Code Excursion is a female tech community where women learn programming and about new technologies. The focus of Code Excursion is to learn in a helpful, passionate and including community with a bunch of cheerful, curious and supporting girls who start the journey of becoming a web developer together.
I am a student in Stockholm with a big passion for personal development, entrepreneurship and nature. Besides that, camping, hiking and biking makes my day :) I discovered coding when our startup suddenly stood without a developer and to my surprise I'm hooked. I value relations high and always try my best to see challenging situations as empowering.
I am a creative, cheerful and natureloving person who loves to learn something new every day. I am currently participating in a Front End Web Developer course by Google & Udacity and starting Code Excursion Zurich. In 2017, I started coding on my own and I realised quite quickly that I would learn so much faster if I had a bunch of supporting women around me.
I am an industrial engineer who loves to work where people, tech & design meet. As an IT-consultant, I got interested in UX but to understand the whole process of developing digital products and services, I wanted to learn how to program. I like learning, so I am taking astronomy - and interaction design classes. Also, I love skiing, curling, surfing and dogs!
As a physics student and artificial intelligence enthusiast, I love staying on top of the latest technologies. That is why I currently work in a AI project in Zurich and will start a master in machine learning in September 2018. I learnt some coding languages in school and enjoy being active, surfing and practising yoga so it was only natual I co-founded Code Excursion Switzerland
"Code Excursion isn't just another coding course. It's more of a community where you get to meet other motivated and curious girls, learn to code together, help each other out if you get stuck somewhere."
"Code Excursion was an AMAZING experience! Always such a welcoming and supporting atmosphere - no pressure, no judgement. You get to be yourself and learn at your own pace. It was great that we met on a regular basis. Very motivating in itself, but it was always something I looked forward to towards the end of a busy week."
"I got a deeper understanding of programming as whole, pretty secure with basic front-end, some backend. Last not least, is the friendships that i hope to continue with."
"I loved it, was really a highlight of my week and felt so blessed to be a part of it. Sometimes it feel like there wasn't enough time, sometimes it felt like I was too tired :-D but it was great having the flexiblity to be there and to meet other inspiring women. "
