“I loved being part of Code Excursion in St. Gallen these past months. It’s a great community of women who motivate me to start learning to code, helped me with any problems along the way and made my Saturday mornings full of interesting conversations, self-development and of course great coffee. I can totally recommend it to anyone wanting to start coding while enjoying great company with other inspiring women!.”
