🌻Summer is well and truly here, and it's also #PrideMonth!🏳️‍🌈
After much excitement watching Eurovision last month (and slight disappointment that Daði Freyr didn't win), we are smack in the middle of summer officially! Even events and festivals are mostly still virtual, things are looking up as more people get vaccinated and maybe at the end of the year we will see each other again in person.
We have a big announcement! Coding Grace welcomes GameCraft into our collective family. GameCraft runs community game jams and game-related events. Coding Grace has collaborated with GameCraft in the past. GameCraft will remain independent and will be business as usual when in-person events come back and it's safe to run game jams again.
Read the official announcement
We are still working on the following that we mentioned in last few newsletters:- 
  • WIP: Tackle interviews (especially technical ones) process by companies by giving support to both interviewers and those who are applying for jobs. There must be a better way! 💡
  • Ongoing: Continue to make events and content inclusive and diverse by encouraging others to participate and support them on this journey. 🤝
👉 Don't forget that EuroPython tickets are on sale, and EuroPython are providing Financial Aid this year.
This month, check out activities for International Women in Engineering on June 23!

"We want to give coding superpowers 🦸‍♀️ to girls around the world so that they can grow up to be inventors, entrepreneurs, and change-makers thriving in our digital society - using technology to shape the future and solve problems that they are passionate about."

What do you want us to run?
Last year, we wanted to try and make Coding Grace sustainable, our largest expense is our accountant each year. We are happy to continue using Open Collective and we are open to donations from individuals and corporates. We are not-for-profit and it's wholly volunteer-based running it. 
Support us on Open Collective

💪 I've been keeping a live list of virtual tech events with focus on Irish-hosted events. It's been very, very time consuming, and that also includes 100s of link checking per newsletter each month. 😓
💡 Therefore I've finally made a site that curates these events, and you can find all of April's events at this site. The site is an 11ty site (Nunjucks and TailwindCSS) and deployed via netlify. There's nothing fancy about it, it lists tech events and diversity in tech events around Ireland and Northern Ireland. 
🌈 If you want to add an event, you can submit a PR or or an issue on github, Or you can email me at
