Workshop with Czechitas: Tvořím web: PHP

<?php createWeb($czechitas->with($dixons));?>

 

Do you remember the 10 Czechitas ladies that visited our offices in October last year? These young women were fascinated by the IT world and are determined to try to change the 'IT is only for boys' viewpoint. As we promised we have cooperated together again recently. 

 

On Friday, 20th March, the public workshop – ‘Tvořím web – PHP’, took place in JIC. This time another 30 ladies wanted to be PHPretty and to learn this programming language. The girls decided to do a deep dive into web sites and to make their blogs and sites more dynamic. 

 

The main idea was to make the workshop as interactive as it is possible and our colleagues from development took the role of coaches. They provided lots of support and were very willing to help. This ensured that we could provide a really individual PHP raining approach for the girls who really appreciated this. As a result, we received positive and rapturous feedback from all 30 participants.

 

We were also able to make a big dream of our PHP Guru Andrej Farkas came true – he was the speaker and one of the trainers during the day.  ‘I was very nicely surprised by the level of enthusiasm shown by the girls when learning something new. Some of girls fought hard with the unknown concepts at the start. However, as time passed, they got used to it and things started to make sense for them. The quality of the lectures and trainers were the main reasons, of course. I have to say that such passion and excitement for learning new things is very often missing among developers. These girls seem to have no such problem. It's obvious that all the courses organized by Czechitas are very popular and that girls do want to become a part of an IT world. Just keep going.’

 

So, what's next? We are planning a third workshop, next time in Prague in November. To be PHPretty is cool and we know it.
