Fellow Selma Ndi (Cameroon, Spring 2022) successfully ran two coding bootcamps this year for her startup, DataGirl Technologies. DataGirl Technologies is an ICT initiative that aims to introduce university girls to coding as a pipeline to career opportunities. This year’s bootcamps consisted of 12 weeks of full-time web development training followed by three-month internships. The first cohort graduated 10 full-stack developers in July, with four participants having already secured gainful employment. This October, they graduated their second batch of 15 full-stack web developers. “DataGirl leaves no one behind by focusing on equal opportunity in technology and using an individualized approach to teaching,” Selma explains. DataGirl Technologies’ impact was recently highlighted in a Technext news story this summer, most notably for training over 3,000 girls since inception.
