Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I learn programming?

There are a thousand different reasons why you should learn programming. First and foremost it´s fun and super creative! You can solve problems and you get the opportunity to create products like you previously only had ideas about, such as a website, app or blog.

Developers are also soughed out in the labor market and being able to program gives you a clear advantage. In addition, there are major gender differences in the developer field. We therefore think it's very important that all girls who want to test programming get the chance to do so. We want to work towards a more equal tech industry.

Many think that if you learn to programme, you will become a programmer, but programming is used in many different jobs today. You can actually work with almost anything and still have use of being able to code.

What is front-end and back-end programming?

Front-end concerns everything that happens in the browser. All that you, as a user, see and interact with. HTML is a markup language to create webpages and it mostly concerns all text. CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) is all about styling the webpage. Here it is really starting to be fun. And then there is JavaScript, a programming language, that can be used to make things move on your page and create dynamic content. Don't freak out, if you don't understand this right now, we will go through it step by step!

Back-end is what happens below the surface, for example a database that stores all the blogposts. Java, Python and SQL are examples of languages that can be used by a back-end-developer.

Why should I learn with you?

For us, this is not just about programming but about creating a safe and inspiring space where we can all always feel welcome to show up as who we are. This is an ongoing theme throughout all of our courses and events.

We are also trying to keep our prices down by collaborating with different sponsors and thus making it possible for more girls to attend our courses.

Furthermore, we, our teachers and all the other awesome people who help organize this, are extremely excited to teach you as much as we can. We constantly keep track of new technologies and update what we teach.

What courses do you have?

6-weeks HTML & CSS development course - This course we have once in the spring and once in the autumn. You will then learn HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Github and how you code in a team.

One day course (9am - 17pm) - These have focus on different parts of webdevelopment. We will have one with HTML/CSS theme and one with JavaScript theme.

Separate events and workshops - These can be anything from more relaxed after works to lectures or try coding events. Previous we have had themes like Wordpress and "Make-your-own-portfolio".

Our events usually fill up quickly so to make sure you know when the registration opens follow our facebook-account or sign up on our newsletter!

Can my company pay for my ticket?

Yes, of course!

What is HTML?

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language and is used to structure a web page and its content.

HyperText  is the method by which you move around on the web. When you click on special texts called hyperlinks it will bring you to the another page.

Markup is what HTML tags do to the text inside them. The tags give instructions to format the text in certain ways (italicised text, for example) so that the browser know how to display them.

• You can say that HTML provides a basic structure of the page, upon which CSS then can be overlaid to change its appearance.

What is CSS?

CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets. It describes how HTML elements should be displayed. For example, you can use CSS to alter the font, color or size of your websites content. You can also add animations and other decorative features.

What is JavaScript?

Javascript is used to program the behaviour of webpages. It is the third layer of standard web technologies, after HTML and CSS. Some basic building blocks of JavaScript is: data types, operators, variables, methods and functions. These concepts are standard throughout programming and you'll see them again when you explore other languages.

It is a language that enables you to create dynamically updating content, make web pages interactive, control multimedia, animate images, and a lot more!
