What we're about

We believe there is plenty of room in the gender gap in tech to make a difference. After all it's called a gap for a reason. It's because of this, we organise Girl Code meetups and try to raise more awareness for the gender gap in code: meetups for coders and everyone interested in code (yes everyone, men are welcome too).

When you attend our meetups you agree we can take pictures of you and these pictures may be shared on all Girl Code's and the organizer's websites and social media channels publicly. Also when we showcase Girl Code at other events or in the media we can choose to publish such a picture.
