Curated for a technical audience compromised of but not limited to women, transgender and non binary friends. We'll start promptly at 5:15 and end by 6:30, we welcome kiddos too.

    PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Coding Study Night

    Please RSVP on Eventbrite

    AppNexus engineering is delighted to welcome all lovers of React, JavaScript and Python to a study night brought to you by PDXWIT. We’d love to help you with your code in any way/shape/form that would best elevate your technical prowess. Bring personal or work related projects, anything goes. We are happy to set up remote options, and will offer a large classroom setting as well as small conference rooms for everyone’s comfort level. If there is a programming language you’d like help with that you do not see listed here, please contact [email protected] and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

    There is no agenda for this event as it will follow an open house format.

    PDXWIT Purpose:

    PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.
