Are you a woman technologist on a career break, keen to get back to work?

Vapasi is a #TalkTechToHer initiative from ThoughtWorks to enable experienced women technologists who are currently on a career break and looking to resume their tech journeys. This four week bootcamp will help sharpen their programming and testing skills through hands-on sessions.

 

The last 9 batches of Vapasi tailored to Developers and Quality Analysts had 157 women returnees participate in the program. Many of them are currently on their second-career journeys, working with ThoughtWorks and other companies in India.


Our next edition of Vapasi is a technical bootcamp tailored to Quality Analysts, to be hosted in Hyderabad.
