Vapasi is a #TalkTechToHer initiative from ThoughtWorks to enable experienced women developers who are currently on a career break and looking to re-enter the world of programming. The bootcamp, spread over four weeks will help sharpen your programming skills through hands-on sessions on object-oriented programming practices.

The last Vapasi Bootcamp was hosted in April 2018 at our Pune office with a batch of 22 shortlisted developers. 1 of them has joined ThoughtWorks as a full-time employee and 4 others have confirmed their internship with us.

Stay tuned on this page for information about the next edition of Vapasi 2018.

Since going on my career break, there isn’t a single day that I have not wanted to get back to work. It was my ex-manager who recommended the Vapasi program to me, and I definitely believe that it’s a good initiative. It’s a great platform and opportunity to network for both, the women who want to be back at work and the companies that support these women.
