ProjectFunction came about as a result of how difficult it is for beginners to pick up web development and design. After taking part as instructors in a recent web development course aimed at encouraging more women into tech, we discovered that the resources which were provided by the organizer were either outdated or incorrect. And as minorities in tech with some years of experience, we felt quite let down by the organizers -even worse, we felt like we were letting down those we were meant to be helping.
After some further research into the organization, we realized that the reason why the resources were so bad, was because the motive was not to educate, but to encourage women into tech by making it appear easier than it is - just to be able to have the statistics to say they "helped" women get into the tech industry. We felt like we had to do something; hence ProjectFunction was born. A small start up which aims to educate and encourage minorities to get involved in the tech industry.
