December 8: Women in Tech Weekly Issue 88

In Partnership with my Free PDF: Build Confidence Learning How to Code

Welcome to yet another issue of Women in Tech Weekly! 🥰

This is the first one that has been automatically created – well almost. I’ve automated submission formatting and still need to tweak the form to optimise the results. I’ll also adjust certain graphics/layouts to make the process smoother. It’s been a great learning process so far, I’ll definitely write a post about it sometime!

If you’d like to submit anything for next week’s issue, please do so using the submission form at the bottom of this post.

Gira celebrated her 4 month anniversary since she launched her initiative!

Gira says:

I launched my initiative with the help of Sarah Wells’ program called Leadership Launch, she helped me turn an idea into a full-blown initiative! I am so proud of my successes because I am 15 years old and have helped 10+ people learn the basics of coding! I hope to expand this more 🙂

Partner: my Free PDF: Build Confidence Learning How to Code

Learning how to code is a challenge and requires a lot of trial and error – which means that our confidence may suffer. So here are some exercises that will help you reflect on what you’re learning and your progress, helping you build confidence!

Resources 👩‍💻

Learn robotics through Webots (Free Open Source Software) shared by Kajal

Kajal says:

One of the challenges of learning robotics is the cost of hardware. Even with microcontrollers like Arduino and Raspberry Pi, you still have to buy motors and sensors. Coming from India, I know how the cost can add up and be a deterrent to learning robotics. A solution to this is free open source software like Webots and ROS. I create youtube videos on how to use Webots to get started with Robotics. This tutorial series is designed for beginners and doesn’t require prior knowledge of Robotics.
