Code of Conduct
We’re keen to make sure that our events are great for everyone, and so we have a code of conduct that we ask all attendees to follow. You can find this on our code of conduct page.
Other venues and cool meetups
Manchester Girl Geeks provide a meeting place for girls and women who are interested in technology – but the tech community in Manchester has much more to offer than that!
We closely work with some of the groups and events below, have co-organised events, or just hang out at their meetings sometimes, ask questions, and steal their food. If something sounds interesting – please do not hesitate to go and check it our yourself! We actively promote integration of girls and women into the tech & science community.
- MadLab – Manchester Digital Laboratory: The hosts of many Girl Geeks events, hub of Manchester’s geek community, and run by lovely people. Check out their busy events calendar and pop round for a cup of tea!
- SpacePortX: SpacePortX is a coworking space for tech startups, creatives & developers including a community space catering for a diverse range of meetups.
- CodeUp Manchester: CodeUp Manchester is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month they provide a workspace for people with no programming skills to come and learn the basics, with mentors available to answer your questions and help you on your way.
- HACMan – Hac Manchester: Despite the name, HACMan is a group that’s open for everyone. If you’re into soldering irons, electrical circuits and general craziness, you’re definitely in the right place.
- GeekUp: A trans-regional monthly meeting for professional techies (software devs, security people, general geeks…) – there’s talks and beer. The mailing list is busy and packed with knowledgeable people, and the job board is very popular, too!
- FabLab Manchester: A workshop in the city centre equipped with a laser cutter, CNC machine, vinyl cutter and other tools for free use. You will most likely spot someone from HACMan there
