Who We Are
Coder Bee is an inclusive, community oriented coding school focusing on women and underrepresented groups in IT.
I’m Sowmya, founder of Coder Bee, If you are a woman developer like me, you have probably noticed the infamous problem of empty washrooms at workplaces.
It all started when I moved to Berlin and realised that the gender diversity ratio was disappointing. The number of women in IT in India, was much higher 30 – 45%. According to the statistics from 2015 the number of women in IT in Germany was less than 18% which is quite slopsided.
Coder Bee started as a small initiative that sprouted when a few women expressed interest in learning programming on a facebook community. I was thrilled by the enthusiasm and created a facebook group to enable those women to learn to code.
Since 2018, we have grown steadily from 45 members to more than 400 members. Ever since, I have been running bootcamps and workshops to introduce women and other minorities to programming. Though the focus is on women empowerment we are an inclusive community with people from diverse backgrounds including diversity in gender, race, age, educational backgrounds, ethnicities, nationalities etc.
CoderBee’s mission is to build and educate the diverse workforce of minority groups in tech.
I offer help with co-learning with mentors, career advice, integration and support with professional challenges. The idea is to sharpen our skills with a trusted community thereby achieving career and life goals so nobody is left behind.
I envision CoderBee being the safeplace to build long lasting meaningful connections where we learn and prosper together.
We need your help to build a network where everyone can benefit. So, if you are in IT and interested in sharing your knowledge and time with the community please sign up to – Become a Mentor.
