GDI SF Newsletter: May 3rd Hackathons, Lots and Lots of Local Meetups

Hi all -


We’re in the middle of our spring frontend series, and look forward to seeing some of you at the workshops over the next few weeks. We’ll likely be holding our next series in June, if you’re thinking of joining us for the next one.

Need help convincing your employer to reimburse you for GDI workshops? Check out this PDF with 9 reasons why they should. We can provide a certificate of completion if that helps.


A big thank you to O’Reilly for recently raising thousands of dollars for the GirlDevelopIt organization at Strata conference, as that will help all of the GDI chapters grow.


Hack Reactor is looking for volunteer mentors to support their program that teaches high schoolers in the Tenderloin the basics of coding. This requires minimal programming experience but is a once a week commitment of 2hrs for 4 weeks starting in April. Please contact [address removed] for more information.


Hackbright Academy has a few courses coming up, with discounts for GDI students:

Sat & Sun, Apr 5-6: Machine Learning Course for Developers (50% off: GDISF)
