"She Codes closes the chasm between two worlds that for most women remains still unbridgeable and offers a no-excuses format
for creative women to better understand how to turn their ideas and designs into a digital format."

“Women are dramatically under-represented across the tech industry - something we believe is important to address. That's
why we're proud to host She Codes for their first course at Second Home Lisboa and help offer an opportunity
for women in Lisbon to learn more about coding and develop their skills.”
Lucy Crook, General Manager @ Second Home Lisboa
“An amazing way to start changing the world. I believe programs like this help closing the gender gap in the tech world and
demystify that code is such a hard thing to learn and it can be fun!”
