This is what some of the ladies had to say after the event:
Introduction to GitHub was so hands on, I do not think I will forget it any time soon. I feel like I was given a peek into the possibilities in the world of programming especially as a woman. Seeing other women do amazing tech stuff is enough motivation – Maurine
The event was like an eye opener that there exists much opportunity for upcoming software developers that we couldn’t see previously. Using Github, as an example, where we can put our code and also see what others are developing – Cynthia
Special thanks goes to:
Maye Edwin, Google Developer Lead, Moi University for ensuring we were connected to people who helped us arrange for the event.
Telisa Daughtry of FlyTechnista, who Gertrude met in New York at a dinner, for joining in via Hangouts to encourage the young ladies to keep at it. Telisa is also one of the few women I know who have been programming for over 18 years.
We look forward to what the ladies will be building next!
