TechLadies is a community for women in Asia to connect, learn, and advance as programmers in the tech industry.
Technology is meant to be accessible by all. TechLadies is a community-led initiative for women in Asia to connect, learn, and advance as programmers in the tech industry. On this site, you can find tech communities for women in Southeast Asia, or learn how to code by taking part in our 10-week part-time coding bootcamp.
The TechLadies Bootcamp is a 10-week part-time accelerated learning program designed to help women with some basic programming background become a professional programmer. You learn by creating products for non-profit organizations, under the guidance of industry experts. 33% of the TechLadies Bootcamp graduates eventually found software-related jobs and internships.
This program is only available in Singapore and costs SGD500 to join. Full scholarships are provided for people with financial difficulties. We welcome women from all walks of life and nationalities to apply.Learn More
The Asian Film Archive's (AFA) mission is to preserve, share and explore the film heritage of Asia. We created a film submission app so that film makers can easily submit their films for archiving and AFA don't need to rely on paper and email!

Inspired to use technology for good? Want to teach more women how to code? Help us bring TechLadies to your city! Email Elisha at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
We run workshops and bootcamps and we’re always looking for coaches to help teach more ladies how to code! We’re pretty language agnostic so we’re open for anyone who wants to help!
Event coordinators create amazing TechLadies events! TechLadies events are attended by 60 - 200 folks (mainly women) who are interested or are already learning how to code. For many of these women, our events are the only place where they interact with other women in tech. As such, we take pride in putting up a good event! We need volunteers to secure venue sponsorship, book catering services, and coordinate event manpower.
Behind every successful event is a bunch of awesome event helpers! Event helpers are people who make things happen - from welcoming attendees, coordinating venue logistics, documenting the event with photos and social media updates, and generally making sure the event happen.
People look to the TechLadies blog for information on programming, our activities and discover stories of women who picked up programming after college. We need writers to create these amazing content to help more women pick up programming!
Depending on the content, we may need writers to have basic programming knowledge.
Editors own the different content categories on the TechLadies blog. You will be researching what content we should publish on the blog, guide writers on how the articles should be written in, and decide on the publishing schedule. There’s a lot to learn and practice in this role!
Depending on the category, we may need editors to have basic programming knowledge.
A lot of people have come together to TechLadies happen; it would be a pity if nobody know about it! We want more women to know about TechLadies, that they have a community that they can go to learn programming, to discuss challenges they have and to celebrate their wins with!
You would help us plan and execute media campaigns to increase awareness of TechLadies.
TechLadies is a community-run initiative and we want to reach more women. To do that, we need to tap onto the various schemes (Skillsfuture etc) and grants provided by the Singapore government! Help sustain and grow TechLadies by volunteering to research, create the necessary documents, and apply for grants.
