Frequently Asked Questions

How can I join the community?

If you want to join us, just come to our event and join our Slack community!

How can I join the events & coding sessions?

Our meetings and events are for women+ (inclusive of trans and non-binary) from all backgrounds who are learning or already know how to code, whether you are a bootcamp student or learning by yourself, a graduate looking to apply for a job in tech or already a professional developer. We use English during the meetings but because we have over 50 nationalities in TechFems, most of our coaches speak other languages too. The majority of our members have a migration background, and many are career changers: changing career into tech from sometimes completely other sectors. You will feel at home in our community! 

Visit our events page on our website to see the upcoming and past events and sign up for the next one! Before attending, make sure to read our Code of Conduct.

If you have any questions contact us.

How can I host an event?

Hosting involves making a space available, and provide drinks and snacks for the participants (depending upon your budget).

For our TechLabs event, it is important that the space has enough seats and tables, plus electricity sockets since the participants are going to be working on their laptops. The participants break up in small groups so it is ideal if the space is big enough to have around 8-10 groups of 4 to 6 women working together.

For our TechTribe it is important to have some tables and chairs for the women who want to code together. There will be a large group of women who want to network and meet new people. If there is a more informal space, like the cantina or cafeteria, that will be perfect.

For our TechTalks events on Sunday afternoons, we usually need a big space where we can have a talk, workshop, panel discussion or tutorial take place. It depends on the topic.

Before hosting us, we will visit the location to discuss details and have a look around. After the event, our team will make sure the space is tidied up and organised as it was found at the beginning of the event .

How can I join as a volunteer?

If you want to become a volunteer, just contact us and we can schedule a meeting!

Can I bring my kids to the events?

Not all places that host us allow children around. That’s why we kindly ask you to always contact us in advance if you want to bring your kid(s) to any of our events. Thank you.

What should I do if I don’t want to be in the photos?

You can send us a message beforehand, or when you arrive, just tell us and we will take care of it. If you see yourself by any chance in any photos, please just contact us and we will remove that picture from our sites.
