Women Developers and Programmers! Want to learn how to code? Have a great idea? Don't be shy. Develop it. Girl Develop It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with over 40 chapters throughout the United States and Canada.
It can be intimidating for women to learn and ask questions when they are in an extreme minority. While open and welcoming, today's budding developer community is up to 91% male. There isn't a comfortable place where women can learn at their own pace, not be afraid to ask questions, and know that a Code of Conduct exists for them.
We decided it was time to provide a place where all questions are OK and everyone can learn in a supportive environment. Our woman-friendly courses focus on coding, leveraging existing technology, and having something to show for it (aka building sweet websites).
