We are all too familiar with the diversity problem in the tech industry. Being vocal on issues is important, but to make a difference we must also act. In October, I decided to start Codebar as an attempt to offer free weekly coding workshops to women, LGBT and other underrepresented minorities with the help of the community.
Through my personal experiences and struggles as a developer, I've learned just how important communities and the support they offer are. Things are easier when someone is sitting next to us offering a helping hand or just encouraging us to continue.The talk focuses on Codebar, what this is all about, the vision, and what you can do to help make tech a better and more welcome place.
