Networking & Workshops

Women’s Tech Hub ∼ Bristol exists to encourage local women and gender non-conforming folks in tech and find ways that they can develop their careers in tech.

We aim to facilitate dialogue between local ‘women in tech’ groups and industry, with practical support such as finding sponsorship and venues for the diverse events and avoiding calendar clashes. We want to help local companies create a more diverse and inclusive workplace culture that benefits everyone.

We post a weekly newsletter post every Sunday Highlighting all the events that we spot and believe may be of interest in the region.

Free Three Fridays

Women’s Tech Hub runs Free Free Fridays (F3F) every other Friday from 10 –1pm, where we are kindly hosted by Desklodge Old Market for free hotdesking.  Our members are welcome to come along for career or networking support, we have ADLIB also in attendance to help with CV’s or guide you in your career search.

Workshop Wednesdays

Workshop Wednesdays

We try to support as many events as possible to help our members and partner groups to encourage and enable people into tech so we set up Workshop Wednesdays (which we seem to have adopted a rather sing-song tone when saying it, for some reason not even known by ourselves!).

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 (other than an internal sponsor recruiter as noted above) and a strict social media policy which you can find in our Code of Conduct, the meetup is open to everyone (yes that includes men) so please join up and sign up if you want to come along.

Next Date & workshops:

Workshop Wednesday 20th November 2019 will house:

~ Ceri Newton – Agile in a (pistachio) nutshell: a brief introduction to Agile ways of working
Ceri’s been coaching individuals, teams and businesses for well over a decade, and with her background in teaching and psychology, has been referred to more than once as the “Mary Poppins of Agile”. She will be running this hands-on session for anyone who wants to understand a little more about Agile – what it is, how it works and who it’s for. You’ll come out feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready to take on your next Agile project!

~ 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.
