Resources and recap from the first SG Geek Girls HTML/CSS study group

    .. and just like that, we’ve come to the end of our second workshop, this time on HTML and CSS! Thank you to all the amazing coaches and ladies who participated. We are truly impressed by the hard work and effort. 🙂 For the benefit of those who are keen to learn as well, here’s a quick recap of what we’ve covered and where to go next!   The Plan – we chose to follow with an online syllabus and try a study group model this time around, mainly because we know that web design resources are all out there for you to find, but you just need to have to know what and where to search. It’s also more flexible because we all learn at different speeds and easier to follow for those who get bored of w3c schools.. Thank you Nicole for introducing this video course to us, this is the link to the syllabus that we followed – http://learncss.tutsplus.com/. The idea is to watch 30 videos in 30 days, each …

Join the Geek Squad

We’ve had three really wonderful meetups so far. And it’s been an exciting journey getting to know the incredible women here in the local tech community.   At first, we had no idea what and whom to expect for our meetups, or whether anyone would turn up at all. But you did. And we’re so glad we did it. We’re so glad to have had your support.   Some of you have asked the purpose of this community. And it’s a simple answer.   It can be pretty intimidating for women to learn and ask questions when they are in an extreme minority. While open and welcoming, today’s tech scene is still largely male dominated. If we can empower more females with the confidence in their technological and entrepreneurial capabilities, we can begin to change this landscape.   In short, we want to make it fun and interesting for women to learn about technology / startups / all sorts of crazy geeky things. We’ve got exciting plans up ahead, but we need your help to …

The first ever Singapore Geek Girls event — girls, guys, and geeks galore

  This is a edited version of the original blogpost by Zane Kripe, a PhD student at the Leiden University Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology. Zane is currently researching geek culture in South East Asia (Singapore, Indonesia) and explores what it means to be a geek in the region.       On 7th January, I had a wonderful opportunity to take part in the first Singapore Geek Girls meetup organized by Joyce Huang and Mingfei Yan. Being a girl myself I am very interested in what it means to be a geek girl in Singapore and I was extremely lucky to arrive in Singapore right on time for it. I believe it was two months ago that the idea of the group was born and it apparently addresses a hot spot here in Singapore, as more than 30 people gathered in the cozy Group Therapy Coffee on a Saturday afternoon. It wasn’t a girls-only event and we had six guys who seemed to feel rather comfortable amongst dozens of cheerful and excited …
