What we're about

Come explore tech with us. We are committed increasing the influence that women have in building the technologies that shape our culture and change our world.

Countless studies show the benefits of approaching problems with diverse teams, yet women are grossly underrepresented in tech departments, on software development teams, in AI, in technical graphic design, and computer science classrooms.

The more diversity we have in tech, the more inclusive the technologies that shape our culture will become.

Orlando Lady Developers welcomes everyone -- we mean that -- everyone. That includes women, men, trans-women, non-binary people, trans-men, and those who may be questioning their gender.

We encourage men working as developers, designers, or in tech-related fields to join us. Let's work together to bring more women and under-represented folk into technology innovation and software development and empower them to develop next-generation technologies.

#server-side-development

Let's get together to work through the exercises and tasks of a shared Coursera class.

Each session will be a chance for us to meet each other, talk about our career goals, and discuss how we'll work through the course together.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO PAY TO TAKE THIS COURSE IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE STUDY GROUP

As of 8/5/21 we are working on the Modern Application Development with Node.js on AWS Specialization. https://www.coursera.org/specializations/aws-nodejs-serverless-development

We're taking the classes in order and started on AWS Cloud Technical Essentials. https://www.coursera.org/learn/aws-cloud-technical-essentials?specialization=aws-nodejs-serverless-development

This is a specialization set at the beginner level, but you can make it intermediate by following the scripting prompts/examples.

We'll aim to do a week of work per week, so the certification should take us about 12 weeks.
