Andela, since it launched in Uganda in May, has admitted 4 cohorts of developers. They are now calling for applications for its 5th cohort, which is will have an all female boot camp.

Whereas this is the first all female boot camp in Uganda, Andela has already had 4 all female cohorts across Kenya and Nigeria. With over 25% female developers, Andela’s female developer ratio is far above the global average of 5.8%.

Andela says “We are committed to building tech communities that are diverse and encouraging women to venture into technology. Having an all female cohort encourages women to venture into tech as it counters the narrative that tech is a male dominated field.”

Andela seeks out exceptional people from a variety of backgrounds who are committed to unlocking their full potential and improving the world through technology.

All Ugandan women with a passion for tech and aspiring to become world-class software developers are encouraged to apply at http://bit.ly/AndelaUGCohortV.  Applications close on October 5, 2017.
