Event description

Description

According to recent statistics, 80-90% of the tech industry's work force is either white or asian. This means every other ethnic group combined has only a 10-20% reprensentation in the industry.

This needs to change.

Coders of Colour is a organisation set up to encourage and support the youth that are considering pursuing a career in the tech industry.We aim to start by running an introductory coding workshop day where teens will build a website using HTML and CSS.

You will need:

  • A laptop (if you really cannot bring a laptop, we will provide one)

  • Either a parent or parental consent

  • Thanks to our amazing sponsors, Pivotal, lunch will be provided :)

10:00 to 10:30 - Arrival, setup and icebreakers
