Frontend Learning Group for Women

WHY 🔥

I am passionate about empowering women to achieve financial independence & career fulfillment. Frontend Development is a lucrative and in-demand field with a relatively low barrier to learning. I created FLGW 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 allows most participants to understand the material without feeling too rushed or pressured. There are live office hours each week to discuss difficult parts, and our Slack community also provides regular support. FLGW is very self-directed, so you need ambition, focus & drive to be successful.
