Visiola Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and mentors bright but disadvantaged African girls, has announced applications for a female-only coding program are now open.
Called the “Programming for Beginners workshop“, the program is aimed at encouraging more girls to pursue technical careers by empowering them with vital knowledge to facilitate their success.
The three-day coding workshop will see the participants learn computer programming using Python programming language and web design. They will be able to hand-craft their own websites, become career coders and enable them to start their own technology business.
The program will hold at Enspire Incubator in Maitama, Abuja from Friday, March 31 – Sunday, April 2, 2017. Applications are open until March 22, 2017. The applicants are expected to take an Aptitude Test at 9:00 a.m. on March 25, 2016.
