Frontend Learning Group for Women

WHY 🔥

I am passionate about empowering women to achieve financial independence & career fulfillment. Frontend Web 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.

WHAT ❓

FLGW has two offerings:
- A Learning Community where our members learn frontend development together; runs continually.
- An 8-week-long Frontend Team Project for early-career developers; the next project starts Feb or Mar 2023.


HOW ⚙️

Learning Community
- No prior coding knowledge is necessary
- Members study HTML, CSS, Javascript and React on Scrimba.com.
- There is no deadline, so you can learn and understand the material without feeling rushed or pressured.
- Arit holds regular office hours on Zoom to discuss difficult concepts, and our Slack community also provides support.
- The Learning Community is self-directed, so you need ambition, focus & drive to make reasonable progress.
Frontend Team Project
- Prior frontend knowledge is necessary
- Team members learn critical technical communication & collaboration skills, as they build a complex React app.
- Team members manage their own tickets, project board, stand-ups, retrospectives, and sprint planning.
