CoderDojoGirls for Partner

At CoderDojoDCU we provide a class where girls will definitely not be outnumbered, the content is more fun for girls and the mentors are also majority female (you’ll find the odd one with a deeper voice and a dodgy wig)

About Coding Grace

Coding Grace are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. Some of us code full-time, or just for fun (or both). We have people who are part of other technical user groups such as Dublin ALT.NET, GameCraft, Python Ireland, Ruby Ireland and more…
We provide female-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors.
We aim to provide a support network for people from all backgrounds and hope our outreach will help bring those who are interested in code development together and learn from one another.
