Women Who Code is the largest and most active community of engineers dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers. We envision a world where women are representative as technical executives, founders, VCs, board members, and software engineers. Our programs are designed to get you there.
Who should join?
Our community is for professional women and allies of women in technology careers, including software engineers, developers, UX/UI designers, data scientists and more. Current and aspiring coders are welcome. Bring your laptop and a friend!
What to expect?
Our events offer free hands on technical events, study groups, panel discussions, lightning talks, and keynotes featuring influential tech industry experts, innovators, and investors. We help you build the skills you need to raise your professional profile and achieve greater career success.
WWCode relies on donations to support this catalytic movement. Funding directly impacts our ability to deliver programs and expand to more cities, ensuring that even more women have the opportunity to excel in tech careers.

Also, we have a #job-opportunities channel in Slack for job postings and job seekers!
Code of Conduct:
WWCode is an inclusive community, dedicated to providing an empowering experience for everyone who participates in or supports our community, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, socioeconomic status, caste, creed, political affiliation, or preferred programming language(s). Our events are intended to inspire women to excel in technology careers, and anyone who is there for this purpose is welcome. We do not tolerate harassment of members in any form.
WWCode events are open to all allies of women in tech, regardless of gender. However, we ask that any male attendees be especially mindful of following our Code of Conduct mentioned above, which strictly prohibits any form of sexual or other harassment, including messaging our members or physically approaching them in a non-professional or romantic manner. Anyone found violating our Code of Conduct will be permanently banned from all our events and platforms.
Please be mindful of events that have high popularity and consider giving up your spot to give the opportunity to attend to a female/non-binary participant.
This depends. Some of our hosts have a strict security policy and those who are not on the list or do not provide their full name (as it appears on their ID) will not be allowed inside the venue. However, we frequently have extra spots available for drop ins from the waitlist and if security allows it, you are welcome to attend. If you decide to come to an event without being on the RSVP 'Yes' list, please be aware that there is a possibility that you will be denied entry.
