the programme commented “We are delighted to be sponsoring “Coding for Women” as part of our commitment to digital education.
