The recent forth annual “Women in Technology survey” highlighted that the average number of women in technology teams is still only 14%. Being aware of this gender diversity issue Questers is for the second consecutive year supporting a “Rails Girls” event in Sofia
The programme is aiming at opening up technology and making it more approachable for girls and women. Rails Girls provide support through events, workshops and web resources. The weekend event is free and open to all enthusiastic girls and women. The participants will learn sketching, prototyping, basic programming and get introduced to the world of technology. Rails Girls want to empower girls to build the capacity and acquire the tools to access sustainable and rewarding careers in the technology sector.
