Digital skills for women


Phillemon Sikhosana

Coding refers to creating computer programming code. In simple English, computers have their own language, called Machine Code which tells them what to do. I’m certain it still doesn’t make a lot of sense to many of you.

Each number or letter is telling the computer to change something in its memory. This could be a number or word, or a little part of a picture or video. By themselves, computers don’t know how to do anything. It is the job of the programmer to give them instructions. The City of Johannesburg in partnership with Alexandra 8th avenue library invited women from Alexandra to celebrate women’s month with learning about opportunities brought by the digital era and acquiring some of the digital skills that are of need lately.

City of Joburg collaborated with Google SA to introduce digital skills (Web designing, digital marketing, coding, etc). Jeff Nyoka the elearning manager for library services in the city of Joburg said the mandate of the workshop is to celebrate women while also imparting (4IR) fourth industrial revolution skills “We always try to introduce youth to these digital skills especially in the 4IR era, where there are new things people don’t know about, like robotics and how to design a website just to name a few.” Said Nyoka.

The city has different classrooms in different regions for young people to go and learn about the digital skills which have taken the world by storm explained Nyoka.

The (Information communication Technology) ICT sector is male dominated and the other mandate of this workshop was to celebrate women’s influence, ability and contribution in the sector.


  1. My coder is trying to persuade me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number
    of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into
    it? Any help would be really appreciated! 0mniartist asmr

  4. It’s the best time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this put up and if I may I wish to recommend you some attention-grabbing things or tips. Perhaps you can write subsequent articles relating to this article. I wish to read more things about it!

  5. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
