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 people 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 (18+), or anyone who identifies as such in a significant way, 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 courses and events are for adults (18+.)
Please review our Code of Conduct (http://www.girldevelopit.com/codeofconduct) policy or learn more about Girl Develop It on our website (https://www.girldevelopit.com/chapters/burlington).
If you'd like to teach for us, volunteer to act as a teacher's assistant for a class, or sponsor our events and/or students, please reach out to us. At the moment, we are strongly looking to find permanent classroom and/or project night space in Chittenden County.
