What we're about

So you've gone down the career path seemingly set out for you after completing your studies and now just a few years in, you're already looking for greener pastures.

Or maybe you've worked with several developers in the past and always wondered whether you could have done the work if you had the know-how.

Either way, this group was formed to help people like you, who have been considering a career in tech and are looking to understand more about the industry.

Join us at our scheduled events as we look to bring you valuable insights from within the tech industry. They range from:

Fireside Chats - Where we sit down with experienced developers who will share their personal experiences working in the industry.

Coding Workshops - Starter classes that will help you in taking that first step in learning how to code and beyond.

Technical skills sessions - Run through the gauntlet of whiteboarding and thought processing just like how employers assess their candidates

Coding 105, UI/UX Design Workshop

Link visible for attendees

Our UI/UX Design Workshop is back by popular demand!

"Design is thinking made visible." - Saul Bass

Developing a website is often assumed to purely involve writing massive amounts of code to get them to function. But before all of that goes in, how do developers come up with how the website should look and operate?

As we continue our series of workshops, we now turn to User Interface and User Experience design, more commonly abbreviated as UI/UX design. It's a crucial element involved in the development of a website, as it ensures that design considerations are incorporated into the website, making it appealing and easy to use.Want to know more about what goes into this design process? You are welcome to join us as we will cover what are UI and UX, work on a sample design for a website together and understand what it takes to create a human-centered website.
