Wendy Woo – 5 star Amazing talks and learning June has managed to get some awesome people in to give talks and advise and training.
Grace Owolade – 5 star MiT has launched my understanding and knowledge around digital technology, business and coding - into vertical trajectory that has been both exhilarating and inspiring. Perfect timing for the beginning of my Business start up. Love the M&S Digital talks & Coding sessions with Rob & Adam - MiT is so good it has to continue so it can inspire more mums. Thank you June for tireless work and for being genuinely welcoming and inclusive. It been a thoroughly enjoyable journey with a really cool group like-minded mums (plus dads)
Rashmi Sirdeshpande – 5 star Mums in Tech is a brilliant baby-friendly coding school that makes learning to code accessible for mums (and dads). I love that it's so hands-on and packed full of fantastic speaker and mentor sessions. It's not just slide decks and book knowledge - it's about rolling your sleeves up and getting to grips with the code. I've met so many wonderful people through this programme and the extra support outside the "classroom" has been phenomenal. Thank you so much, June, for pulling this together! We need more stuff like this!
Sophie Duwat – 5 star I joined this group right at the beginning to learn some of the technical basics of coding. It's been really great so far to start understanding how everything fits together and to get the basic terminology around coding.
It's been so wonderful to meet brilliant women at different stages of their parenthood and business ideas/development.
Sara Tateno – 5 star June has done a fantastic job of organising a first programme that covers a broad range of topics relevant to mums looking to learn coding or start up their own tech business. It can be extremely daunting for mums to get started and this is an invaluable opportunity to meet top mentors in the industry and other like-minded people. The professional on-site nannies make the sessions accessible and give you both the space to concentrate and peace of mind! Initiatives like this make all the difference. Keep up the good work!
