“Learn to ask for things. You will constantly be figuring out how to acquire customers, investors, mentors, advisors, staff, and so on. Be concise, relevant, and brave.” -  Angie Chang, Hackbright Academy

Spring is here...

This month started with us partnering with #weAREhere crew and brought folks from all our organisations (Coding Grace, #Digiwomen, Ireland Girl Geek Dinner, PyLadies Dublin and Women Who Code Dublin) together to kick of 2017 and chuck the January blues out the window. It was a fantastic nice and so many amazing people came along, chatted the night away with yummy cocktails/mocktails in hand at The Liquor Rooms.

There's still tickets for Kats Conf (Fri Feb 17 - Sat Feb 18). Workshops are on Friday and the conference is on Saturday. What's awesome besides the conference content is that they have Diversity ticket for €40.
We will also be running an Allyship at Kats Conf 2 on
Fri Feb 17 (18:30), and there are still tickets left. 
It's FREE and you can register here.
If you can't make it to the Feb 17 Allyship workshop, Career Zoo will be running a free Allies workshop track on Sat Mar 11 at The Dublin Convention Centre. Details are not up yet, but I can confirm that there will be Unconscious Bias workshop and Imposter Syndrome Workshop. More details will be available via their site.
Here's some links of interest that I pinned for this month. Do let me know if you want me to include a link to share with folks.
Any enquiries or if you want to help, please email contact@codinggrace.com.

Thanks,
