on 26 April 2012, the Montréal Girl Geek chapter celebrated International Girls in ICT Day by offering a PHP code language class.
And what a resounding success! 85+ women packed the house at Centre St. Pierre and spent 3 hours with Anna Filina and our amazing volunteer TAs to get a little up close and personal with PHP. Everyone brought their own A-game, and some even brought their spouses and teenagers!
Anna took us all through functions, variables, expressions, arrays and had us concatenating in no time! Her patience and geek humour helped an overwhelming majority of those who had never coded before get through their first exercises. It wasn’t easy for all, but watching everyone in the room persevere was inspiring for all of us.
Montreal Girl Geeks is an offshoot of the worldwide Girl Geek Dinners, started by Sarah Blow. Our community makes tech (high and low), skills (soft and hard) and networking (contacts and friends) accessible to women of all age groups and backgrounds
