Who are we?

Afro Fem Coders

Afro Fem Coders aims to create a space that gives women a chance to learn programming in a safe and encouraging environment. By empowering young sub-saharan African women to code, we are shaping leaders who will innovate and positively impact people’s lives. Students in our program benefit from coding classes,guest speaker keynotes, mentorship from women pursuing engineering careers in the silicon valley, college application guidance, hackathons and more. We approach the classes with a project-based teaching style. Our community is currently made up of 5000+ students across 20+ African countries. Our work has been covered by major media companies such as BBC and CBS among others.

Web Development

This track includes an introduction to HTML, CSS, Javascript, and React. Through different projects, students get hands-on experience needed to build websites. The class introduces them to the web development process starting from building websites to deploying the websites

Python Programming

This class introduces the students to fundamentals of programming in Python. The students get to build applications after learning the language. The students also come up with a final project of their own using the skills. This class is purely project based. learned in the class.

Block based Programming

This class introduces students to block based programming in scratch. Block based programming is a good way to introduce anyone to coding. This class enables students to build games and projects that are visually appealing.

Data Science

This class enables students to gain the experience needed to inspect, clean, and transform data to reveal useful information. The machine learning aspect introduces common machine learning algorithms, which students will implement using popular Python libraries, to achieve predictive tasks

Technical Interview Preparation

Students get the experience with technical interview questions and the interviewing process in this class. Aside from working on technical questions, we shall have guest speakers share their experience interviewing for different tech roles and what they learned.

Design Innovation

This is an Introduction to Human-Centered-Design with a focus on understanding the design process and using tools such as Figma to design products. This class enables women who want to pursue design careers to get the hands-on experience required for UI/UX research roles.
