Are you a woman or a minority who would love to get into software development but don’t have the money or resources to learn the skills? Google has a surprise for you. According to Business Insider, they’re offering three free months of tech lessons at Code School to thousands of women and minorities across the globe — and you could be one of them.
Google confirmed something that’s been painfully obvious to everyone for a long time: there are hardly any women in software development and practically zero minorities. Hell, take a look at HBO’s Silicon Valley: the only women in it are eye-candy assistants, strippers, or sexy servers at start-up galas. If you want to buck this trend with free tech classes from Google (and possibly jump to a new tax bracket), apply using this online form. Anyone from beginners to experienced entrepreneurs are eligible, but be quick. We imagine this is an offer people will jump at.
