What we're about

Public Group

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).

Thank you for supporting Girl Develop It on our mission to make software development easy, affordable and accessible to all women. Your contribution (http://www.girldevelopit.com/donate) helps us expand our mission to create great programs and opportunities for women learning to code.

Note: While we focus our mission and messaging to women, we're women inclusive, not women only. Men are encouraged to join us as teachers, teacher assistants, sponsors, even students!
