Hi all!

 

Thank you to our recent sponsors Adobe, Change.org, DevBootCamp, and Mixamo - and thank you to all of you who TA at our workshops. We still have spots available at our UX workshop on July 27th, and our CSS Tools & Techniques workshop on July 24th. We’ll take a break from workshops for a few weeks after that, and then we’ll announce the next round of HTML/CSS/JS workshops.

 

Interested in journalism and coding? Check out the Knight-Mozilla Fellowship, a 10-month Fellowship where people who love to code spend their time doing open source development with a stellar news organization and a supportive Fellowship community. The Fellowship is paid, $60,000, and offers opportunities to travel and contribute to the journalism code community.

 

Interested in learning more about Google Cloud Platform development as well as helping improve Google products? Participate in a Google Cloud Platform Build Day Study! Selected participants will be invited to the campus work with Google engineers on a day-long build as a part of a User Experience Research study. Please fill out this questionnaire if you’re interested.

 

Microsoft Azure is giving away 100,000 worth of technology to non-profits, and GirlDevelopIt is one of the contenders. Vote for it here.

 

Thinking about being a web developer? Read this extensive write-up about what it actually means to be a web developer these days.

 

SheCodes is a conference on August 9th put together by WomenWhoCode, Femgineers, HackBright, and Woman’s Work, and it includes many familiar faces as speakers, including our teacher Liz Howard.

 

HackBright has announced an intensive UI/UX one-week course for the fall. They are also accepting applicants until July 25th for the “Moms in Tech” scholarship for their full multi-week immersive course.

 

And now for our regularly scheduled links!...
