What we're about

Code Of Conduct (https://bit.ly/loc-coc)

Do you code? Do you work with people who code? Are you searching for a similar bunch of people to discuss code and tech with?

You’ve come to the right place! We meet regularly to hear talks about experiences, share lessons learnt and, of course, develop our code-fu in the process.

Everyone is welcome at our events though they are focused toward women-identifying folk. We abide by our code of conduct (above) to maintain a friendly and inclusive environment. No recruiters please.

Code with us on Wednesdays! We practice TDD and code in Ensembles


What if I don’t code?

Our topics range from product management, to data science to full stack development and all the things in between. We also want to help get you contributing to open source, blogging and speaking!

Get On With It! Bring Your Own Project with optional social chat

For many of us, the COVID situation means life's still not back to normal.
Whatever your intentions were during lockdown, if you now find yourself with a pile of unfinished or unstarted projects that you want to get through, look no further.

We've been running these free weekly events on Zoom and Slack since April 2020.

Members have fed back that they get a much-needed productivity boost because, in coming to the session, they make sure they dedicate time to their projects. Read more here: https://suze.dev/blog/get-on-with-it/.

If there's stuff you want to get started, finished or make progress on, but are struggling for motivation, join us! We'll get together to share what we're doing, cheer each other on and generally support each other to kick-start some momentum.

Here are some examples of what people have worked on in previous sessions:

+ Writing blog posts
+ Learning how to build an Android app
+ Preparing for a talk
+ Decluttering
+ Building a website in Django
+ Putting up shelving
+ Sewing and knitting
+ IoT projects with Raspberry Pi and Arduino
+ Online tutorials
+ Portfolio projects - big and small!

The session takes place on Zoom and the structure is as follows:

*** Optional: 3.30pm: Social chat (not work chat 😜). If you want to give the social a miss, join the call at 4pm. ***

4.00pm: Welcome from Ladies of Code.

4.05pm: Tell us what you want to work on today. Type it in the chat or switch on your video camera and talk about it :)
