What we're about
Want to learn how to code? Have a great idea? Don't be shy. Develop it.
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 and not be afraid to ask "stupid questions." We decided it was time to provide a place where all questions are OK and everyone can learn in a supportive environment. Our courses focus on coding, leveraging existing technology, and having something to show for it (aka building sweet websites). Our vision is to create a network of empowered women who feel confident in their abilities to code and build web and mobile applications. By teaching women across the country from diverse backgrounds to learn software development, we can help women improve their careers, gain confidence in their everyday lives and change the world.
