Social Media Week

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a global conference held in over 25 cities worldwide. Participate in the Bristol edition and attend events across the city which are designed to upskill, inform, explore ideas and opportunities and further the conversation on key issues in media, marketing and technology. For full details you can check out the main website Social Media Week on from the 10th to the 14th – we’re expecting that they’ll be publicising it well!

Workshop Wednesdays

Starting at the next Workshop Wednesday 19th June, Kathryn (from CodeHub (https://www.codehub.org.uk/) will be kicking off self-led python study group(s).  The aim is to bring together people who want to learn or improve their python skills, provide suggestions on learning materials/courses, and share experiences on what makes effective self-led groups.  At the end of the evening we’d hope that there would be one or more groups who have agreed to study together and have, at least, planned the next step.  

All levels and genders are welcome, though the focus is likely to be on those who are less (or no) experienced in python.  We would warmly welcome those who have a few python skills already and would be willing to support the groups – it will be a fun way of helping your own development, as well as being a great addition to your CV!

GrrrlGames will also be there ” Grrrl Games is for women* interested in the field of game development. We meet up on the first Tuesday of every month in Bristol, for talks, practical sessions and group discussions on all areas of gaming. “

Any companies wishing to engage by paying for pizzas and drinks and running workshops etc please get in touch on info@wthub.org.

Workshop Wednesdays starts on the 22nd

This is the week we have been waiting for as we finally kick off our Workshop Wednesdays taking over the entire third floor of the lovely Desklodge House. The space is open to all and you can join up on Women’s Tech Hub to pop along – and YES men are welcome as members with Women’s Tech Hub .. we considered maybe renaming it to “Wo Men’s” so it wasn’t so scarey but thought that really, the type of men we want to see, would get over their fear of the word and sign up.

We plan to run workshops around different themes so if you want to put together some training/workshops around Python, Javascript, UX, learning Salesforce etc then speak to us and we can plan it in. We are also planning on running some for our founders and start ups as well as supporting the local bootcamp cohorts to help them get work.

This week we have the wonderful Mia Impey ADLIB’s Diversity and Inclusion specialist doing a workshop on CV’s.

Amy Newton will be giving a talk on “Essentials of a business plan in raising bank funding for your business” to help out start ups – for this you can sign up on Women’s Tech Founders (same rules re gender as above … I mean it’s not like MANPOWER only get men into jobs – or do they?)
