Collaborative working on ‘do good’ projects anyone?

working group women
We know that a lot of our members are currently trying hard to get into the tech industry and could do with some practical support on their upskilling.
So .. we’ve teamed up with the lovely CodeHub lot, who are going to allow us to run teams at their bi-weekly hacks to test out our skills on live projects.  We welcome helpers to support, especially if you have accidentally fallen into a PM role and missing your old skills!
We currently have a charity and a pre-startup health tech company both keen on getting some support.  It is unpaid as we are helping out for charities and non tech groups or WTF members to let us play with their project, help us help one another learn great skills and gain a portfolio.

The first one is this tuesday so short notice but feel free to pop along if you are free or join up to a later one, sign up here CodeHub.

 

Voxxed Days & Bath Digital Festival

This week we are really excited to have been invited to Voxxed Days.
It’s on the 25th October @ the watershed in Bristol with sessions on topics including Cloud, Big Data, AI, Robotics, Programming Languages, Java, Security, Architecture and Developer.  They have managed to get a 25% female speaker lineup this year which we love and also given us a 30% discount to all our members (which we love even more) so mail us and we can send you the code on info@wthub.org.

It’s Ada Lovelace Day this week!

Ada

Celebrating Ada

As I’m sure all of you reading this know, Ada Lovelace  was the first to recognise that the machine had applications beyond pure calculation, and published the first algorithm intended to be carried out by such a machine.  As a result, she is sometimes regarded as the first to recognise the full potential of a computing machine and the first computer programmer.  Every year we celebrate the fact that this is the industry for women to be involved in and this year is no exeption!

Borrowing this great pick from The finding Ada page

WTF ~ Bristol Q3: Starting up

Women Tech Founders – Getting off the ground

As many of you know, you’ve hopefully seen the T-shirts!, we run a quarterly event to support Women Tech Founders.
This is to support women who are interested in starting their own enterprise,  who are interested in what it takes to run a start-up, or already have a company and are looking for a supportive nework.
We welcome men who are interested in supporting women to come along and  it runs quarterly with themes based on stages of start-up.  The next one is on October the 16th and you can join up here.
