About this event

Women Techmakers Cyprus has been instantiated by 2 ambassadors of the global Women Techmakers community that are passionate about technology and would love to provide resources and help to the local community. The purpose of the community is to connect, empower and encourage each and every single woman in tech to understand and pursue her passion in any technology related field. How will we do that? Through inspiring stories, learn hands-on via design sprints and codelabs, meetups, mentoring, confident workshops etc.
