At Ledgy, we really like ♥️ doing web engineering. And we want to spread the word and make more people discover the joy of designing processes, turning them into instructions for machines, and building an intuitive interface for the user.

However, as of today, female web engineers are still in the minority and we want to change this. Why? Because it’s more fun to work in a diverse team, and it is a topic we value and care about.

We want to give more women the opportunity to dive into the art of web engineering, teaching them the tools and concepts to turn abstract ideas and processes into beautiful pictures of code and user interfaces.
