Coding Grace are a group of developers based in Ireland who love to code and do other geeky and not necessarily crafty activities. Some of us code full-time, or just for fun (or both). We have people who are part of other technical user groups such as Dublin ALT.NET, GameCraft It, Python Ireland, Ruby Ireland and more…
Coding Grace provides female/diversity-friendly workshops and events in an environment for developers and aspiring developers mentored by majority female instructors.
Where many events tend to have more males than females, they aim to encourage many females to participate in their workshops and learn to code and more. They also encourage any females who want to mentor technical material to help out, it’s not that scary after all.
It doesn’t matter if people are learning or mentoring, gaining confidence to ask questions, helping others, which results in everyone learning from each other gives females in this field the encouragement to further their careers, attend technical conferences, or even give a technical talk at one.
They aim to provide a support network for people from all backgrounds and hope our outreach will help bring those who are interested in code development together and learn from one another.
