Through our Codess community, we regularly host networking events and provide mentorship opportunities as you navigate your career. While this program is focused on the needs of women in technology, all are welcome to attend and participate. 

  • What are we about?

    Codess is a community for female coders initiated by Microsoft. Codess was established to explore ways to promote gender diversity in the engineering field.

  • Our mission

    Codess aims to inspire female coders and help them achieve their professional goals. Through networking events, mentoring and sharing advice and experiences, we hope to offer a forum to women unlike any other.

  • Where are we?

    Codess delivers a series of worldwide invite-only virtual events and workshops from academia through to the executive level. With participants across Eastern and Western Europe, Asia and the US, Codess is continuously growing and servicing the international engineering communities.

  • Codess virtual events

    We host Codess events around the world and cater to each specific location, but you should expect a fun experience no matter which event you attend. Past events have included speakers from expert engineers to technical thought-leaders, hackathons and workshops, networking opportunities, discussions on the latest industry news and more.

    Your invitation will have specific details for your event.
