ABOUT THE FILM Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRb5iel-3Ck Runtime: 1 hour, 47 minutes "Join high school-aged girls from around the world as they try to better their communities through technology and collaboration in this thrilling, heartfelt documentary. By 2017, the app market will be valued at $77 Billion. Over 80% of all these developers are male. The Technovation Challenge aims to change that by empowering girls worldwide to develop apps for an international technology competition. From rural Moldova to urban Brazil to suburban Massachusetts, CodeGirl, by Lesley Chilcott, producer of An Inconvenient Truth, follows teams of girl app developers and programmers from around the world who dream of holding their own in one of the world’s fastest-growing technology industries. The winning team gets $10K to complete app development and release their app on the market. But it’s not about the winning, it’s about what the girls who code discover along the way. Girls who code and develop app ideas for the Technovation Challenge address issues in their community and try to solve problems through the use of technology. This can include anything from waste removal, clean water, preventing impaired driving, or creating positivity in your community, these codegirls try to use the latest in technology and app development to help."

What we're about

Madison Women in Tech is a supportive community of women and gender nonbinary folks working or interested in technology, from designers to coders to recruiters to technicians. Through regular events and a digital newsletter, we empower and elevate women working in Madison’s tech scene.

Follow us on Twitter at @Madison_WiT (http://www.twitter.com/Madison_WiT), Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/wit.madison/) and sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter via http://subscribe.madisonwomen.tech , featuring community events, WiT news, volunteer opportunities and job openings.

***

This is a group by and for women gender nb folks; our events cater to them and are a safe space for them; generally, we ask that men not attend unless they are the guest of a woman or gender nb person attending.

***

Likewise, we are a child-friendly community; even when we're not set up for it specifically (which we try to do as often as possible), you're surrounded by members who understand the pressures you face as a professional parent, and would never discourage you from bringing your children to one of our events. Maybe they'll grow up to become a person in tech themselves!
