Code Excursion is an initiative where 15 women will meet once a week while following an online developer course. The focus of Code Excursion is to learn together in a helpfulpassionate and including community

What will you learn? 

You will follow an online-course designed for the complete beginner, yet it covers some of the most exciting and relevant topics in the industry. The online course is not our own, but an already established course that we think is the absolutely best beginner course out there. We combine the online-course with workshops, team exercises and live lectures.

Throughout the 3 months you will learn:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Bootstrap
  • How to use Github in your projects
  • How to make real web applications
  • Build your own portfolio website 

The goal is that the group will continue to learn and grow as developers long after the course ends. 

What else will you get?

  • Online course 
  • Community
  • Fika 
  • Cheat sheets
  • Web hosting and domain for 1 year
  • Workshops


WHY WHEN WHERE AND PRICE?  

Why  
This initiative was created because we felt there was a lack of web development courses available for us who want to learn together with another group of girls and does not have the possibility to make it a full time obligation. 

When
The last day for registration is the 31st of August. We will let you know if you have a spot in the group the 2nd of September. The course and weekly meetings will start at the 27th of September and we will keep meeting every Thursday at 17.30-20 till the 13th of December.

Where
We will meet at our beloved co-working space Knackeriet in Gamla Stan, Svartmangatan 9.  

 
How 
We will meet once every week on Thursdays between 17.30-20.00. We will also have a slack channel and facebook-group were we help each other throughout the rest of the week. 

It´s not  traditional classroom setting. We do have guest lectures and team-exercises but most of the time you work on a course online where you build projects and code, code, code. We are there to support you, but you are the one doing the hard work! :) 

Also, all participants are a part to making this work :) If a participant have an idea of an event or project for the group they are very welcome to make it real! Or if someone feel like they are missing something, just go ahead and fix it. We will help you :) 

Price
Regular price: 3250kr
Student or unemployed: 1950kr

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Time Will It Take?

This will not be a full-time course but rather something you do on your free-time. Some of you will be full-time students and other will have regular jobs. Therefore, outside the weekly meetings you might have to put in around 3 hours during the rest of the week. Sometimes a bit more and sometimes a bit less. 

If you get so hooked on it that you can't stop (happened to me), you can of course learn faster and just be a bit ahead of the rest of the group (great thing with online courses).

I Already Know a Bit Of Coding Before, Is This Still For Me Or Only For Complete Beginners?

Still for you! If you have done coding before you might have an easier time in the beginning of the course and might not take as much time, but there is still  more to learn. It´s only a good thing if we are all on different levels of mastery so we can share our knowledge with each other. Of course it depends on how much you know but send us a message and we can talk more if you aren´t sure.
