What is Coder Dojo?
We hacked together a cool hangout that puts the real power of the internet and technology in the hands of the Irish youth. The true power of the net comes from coding, designing and having fun. CoderDojo is a place where you can learn from others and share what you are doing! Each week we have a hands on session with technologies like HTML5, App Development, PHP or Python. See https://coderdojo.com/.
What is CodingGrace?
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 diverse instructors from the industry. See codinggrace.com for more details. See https://codinggrace.com/.
By focusing on girls, Teen-Turn aims to influence course decision-making processes, inform participants on education and career options, and combat stereotypes by strategically changing how girls identify with technology career environments through summer work placement.
As learning in the presence of female role models has been shown to impact girls’ self-image and confidence–encouraging them to see themselves in new ways and stimulate new interests–female company representatives will engage in the Teen-Turnship as well, perpetuating interest and enthusiasm long after the workday ends.
TOG is a hackerspace based in the centre of Dublin, Ireland. It is a shared space where members have a place to be creative and work on their projects in an environment that is both inspiring and supportive of both new and old technologies. See http://www.tog.ie/
Coder Girl Hack Day would be nothing without our supporters, thanks guys and gals!
