Lovelace and Cupcakes
11 October 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join us at our office in Finsbury square for an evening full of fun, code, cupcakes and a big pat on the back to all the women in STEM.
The event will feature a “code for cupcakes” challenge where participants will learn regular expressions from scratch while earning cupcakes for each correct answer.
Regular expressions, also known as “regex”, allow you to extract information from text and are super useful in everything from Microsoft Word to all major programming languages!
No previous experience is necessary, just bring your laptops, and you will walk out a regex deity, full of sugary goodness and possibly an extra dress size. Ah, the things we do for knowledge!… 🙂
We will also host a panel discussion with our current graduates and female software engineers who will be happy to answer questions around the topics of career and what it’s like to work in the industry.
For those who would like to continue chatting, there is a nice pub next door.
If you are a woman or a non-binary person studying STEM subjects and considering a career in the tech industry, we would love to see you there.
The seats are limited and to secure yours, please sign up early.
Drinks and nibbles will be provided!
This independent event is part of Ada Lovelace Day, a worldwide celebration of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
