Workshop details Beginners


We are delighted to announce a partnered event with Etsy Ireland on Allyship. This event is open to everyone and is free to attend.

What does it mean to be an "ally"? Why do we need them? Join Etsy's Toria Gibbs and Ian Malpass to learn about being an effective male ally to women in tech. We'll provide an overview of the principles of feminism and offer practical steps that can be taken to curb unconscious bias and be effective allies to women in the workplace.

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.
