Code & Coffee: Hacking Confidence
Stop sitting on the sidelines instead of going after what you want! Getting passed over again and again for recognition or promotion just because you're scared of putting yourself out there isn't how you should be living your life. Put yourself out there! Go after what you want! Be more confident! You can do it! Contrary to popular belief, confidence is not something that people are "born with". It is a learned trait that is super easy to portray with a few minor adjustments. Learn how to fake it till you make it through a series of lifehacks. Be your own cheerleader and help yourself take the risks that will improve your life. Brush off the adverse. Become the badass you are inside. Over time attendees will find themselves becoming more confident, taking more chances, reaching their full potential, and finally, learning how to sit at the table, in both their personal and professional lives. Join us and guest speaker, Frisbee coach and player Izzi Bikun, who is also a senior developer for Kroger, discuss how she hacks confidence, whether she's in front of her computer or on the court. Bring your curiosity, your questions and yourself - settle in with a cup of coffee and enjoy chatting about hacking confidence! Code & Coffee serves as a supplement to class curriculum for existing students and as an Open House for prospective students. Come chat & code with Girl Develop It Cincy's team on Monday, October 29th anytime between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm. We encourage you to bring a laptop & work on a project! You can come to discuss material from classes, work on side projects, or chat about coding questions in general. Don't have a project yet? We're happy to show you some good places to get started and work with you on it. You're welcome even if you're not ready to discuss our monthly theme! Have interest in Girl Develop It Cincinnati but not currently enrolled in a course? You're welcome to join us to learn more, and ask questions. We'd love to meet you. We hope to see you there! Note: this is not a GDI course, just an informal discussion & working group and is open to all. Girl Develop It welcomes all genders and identities to our events. All attendees are expected to abide by the Girl Develop It Code of Conduct (
