Your Commitment

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

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.

Your Questions. Our Answers.

Are there any prerequisites?

Prerequisites vary from course to course. Our initial offerings are for intermediate developers, who have had experience coding on projects.

Are only women allowed to attend the courses?

“… in 2008 the Equality and Human Rights Commission estimated that, at the current rate, it would take 200 years to achieve equal representation in parliament (interestingly, this is only slightly less than the 212 years it would take for a snail to crawl the Great Wall of China).¹

Yes. These courses are for women only.

How much does the course cost?

We’re running our test groups at a reduced price. If you’d like to be a part of these groups, please reach out to us. We’d love to hear from you.

What is the time commitment?

The time commitment varies from course to course. As we form these courses, we anticipate that the minimum requirement would be five hours per week over 10 weeks.

Are there any penalties for being absent for core hours?

We want you to get the most out of this course, and achieve your goals.

In order to do that, we will have an element of accountability. Apart from being able to support your fellow coven colleagues, we will refund 10% of the course cost for over 95% attendance.

Any education requirements to enrol the program?

There are no education requirements, however we do ask that you are over 18 and fulfill the requirements for the course you are applying to.

Who will be teaching the courses?

Our teaching line-up and guest speakers will be announced in early 2019!

Are all courses online, or will there be in person sessions?

Our pilot classes will be remote, online only. Look for onsite classes later on in the year!

Are the courses in real time? Do I have to commit to a specific time to attend?

The courses are made up of class hours and development hours. While we will have the classes recorded and available for review during the course, we recommend that you participate in the live class. Your ‘core hours’ will be focused on your development hours, where you can negotiate with your pod on a time block that works for all of you to achieve your work.

What companies are you partnered with?

Partners and companies will be announced in early 2019!

What happens when I have finished a course? Do you have a network of studios/developers that I can get in contact with?

You will receive a credit on a game upon completion, that you can add to your portfolio/git. We will also endaevor to support your career through our alumni group, and our agency.
