CODE G Level II, is a free, in-person, intermediate-level bootcamp that teaches programming to girls and women over 5 days. Our mission? To reverse the gender imbalance in technology through education and empowerment.

Girls in Tech, in partnership with Python Charmers, teaches two intermediate-level courses: web development and data science.

The Web Development Bootcamp will teach modern best practices for creating maintainable codebases and will be offered multiple times a year. Participants will receive immediate career advancement skills by learning about the essentials of web development in Python. Taught by subject matter experts and designed for intermediate level programmers, Level II Web Development, covers everything from templating to handling databases, creating RESTful web APIs, and maintainable, and scalable code. You’ll walk away with marketable skills in a popular and powerful web technology stack.

After CODE G Level II Web Development, you could create a web-based company or start contributing immediately to an existing web development team.

The Data Science Bootcamp will teach machine learning, predictive analytics, and data visualization. After finishing the program, participants will have sharpened their data science skills that will directly affect their professional development.
