About Code Coven
Code Coven aims to be intrepidly daring, providing women with the skills and confidence needed to thrive in the games industry.
Our part-time courses are flexible and designed to empower women. They are built around online learning sessions and applied development.
We’re going to…
We’re offering courses in:

During the course you’ll learn:
- How to negotiate our place in the industry
- Communication strategies
- Digital persona management
- And more…
You’ll be part of a exclusive team who will:
- Plan and commit to sprints together
- Apply the knowledge gained from class to development
- Impact at least two game development sprints
- Review and adapt as part of our post mortem review
As part of the team, we ask that you are online for the core hours established by your group. We ask that you…
- Engage with your class, ask questions, help each other out.
- Keep everything discussed in the class, confidential. This is a safe space and you are a critical part of that.
- Commit to the hours agreed upon to complete your tasks on the project.
Our students come from diverse and varied backgrounds, from women who are trying to break into the industry to those wanting to grow. Our courses are designed to be flexible so that you can commit to a schedule that works for you and your life commitments. There are no borders; our students participate from wherever they are in the world.

You are tired of going to programmers to find solutions to ‘little problems’, you want to be able to get in there and tool around with finding technical solutions for to make your designs come to life. You want to learn in an environment where you have accountability and are part of a team.
You’re looking to find solutions to push technical pipelines and add to the creative vision of games. You need the technical know-how, to do it. You want to be able to apply what you learn immediately so that it sticks.
