Coding Grace November Newsletter

NEWS & EVENTS

Welcome to this month's newsletter. Last month has been quite busy for me and Coding Grace. Although I haven't run Coding Grace workshops, we were involved with Coder Girl Hack Day, and helped contribute to a full Allies Workshop at Career Zoo. 
I was delighted to be invited to give an introduction to Python with Python Turtle at Larkin Community College (thanks, Joanne). The girls had so much fun making faces, mandalas, and lots of laughter (possibly due to many jelly sweets consumed. (See pic of the day from tweet above)
Coding Grace was involved with Coder Girl Hack Day, which happened on Sat Oct 15 celebrating International Day of the Girl and EU Code Week and kindly hosted by Dogpatch Labs. You can find lots of amazing tweets, photos via this storified collection I created to capture the essence of an amazing day.
Interview with Niambh Scullion (Coder Girl Hack Day Co-Organiser) followed by Ann O'Dea's keynote. Click on the image to play the video. You can also visit watch it here.
On the same day, I was running the allyship workshops at Career Zoo down the road at the Convention Centre, from Etsy's condense version of our recent collaboration to Unconscious Bias with Mary Carroll to EY's creating an inclusive work environment for LGTB colleagues to Imposter Syndrome with Pauline Sargent (#Digiwomen) to building confidence in networking.

AlterConf visited Dublin on Aug 6 (kindly hosted by Dogpatch Labs), and they have uploaded the videos recently. You can relive or if you were not at the conference, check them out via https://goo.gl/MeA1T9.
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.
There's lots of diversity-friendly events this month, more details further down the newsletter. If you have an event for us to include in our next newsletter, drop us an email.

Any enquiries or if you want to help, please email contact@codinggrace.com.

Thanks,
