Coding Workshops for Girls
She.codes holds coding workshops
for girls to learn cutting-edge topics in programming.
In our 2019 session, learn about AI and build your own smart movie recommender system. Through hands-on activities, coding contests, and projects, discover the thrill of programming.
She.codes' 2019 workshop, targeted toward students with experience in programming, will teach about artificial intelligence and machine learning, one of the most groundbreaking technologies in this age.
After an introduction to AI in the real world, students will dive into the fundamental concepts behind AI algorithms and architecture. Students will learn how to code their own movie recommendation system using an interactive Jupyter notebook.
Theory may be challenging, so it is recommended that students have a solid background in Python (functions and classes).
