This week saw the one year anniversary of CodeFirst: Girls so we felt it only right to have a party! Our sponsors, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, very kindly invited us to celebrate in style, on their roof terrace.
With drinks flowing, sunny weather and beautiful views over London, it made for the perfect evening.
The celebration kicked off with talks from our Founder Alice Bentinck, and Christopher Dean, Head of FX, Emerging Markets and Europe Technology at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. We were also treated to talks from two of our 25 Ones to Watch, Mirium Keshani and Amelia Humpfress who both shared inspiring words and gave us their advice on breaking into to the Tech scene.
Whilst a celebration was certainly in order, the event also proved to be a great opportunity for the girls to network and discuss ideas. After 1 year of events, courses and hackathons, it's so exciting to see a community of like-minded girls, develop.
Thank you again to Bank of America Merrill Lynch for putting on such a fantastic event. With our Summer Plans well underway, CodeFirst:Girls are now looking forward to the next academic year, where we have some exciting plans for expansion. With new courses and events in the works, Year 2 is set to be an exciting one!
