Conserve It Hosts Intern Day for Social Enterprise, Code Like a Girl
Conserve It is excited to be sponsoring and hosting a unique Intern Working Day for social enterprise, Code Like a Girl.
Code Like a Girl is a social enterprise providing girls and women with the confidence, tools, knowledge and support to enter, and flourish, in the world of coding. With an Internship Program that provides fully-paid, real-world experiences with leading industry partners such as Conserve It, Interns receive mentorship from a team of industry professionals as well as access to experiences and networking events such as this.
Conserve It will host more than 20 Interns for the day to discuss how Conserve It goes about developing software for IoT devices and systems, the challenges faced and where our employees have come from who work in this industry.
The full day workshop includes discussions around approaching remote working, software testing in IoT, as well as a hands-on session in the Conserve It IoT Lab.
“We’re really honoured and excited to be involved in this program”, said Richard McElhinney, Chief Product Architect at Conserve It.
“Code Like a Girl is a fantastic initiative, and the team at Conserve It are looking forward to sharing our knowledge and experience with the next generation of coders”.
Code Like a Girl – Developing software for IoT Devices, hosted by Conserve It, is being held in Melbourne on February 28th 2019.
About Code Like a Girl
Code Like a Girl is a social enterprise providing girls and women with the confidence, tools, knowledge and support to enter, and flourish, in the world of coding.
Co-Founder and CEO, Ally Watson is a backend developer by trade and has always loved working in tech. Despite her love for the field, she often experienced first-hand the isolation and barriers associated with being a woman in a male-dominated industry.
Founded in 2015, Code Like a Girl began as a way for Ally to meet other women who code. Having moved to Australia from Scotland, Ally wanted to form strong connections and female friendships so she decided to host her own event – one specifically for women in tech. She had no idea that one event would turn into many and become the humble beginnings of Code Like a Girl.
