An email landed in our inbox in the spring of 2020. Johanna and Charlotte, two students at IT-Högskolan, wanted to teach beginners’ courses in programming geared towards women in the summer. But they lacked the network and knowledge on how to reach their target group, and asked if we wanted to pair up with them.
This spring has left us with memorable experiences from our Pink Digital Sundays! As we welcome the summer, we might as well do a quick recap on our first big online experiment.
Well, some things have changed for the participants of this web dev course of ours due to Covid-19. The photos are from our kick off in February, since we no longer can meet up IRL. But we keep going online!
Pink Programming Sunday goes Digital! Yesterday we hosted our first Pink Programming Digital Sunday online - Pink volunteers from all of our citites put their joint effort together to organize it. The event was broadcast from The Ground in Malmö.
Hi friends! A full month has passed since I started my 100 days of code, and it’s been really educational in a lot of ways. Life has (to put it mildly) gotten rather intense for all of us, but I hope you are all doing well and keeping safe. To quote one of the greats I shall not dwell on the negative for too long for, the show must go on.
Do you often find yourself wanting to start a project or learn a new skill that you end up procrastinating over and over? Me too! (If you said no, I really can’t relate to you.)
If you’re reading this, chances are you already know what Pink Programming is all about – and I am so thankful that they have given me the opportunity to share my thoughts in writing with you. I will be using this little corner of the Pink blog to share some personal posts about my love for (and struggles with) tech and programming-related topics.
It was sure a great summer, filled with sun, swim and lots of ice cream, everything that belongs to summer time. And for us at Pink Programming, summer time also means camp time!
Everyone is seeking that larger meaning in life, and so am I! These days I’m working as a DataAnalyst for iZettle.com, an enterprise trying to empower small businesses to survive the game which giant monopolies and duopolies are ruling. Coming to iZettle has given me a strong sense of the meaning I’ve been searching for. As a proudly failed entrepreneur in a previous role, I feel like I have landed on two feet at iZettle and I feel fulfilled and strong. But this only makes up some of the meaning I am searching for. There is so much more!
