Details

There are two large areas for coworking/peer supported learning, and smaller meeting rooms for talks or targeted group projects.

The overall theme will be about collaborations and its mainly for mixed groups but some may be women only as its a WTHub initiative and we are aware that women often learn better in women only environments.

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 (other than an internal sponsor recruiter as noted above) and a strict social media policy which you can find in our Code of Conduct.

Workshop Wednesday 4th December 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.

~ Meet&Speak
