Women are an important and growing part of the IT world. Progress is committed to supporting women who wish to learn more about tech - come join us at a pair of women-only coding workshops at DevReach 2018.

Computer programming and coding skills continue to be in high demand in the job market, and as the tech industry booms, more and more women are entering this field. According to many statistics women make up just 20% of the IT workforce today, but this number is slowly starting to increase.

Progress is committed to helping all women who are interested in learning to code and entering the industry. Two free programming workshops designed for women will be held during the upcoming DevReach 2018 conference.

Both workshops, run by ngGirls and Vue Vixens, are taking place as part of Central and Eastern Europe’s premier conference for developers, DevReach, which is organized by Progress.

  • When: November 12th 2018
  • Where: At the Progress office, 54B Tsarigradsko shose Blvd, Sofia, Bulgaria (opposite The Mall)
  • For whom: Women with little or no experience in programming, who are interested in learning how to create websites and mobile applications
  • Requirements: The only requirements for participants are to be motivated about programming and to bring a laptop!

The Workshops

The ngGirls workshop runs from 9 am to 12 pm. It is targeted towards women who want to learn how to develop using Angular, a Google technology for developing applications. Progress experts Jen Peleva, Stanimira Vlaeva and Vasil Chimev will be speakers at the workshop. Mentors will be also helping the participants at ngGirls. Register here.

The Vue Vixens workshop will be held between 1 pm and 4 pm. It is aimed at women interested in learning how to create websites and mobile applications with Vue.js, the popular JavaScript technology.
