We are delighted to team up with WITS Ireland and Women in Technology Galway to run our first Coding Grace workshop in Galway. It will be a beginners Python workshop, and participants will be required to bring their own laptop.
We will be learn Python through making a text-based adventure game.
You will be able to write and execute Python scripts.
At the end, you have created a basic interactive text-based adventure game.
Women in Technology and Science (WITS) is an active forum supporting women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to reach their full potential through informed choices.
Since 1990 WITS has a proven track record in delivering initiatives that improve the recruitment and retention of women in STEM roles. WITS is also a strong advocate for celebrating the past and current successes of women in STEM.
Members come from a broad range of backgrounds within STEM. WITS members range in age and experience from third level students to some of the country’s most eminent senior academics and business people including those who have retired from the workforce. Individual membership is open to women and men throughout Ireland who are involved in any aspect of science, engineering or technology. Affiliate membership is available to students. We also have corporate members.
WITS is proud to have Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland as Patron.
This meetup gives us an opportunity to mingle and meet with other female professionals working in the IT industry. If you are interested in pursuing a career in IT, learning about new technologies, contributing to open source, or getting involved in technical workshops, then come support this group. Let's build a strong innovative community lead by women in Galway.

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.
