Makers x Girls In Tech: How to set goals and stick to them

27 May 2020

How do you stay on track with your coding during lockdown? Makers and Girls in Tech are here to help.

So you’ve started learning to code? Congratulations! You’ve made a great choice. Learning a new skill is exciting but challenging – throw in a pandemic and it’s easy to see how you can lose focus.

In a changing world, we need to change our approach to learning. Maybe the coding meet-up you attend is on hiatus or your mentor is unavailable. Looks like it’s time to set your own goals but were should you begin?

In this jam-packed online event, we’ll meet experts from Makers coding bootcamp and Girls in Tech to discuss how to set and stick to measurable goals to help you accelerate your coding skills during lockdown – and cut yourself some slack if you’re struggling.

We’ll learn:

  • How to set achievable goals
  • Why it’s ok that you can’t focus and how to get back on track
  • Tips and tricks on setting yourself up for success
  • Different types of goals
  • How to track your goals
  • How Girls in Tech and Makers can help you succeed


The event will take place via zoom so make sure you have it installed before the event. Download it for free here. You’ll be emailed the link to join on the day.


  • Meet the panel
  • Panel discussion led by our curator
  • Q&A – Have your say. Do you have a goal setting tip or a question for the panel? We want to hear from you!
