So it is happening… codebar Berlin. The very first international codebar chapter!
codebar is a non-profit initiative that aims to bridge the diversity gap in the tech industry by running free regular programming workshops. The workshops are aimed at women, LGBTQ and people from underrepresented minority groups. The goal is to enable our students to learn programming in a safe and collaborative environment and expand their career opportunities.
codebar sessions run for 2 hours, in which students can choose to follow either our set tutorials, focus on a personal project or following other online coding challenge with the help of an experienced coach. We take pride in offering a 2:1 student to coach ratio so that students get the attention they deserve.
codebar’s mission is to teach programming but for this to happen I need your help. Yes you reading this blog post. I need your help spreading the codebar mission, help getting coaches on board and help getting people involved who want to learn to code. I also need sponsors, as without them codebar would not be possible. Sponsors provide us with the space, food, drinks and of course internet. So, if you work somewhere that could host a codebar then please contact us, firstname.lastname@example.org or @codebarBerlin. Or if you know someone that wants to learnt to code please tell them about us.
Our first workshop is Tuesday 30th at Wunderlist, just round the corner from Alexanderplatz. If you would like to attend as a student or coach please RSVP here.
