It's no secret that web development is male dominated, and that software development itself has been male dominated for the past 4 decades. Former coding bootcamp student and now Tabcorp coder Tanya Butenko is eager to break down the barriers to more female participation. She'll be running a top-of-the-pipeline program on the 9th of July, bringing in a group of other brilliant women to teach women how to code in JavaScript.

There'll be JavaScript workshops for beginners and node.JS for those who are more experienced. It'll have two workshops with breaks and chatting before and after.
