PROJECTS & EVENTS

GROW YOUR NETWORK IDEAS  SKILLS PROFILE

This page has two great parts to it. The first is all about events – ones we’ve held and those that are coming up (including project events like Hackathons). 

The second part of this page is showcasing some of the incredible ideas, solutions, and work that our CFG members showcase as part of these events. We are so proud of the talent we have as part of the community and the wide range of cool tech stuff that is born through events and projects.

When we come together we go further and faster. Meet the change makers of tech already within our community.

Almost everyone accepts the importance of mentoring, but so few of us actually have a mentoring relationship. How do you find a mentor? What does that relationship look like? And what does the outcome of mentoring lead to? Selina Pavan, a long-time friend of Code First Girls and senior tech leader at Bank of America joins us to share her own story and her personal passion for mentoring. 

MORE UPCOMING EVENTS

Code Fest 2020 was Code First Girls’ biggest event ever. More than just a conference, Code Fest 2020 was a comprehensive digital learning experience and skills exchange, providing unique opportunities to connect with inspiring leaders, innovative teas, and influential hiring experts. Throughout the event, we heard from amazing senior and trailblazing women, had a select group of CFG women engage with employers through targeted job application and interview coaching, and two major real-life data and coding challenges which have produced phenomenal results.
