Tech Leaders is a free mentoring programme. It is a great opportunity to work and learn with mentors for several months.
I established a Cracow branch community of successful women who share a love for technology – creating software and hardware.
The goal is to break down the barriers and promote members as specialists. Our aim is to get to know and support each other, and to show that women work in a technical world. The meetings exchange knowledge and experiences. We create different kinds of workshops and encourage women to join the technology industry.
The Power of Events
Hack4good is an international hackathon series started by Geeklist. Kraków is hosting this event together with over 50 cities world wide.
The Hack4good series focuses solely on uniting the world’s greatest expert engineers, designers, product builders, and entrepreneurs to help make the world a better place by developing applications for humanity.
I was mentoring during Cracow Culture Jam – a 1-day adventure and experiment with digital cultural resources, using methods of Design Thinking to create prototypes.
During two-day workshops I taught women designing, prototyping and coding using Ruby on Rails.
We were part of global event that connected people around the world: people in need, developers, representatives of non profit organizations, API providers and sponsors. Over 2,000 developers took part in that movement around the world. Activity in our venue was streamed online 48 hours.
WebMuses is an IT-oriented community to empower women to create technology.
We’re interested in everything connected with information technology: from coding to design. We want to encourage, inspire & share our passion.
Feel invited to join our women-friendly workshops, meetings, presentations and team coding. Positive energy both included and required.
