Girls in Tech Bootcamps range from beginner to intermediate-level, hands-on 2-5 day workshops teaching coding, design, and leadership skills for entrepreneurs and those in the startup space. Our participants leave bootcamps with practical takeaways that they can immediately apply to both their professional workplace as well as towards their personal career development. Carefully researched and curated trending topics present in the current tech landscape are incorporated into our bootcamp curriculum. Relevant overriding topics built into our curriculum ranging from socioeconomics and education to machine learning, are applied as challenge statements and case studies for interactive team projects and live simulations.

Our wide array of participants have included aspiring entrepreneurs who attended our Startup Breakthroughs Bootcamp and gained additional practical knowledge necessary for them to confidently launch their startups. Our CODE G Bootcamps have provided foundational training for career transitioners, helping participants develop practical skills to pursue new endeavors in the software engineering field. Girls in Tech Bootcamps are essential vehicles for women from diverse age ranges, educational, and professional backgrounds to gain fundamental tools which they can take and apply to design their careers.

CODE G

Girls in Tech’s CODE G bootcamps are two-day programming language courses, which teach young professionals beginner-level coding and programming. They range from Levels 1-3 (beginner, intermediate, advanced). By the time participants complete the course, they will be confidently coding and ready to take on their next programming challenge.

This bootcamp includes opportunities for individual and group projects, hands-on demos, and lectures. Participants can expect to build fully functional web-apps, websites, collect data, and use development tools to complete their projects.

Design Thinking

Creative problem solving and design thinking skills are in popular demand in today’s workforce. Girls in Tech’s Design Thinking Bootcamp is a beginner-level, 2-3 day, hands-on workshop that teaches participants how to methodically innovate.

Taught by seasoned subject matter experts, participants are empowered to explore how human-centered design can help create detailed solutions for layered problems in day-to-day life. These skills can be applied to building products or as an active member of the workplace.

Startup Breakthroughs

Startup Breakthroughs participants can expect to dive deep into the culture and mindset of an entrepreneur, communication, pitching, startup fundamentals (what questions need to be addressed for an investor), leadership and team, customer-centric products and services, competition, business models, go-to-market strategies, startup finances, and how to raise money.

Product Development

The Product Development Bootcamp is a series of workshops that empower people to shift the way they think, work, and innovate throughout the product development process. Each of the four workshops is composed of tools and techniques that leverage the power of human-centered design thinking, psychology, lean processes, personal training, and play to help people and project teams see problems as opportunities so that they can imagine and implement more effective solutions, more efficiently. Depending on the needs of your organization, the four workshops can be embraced as a 5-day experience or individual sessions.

Leadership Development

Do you need to influence or engage? How do Brands and Leaders connect in a busy, distracted world? Learn the principles of great communication – on stage, in the boardroom and even a corridor conversation.

This is an intensive workshop where participants will actively design, develop and deliver a compelling 2-3min pitch. Learn about the psychology of influence, the craft of speaking (tone, volume, speed, pitch, position and dynamic) and the mechanics of impact (slide, prop and body language use).

Career Development

Girls in Tech’s immersive and interactive Career Development Bootcamp features a variety of individual and group exercises, in-class roundtables and lectures designed to get participants prepared and excited to jump head-first into the tech workforce!

In this bootcamp, participants will learn a methodology for finding the perfect career — not only what they are good at but also, a job they love doing. People are always more productive when they work at a company, with a product, and with a team that truly inspires them. In this environment, employees are able to grow in their professional as well as their personal lives.
