At Pink Programming Sundays, we meet to program and spend time together. On most events, we have free choice coding, where you can choose which programming language to use and what to work with. For those who want, we recommend tutorials and small assignments. Other Sundays, we have some workshop or activity together with our sponsors. It could be anything from robot programming and web design to truck driving.
Common to all occasions are that you don’t need any previous knowledge, that the events are totally free and that lunch is included! The only demand is that you bring your own laptop and are open to learn something new. Pink Programming Sundays are organized in both Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö about once a month. Our Sundays are very popular so make sure to sign up in time – the number of spots is limited and first come, first served is applied.
Research shows the more diverse the team, the higher the productivity, creativity and profitability. Still, only about 5 % of developers in Sweden are women. So, how can you as an employer attract the talent – and retain the competence?
Leading for Inclusion in Tech is an interactive course with hands-on tools to help companies appeal to female developers and create an inclusive workplace with a diverse workforce where employees can thrive, no matter of gender, background or age.
The course is built on research and unique experience and insights from female developers in the Pink Programming network, and developed and delivered with Teller Agency, experts on inclusive recruitment. The course combines lecture parts with interactive breakout sessions. Course leader Alexandra Antgren, member of Pink Programming and developer at Northvolt, will share her and other women’s experiences and you will get concrete tools on how to create an inclusive workplace.
Ever since the summer of 2015, we have arranged camps with the aim of teaching programming to women in an inspiring and friendly environment. At each camp, 15-20 participants gather in a cabin where we fill the days with lessons in programming, good food and excursions. In the evenings we cook dinner together, watch movies and talk well into the wee hours. We never have a boring time together!
At our camps you get the chance to deepen your knowledge. You who are a beginner get plenty of time to learn the basics, and you who are an experienced developer get plenty of time to rehearse and try new things.
