August Canberra Girls’ Programming Network (GPN) Workshop

Dear Colleagues,

There has never been a more exciting time to be a female learning about technology!

The Canberra Girls’ Programming Network is a community for female students to learn about computer programming and technology through workshops and gives exposure to female role models across academia, government and industry.

The workshop topic is Cryptology!

The art of protecting secrets started thousands of years ago from the early Egyptians.
Cryptology is one of those ancient sciences that has endured to modern day communications.
This workshop will centre on the famous Caesar Cipher named for its creator Julius Caesar.
Join us to be code-breakers for a day!
