During the last weekend of June, programming workshops called girls.js will take place in Poznań! This event is specifically aimed at women who want to dive into the basics of the JavaScript programming language and get new skills in the field of technology.
Is it worth joining? The answer is definitely yes!

Why initiatives for women?

Initiatives like girls.js are of great importance for gender equality and increasing women's representation in the technology industry. They create a space where women can develop their skills, gain confidence, and inspire each other. At girls.js, we believe that every woman has the potential to succeed in technology, which is why we support and motivate participants at every stage of their journey.
