Twice recently Riviera Partners was able to host Women Who Code’s iOS Build-an-App Workshops at our San Francisco headquarters. iOS engineers Michele Titolo, Stephanie Shupe, and Erin Parker lead these free educational workshops for women every Thursday. The event started with iOS Lead Engineer at Circa, Ashley Nelson-Hornstein, giving an inspiring talk about what led her to become a developer including the bumps in the road that almost led her down a different path. Following the talk the women split into pairs to work on tutorials or work independently on their own projects.
Women Who Code is an organization dedicated to educating and inspiring women to pursue and excel in technology careers. Founded in late 2011, the organization has grown to over 4000 members strong. We are known for our free weekly technical study groups and larger monthly events including tech talks, hack nights, and career trainings. More than 70 top tech companies including Square, Twitter, Github, Heroku, Yelp, and many more have sponsored events for the popular and growing organization.
Riviera is proud to sponsor Women Who Code and the effort supports our mission to back organizations working to increase the number of engineers and specifically underrepresented groups. This goal has also led us to work with great organizations like Code2040 and Level Playing Field Institute.
