"I feel much more confident about developing my own website one day, and one big step closer to the prospect of achieving this!"
Trishita is a student in Manchester who attended Code & Create Manchester by Code First: Girls. This intensive weekend course taught students the basics of web development, and by the end of the class all the girls had made their own website.
"Right from the start (which involved ice-breaker games that got everyone laughing hysterically) the entire weekend course was an absolute delight – a truly amazing experience to say the least!
Sitting in a room full of bright and enthusiastic girls, all set to learn something new and exciting, I was initially a bit apprehensive as to whether I would be able to keep pace with the programme and grasp everything at once. But, Nick’s humour, Tom’s charisma, and the rest of the volunteers’ approachable and helpful attitudes quickly won everyone over.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much coding we covered and how fast we were able to learn, grasp formulas and manoeuvre our way through what initially seemed like complicated code.
I was overjoyed that my knowledge of coding is at an almost-professional level already, and I cannot thank Code First: girls enough for making it possible for so many of us. I feel much more confident about developing my own website one day, and one big step closer to the prospect of achieving this.
I’m sure I speak for all who participated in the Code & Create weekend when I say that Code First: Girls rocks and Nick is awesome!
A big shout out to Madeleine and team - Thank you Code First: Girls!"
