Details

This is a shared area to support beginners, returners and people wanting to learn more about tech or looking to return or upskill, with multiple areas and workshops. We are looking for sponsor companies to support us with pizzas and drinks in return for an opportunity to present and communicate either as an engagement or a recruitment piece. Women’s Tech Hub runs a no recruiter and a strict social media policy that you can find in our Code of Conduct.

Workshop Wednesday 11th September 2019 will house:

~ Ceri Newton - Agile in a (pistachio) nutshell: a brief introduction to Agile ways of working
Ceri's been coaching individuals, teams and businesses for well over a decade, and with her background in teaching and psychology, has been referred to more than once as the "Mary Poppins of Agile". She will be running this hands-on session for anyone who wants to understand a little more about Agile - what it is, how it works and who it's for. You'll come out feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready to take on your next Agile project!

~ JavaScript Self-Led Study Group
Calling all those who are interested in learning or improving their JavaScript skills in a relaxed, collaborative environment.

If you’re new to JavaScript, we’ll give you a quick introduction into what you can do with the language, then guide you through the basics by working through small projects together. Our aim is to help pave the way to creating your first website. You will learn skills you’ll need on the job and create a personal portfolio that will make interviews easier.

While the study group’s focus is to help those who are less experienced, we’d be happy to accept anyone who is interested in offering support. Additionally, if you’re looking to build on your existing JavaScript skills, we’d be happy to help on a range of subjects, such as: React.js, Vue.js, Node.js, npm, MongoDB, functional style programming and more.

~ Toumetis: Real-life problem solving with data (1st of 2 sessions)
Description: The target is to provide a gentle introduction to the area of DS. This hands-on tutorial will demonstrate the problem-solving process of getting data, cleaning, visualising, exploring and assessing the answers.
We will work with Python, and participants will be provided all commands, thus no previous knowledge is required. At the end of the session, participants will have analysed a dataset, learnt some Python pandas commands, and experienced a typical small data science project ‘journey’.

~ Women Tech Founders - Essentials of a business plan in raising bank funding – Session 2
For women tech founders in Bristol & SW England - a place to meet and be inspired. We’ll cover the ‘Essentials of Raising Bank Funding’. Or we can cover any of the topics below or go off-piste if you’d find a commercial sounding-board helpful.
