Workshop Wednesdays & Girl Geek Dinners: back in ‘the real’

Workshop Wednesdays

We kept the first one relatively quiet to see how it was, turns out it was great so we’re going in for more.

This weeks special

PyLAB is cool

Steve will be (re)running the last session of the series  OOP via Python. As usual it is standalone, so don’t worry about needing to have seen previous sessions. The overall aim of the series is to dig beneath the surface of “object orientation” and explain what makes it tick and why it is effective. And in this final session he will be digging into two Design Patterns and illuminating why they are key. Also lightly cover Design Patterns in general but this isn’t a series about becoming an uber-nerd – we’re aiming for an architectural understanding. Or Oracular, depending on your preference. Our interest here is how these patterns hook into the core of object-oriented programming.

Also showing: anything basically, web development, python, flutter, data science, gaming .. anything techy goes. We’ll also have a women tech hub table for members wanting to drop in and catch up or talk careers or support. Sign up with codehub or Women’s Tech Hub.

Women’s Tech Hub in collaboration with UWE

April the 28th 2022 @ The Watershed, Central Bristol

Women’s Tech Hub is proud to present a one day conference in collaboration with UWE Bristol. Rather than it being a conference for people in the field, this is a conference for people interested in Data Science and learning what it’s about, how to transfer into the field and generally what it’s about.

Career support and intersectionality

Career compass

Girl geek scotland career support

Girl geek scotland are running some career events and they are virtual so well worth dropping into we think. First one this Wednesday.

From online courses and training, to graduate apprenticeships and MSc’s, we’ll hear how each made the decision to change and the reasons for choosing their very different routes to get there. We’re looking forward to hearing them share the goods, and the bads, about their journey, and hope it will inspire you too.

Imposter Syndrome?

Changing the Imposter Syndrome Narrative

This week we are running Workshop Wednesday alongside Girlgeekdinners as the subject matter we believe is of interest to everyone.

Imposter Syndrome

Feelings of self-doubt and a lack of confidence are often explained away as imposter syndrome, especially for working women, but is that a useful diagnosis?

If we want to build a truly diverse and inclusive world of work, then we need to question the universally accepted beliefs about imposter syndrome. We need to change the narrative from a problem faced by an individual and instead ask ourselves what it is about organisational culture that leads to 70% of people suffering from imposter syndrome during their careers.

Join Made Tech’s Delivery Principal, Laura Burnett as she explores how we can challenge the common misconceptions surrounding imposter syndrome and learn:

  • Who suffers from Imposter Syndrome?
  • Is Imposter Syndrome even a problem?
  • How should Imposter Syndrome be addressed?”

Full details for signing up are on our events page here.

Theres some great stuff going on in Bath – check out:
