Having recently (and justifiably) been fussed at for ignoring my blog, I thought it was time to pop by and explain what’s been keeping me so busy.
I’m delighted to announce that Naomi Ceder and I (alongside some exceptional sponsors and partners) will be running a one day workshop and hackday combo aimed at the transgender community in London on March 28th. We’re hoping to add an install party and social for the evening of Friday the 27th.
We’re looking forward to welcoming a host of transgender participants and allies but are especially eager to welcome those who will be working with code for the first time through the event. We’re running a smaller event, with a maximum of 50 attendees to better provide mentorship for those new to programming. While we’ve aimed to make this as welcoming as possible for code newbies, folks of all skill levels are welcome.
We’re polishing up a Code of Conduct and schedule and look forward to meeting participants and mentors on March 28th at the GoCardless office in central London. Many thanks to our sponsors, GitHub and GoCardless who have been incredibly warm and supportive.
Full details about the event are at trans-code.org and tickets are available via EventBrite. You can follow Trans*Code on Twitter at @trans_code or tweet about us with the hashtag trans_code. We’re also on Lanyrd. We’re just all over the place.
