Where do I start?

Whether you're a coding newbie or looking to enhance your skills, this article will help you embark on your coding adventure and gain tech confidence with Code First Girls! All of our courses are 100% free and take place remotely.

We suggest new students either enrol in our MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) or take our Coding Kickstarter classes.


The MOOCs are streamed online and allow anybody to tune in (which is helpful if you want to dip your toe in the coding world!). The MOOCs are also available on demand which is ideal for people with different schedules, as our classes are currently live-only. Our courses include MOOC Sprints and MOOC Challenges - we recommend beginning with a Sprint. This article explains the difference in more detail.

Coding Kickstarter

The Coding Kickstarter classes take it up a notch, lasting two hours a week for 8 weeks, and help you get started learning how to code.. These introductory classes are best for those wanting to kickstart their coding journey and will give you a solid introduction to Python and Apps, Web Development, Javascript or Data and SQL. These live sessions are taught by experienced instructors, and once complete, you will be eligible to apply to our CFGdegree programme (click for more information!).

All of our courses can be applied to via our courses page. Our MOOCs and Classes take place remotely one night a week. If you're looking for more information on what courses we offer here at CFG, we recommend reading through this article!

Please note that to be eligible for our classes and MOOCs you must identify as a woman or non-binary and be 18+  💁
