    What is a Technical Study Group?

    Women Who Code Technical Study Groups are events where women can come together and help each other learn and understand a specific programming language, technology, or anything related to coding or engineering.

    We welcome developers of all levels and encourage those with more experience to help out those that are just starting. There's always at least one mentor or leader present to help you with best practices or to guide you through if you are stuck with a nasty problem! :)

    Thanks to Microsoft, most ordinary computer users have gotten used to getting around with a graphical windows environment. But a lot of our development and operations work still depend on the old reliable *command line*. This TechUp Session introduces you to the basics of how to use the Linux command line. It's not a complete look into it, but it's just enough for you to not get lost when you're there.

    *Who is it for?*
    - You are a developer, specially someone that plans to do backend/systems development.
    - You plan to use git.
    - You want to go into DevOps.
    - You want to use any of the DevOps tools for software development.
    - You have started using Linux for the first time but still gets lost with commands.

    *What will you learn?*
    - The command line interface (also called The Shell)
    - Shell tools
    - Shell scripting
    - Data wrangling
    - A tiny tiny bit of vim

    *What do you need?*
    - Your own computer
    - A Linux environment. This may be any of the following:
    - Windows 10 installed with WSL2 (preferred if you're using the latest version of Windows 10 Pro/Home)
    - A Linux virtual machine
    - An actual installation of Linux on your computer
    - If you can boot Ubuntu from a USB drive, you're okay.

    ***

    NOTE: The type of Linux you use here will not be important. But if you're a complete beginner to Linux, I would suggest you get Ubuntu.

    ***

    NOTE: There will be an online install party the night before the TechUp (April 16, Friday - 6:30pm - 8:30pm).
    You'll need to use your phone instead of your computer to join the install party.

  • HER 4.0 MAIN EVENT | Remotely Together (ONLINE)

    Online event

    HER 4.0 will be happening online and in a very different format than before. We decided to go with the theme 'Remotely Together' because since the start of pandemic, we never really had a chance to gather in an in-person event and we've learned that many of us had challenges whether it's career-related, health-related, work-life-balance-related and more. As a community, this is what we can do to help by bringing everyone closer together (even though we are all remote), supporting one another and helping everyone to succeed.

    If you want to join, RSVP in this event and answer this form: http://bit.ly/HER-remotely-together-form

    What is HER?
    HER is Women Who Code Manila’s flagship event for international women’s month every March. This is a gathering of all women in tech in the Philippines to inspire one another and help one another succeed in our tech careers. It focuses mainly on helping our member’s soft skills since all year-round, our community events are focus on technical skills (study groups, hackathons, techup sessions, conferences and more).

    What's different this time?
    1. We have set up a discord server (which will be our official server for this event).
    2. We will be hosting mini-events within the month at the discord server. You can volunteer to host a mini event if you like (instruction is in discord).
    3. We will end women's month with our flagship Her 4.0 event, gathering every women in tech all over the Philippines and/or bringing every Pinay in tech all over the world.
