Program with us from your own home! For the health and safety of our participants and volunteers, we are temporarily moving our Pink Programming Sundays online. As usual, women and transgender people of all ages and programming experience levels are welcome. Let’s not let Covid-19 stop us from learning and programming together!
We will be using the platform GoToTraining for these digital events, so as long as you have a home computer*, you can follow along. You don’t even have to download any software because you can join in right from your browser window (we recommend Chrome for the best experience).
