In October of 2019, Code Like a Girl launched our first all-female IT Bootcamp in partnership with Coder Academy. And we’re proud to announce that on Saturday 8 August that cohort will be graduating with a Diploma of IT.
All Code/IRL graduates are comfortable working in HTML, CSS, Ruby on Rails, Node.JS, Express.JS and React.JS.
Each of our soon-to-be grads have an inspiring story about their journey to code and their ambitions for the next chapter in their career.
If your organisation could support our graduates with an internship or entry-level role, they’d be keen to hear from you. All contact details are available in their CVs.
