GDI Boulder One Year Birthday Bash!

Let's celebrate all of our incredible achievements over the last year with a party!

In one year we've grown to over 500 members, taught hundreds of gals (and guys!) to code, and hosted more than 30 classes and workshops.

Join us in thanking our teachers, volunteers, sponsors, and students. We wouldn't be here without support from the wonderful community in Boulder.

We'll also announce our plans for expansion into the Fort Collins and Denver communities.

We have some amazing stuff planned for year two and can't wait to share it with everyone!

COMPLIMENTARY DRINKS
We will have a limited number of complimentary drink tickets for those of our members who are over 21. First come, first serve. Don't forget to bring your ID to prove it, and tip your bartenders accordingly.

TASTY TREATS
What goes great with a complimentary drink? A free tasty treat of course! We can’t have our first birthday party without a little bit of cake.

GDI RAFFLE
We will have raffle tickets available for purchase for a chance to win some great prizes!

• Class vouchers to use for any 8hr GDI class
• Some coveted, limited edition, GDI swag
• Great gifts from our amazing sponsors
• Lots of other goodies. We can’t give away all the secrets!

Did we mention it's on the roof of the Absinthe House!? The Absinthe House is generously allowing us to take over the roof yet again in celebration of GDI.

Men are welcome to attend this and any GDI Boulder event. We recognize that men are also an important part of bridging the gender gap in technology.

Thank you to our sponsors for helping make this event possible.

    Great celebration event. Big Shout-Out, to Kate and Cara Jo, for all their leadership efforts over the past year! You both are appreciated.

    Liked the styling sunglasses. And, it was good to get caught up w/a few awesome tech ladies I don't see often too.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
