Want to learn how to code? Have a great idea? Don't be shy. Develop it! 

Girl Develop It is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing affordable and accessible technology classes for women in a judgement-free environment. 

Whether you want to advance your own knowledge of technology for your current job, or are looking to transition into a more tech-minded job, we're here to help get you the skills you need!

Courses we offer on a rotating basis:

• Intro to HTML / CSS

• Intro to Responsive Web Design

• Intro to HTML5 and CSS3

• Intro to Javascript

• Intro to Sass

• Intro to Web Servers with Node.JS

• Intro to the Command Line

• Intro to Git and Github


"I'm a guy. Can I come?"
Absolutely! We welcome anybody who wants to learn technology skills, all we ask is that you adhere to our Code of Conduct.

"Do you teach kids? / Can I bring my kids?"
Our organization is not equipped to teach anybody under the age of 18. As such, we do not offer kids classes. We cannot teach students under the age of 18, even with a guardian present. Check out the Girls Empowerment Network or ChickTech for curriculum for children.

"Why do you charge for your classes?"
Our instructors are all professionals at the top of their field, and we pay them for their time. Teaching a class, prepping material, slides, and resources is a time-consuming task. For those reasons, we pay our instructors and your class fee ensures our instructors are paid for their time.

"I don't see any upcoming classes"
That likely means we're taking a quick break between "course tracks." Subscribe to this meetup to be alerted when a new class is added.

"I have a hackathon / event that your members will really like. Can you help promote it?"
Unless we have first hand experience with your event and we are able to attest that your event will be friendly towards women or people just getting started in tech, we cannot promote your event.
