Code First: Girls

Code First: Girls (CFG) is a multi-award winning social enterprise that teaches over 2,000 women how to code for free. Over the last few years, they have delivered £2 million+ of free coding courses and helped companies to recruit better tech talent into their firms.

I’ve been involved with Code First: Girls in Sheffield from 2016 – 2018. These are all the posts I’ve written reflecting on the impact of these courses and the wider CFG community.
