Workshop Wednesday

Is getting its own post as it has so much going on! Last Wednesday was brilliant so a big shout out to all that came and all the brilliant Volunteers – we’ll update with more info on whats going on as we get it!

The upcoming one on the 25th is kindly sponsored for Pizzas by Toumetis – Big Thanks!!

This is a shared area to support beginners, returners and people wanting to learn more about tech or looking to return or upskill, with multiple areas and workshops. We are looking for sponsor companies to support us with pizzas and drinks in return for an opportunity to present and communicate either as an engagement or a recruitment piece. Women’s Tech Hub runs a no recruiter and a strict social media policy that you can find in our Code of Conduct.

Workshop Wednesday 25th September 2019 will house:

~ JavaScript Self-Led Study Group

Calling all those who are interested in learning or improving their JavaScript skills in a relaxed, collaborative environment.

If you’re new to JavaScript, we’ll give you a quick introduction into what you can do with the language, then guide you through the basics by working through small projects together. Our aim is to help pave the way to creating your first website. You will learn skills you’ll need on the job and create a personal portfolio that will make interviews easier.

While the study group’s focus is to help those who are less experienced, we’d be happy to accept anyone who is interested in offering support. Additionally, if you’re looking to build on your existing JavaScript skills, we’d be happy to help on a range of subjects, such as: React.js, Vue.js, Node.js, npm, MongoDB, functional style programming and more.

~ Workshop on a day in the life of a OneSharedEarth website volunteer
