Frontend Learning Group for Women

WHY

I am passionate about empowering women to achieve career fulfillment & financial independence. Frontend Development is a lucrative and in-demand field with a relatively low barrier to learning. I created this opportunity for women to learn frontend dev in an encouraging, low-pressure setting.


HOW

We shall learn HTML, CSS, Javascript, React and other frontend-related competencies. The program's pace will allow most participants to understand the material without feeling too rushed or pressured. We will have weekly live office hours to discuss difficult parts, and our Slack community will also offer regular support. Our program is very self-directed, so you need ambition, focus & drive to be successful.


WHO

Our program is for women anywhere in the world. We strongly encourage Black women, women living in Africa, or mothers to apply.


WHEN

We are running a cohort right now, and have not planned the dates for the next cohort. Please join our waitlist to get updates.


COST

The program is FREE! But there are a limited number of slots.


REQUIRED

A reliable Laptop and a strong Internet Connection. Please DO NOT apply for this program if you do not have these two things.


Sincere THANKS to the following companies for their generous support of our program! 💛

Program Goals

  • Get comfortable with frontend software development, one of Tech's most lucrative fields.

  • Enjoy an ultra-supportive community and regular group mentoring, without undue pressure or common imposter-syndrome triggers.

  • Build concrete technical skills that can form the foundation for a successful coding career.

  • Build discipline and critical communication & networking skills.

Program Expectations

  • Devote at least 12-16 hours/week for studying. This equates to a minimum of 2 hours a day, if you study 6 days a week.

  • Attend office hours each week; even if you do not need help, show up to support your cohort.

  • Participate in our Slack Community and abide by its Code Of Conduct at all times.

  • Share any struggles or obstacles that threaten your progress with Arit, so that she can strategize with you.


APPLICATION PROCESS

  • All applicants automatically join the FLGW Prep Group in our Slack community and take introductory courses in HTML, CSS and Javascript. No previous experience is necessary.

  • Next, the Prep Group takes a comprehensive exam that tests what they learned. The exam has 2 parts: a timed online quiz and a project - build a simple website according to provided requirements.

  • Those who pass the exam may have a short video interview with Arit before we make a decision.

  • We will inform those who are accepted on Slack. Those who are not accepted are welcome to reapply to a future cohort.
