Girls Develop It

A Meetup designed around the idea of teaching women to code. 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).

East Bay Women Web Development Classes

This is a group for women to learn Web Development in the East Bay. Why should San Francisco have all the fun? The goal is to increase representation of women in technology with a focus on developing marketable skills that lead to real jobs. Spaces are needed to hold classes and volunteer instructors welcome.


Women Who Code (SF)

We are women who code: in any framework | any level of experience | any size of company | or just code for fun!

We meet weekly for technical study groups and monthly for larger format events including tech talks, career trainings and hack nights.

Current and aspiring coders are welcome. Bring your laptop and a friend!

CodeChix BayArea

CodeChix has existed since 2009 and were the first group of our kind. We have several types of events where we meet face-to-face and get to know each other:

  1. Hacking sessions - We bring our ideas, projects and code together either as teams or individually and help/learn from each other. We get together and chat about our projects, ideas, life, work etc. and develop friendships and learn about each others backgrounds.
  2. Tech Talks - We invite coders and technical leads to talk to us about their cool projects and share their knowledge with us. These are usually on a weekday evening and last approximately 2.5 hours
  3. Workshops - Join us for 2 to 5 hours on a weekend to learn about a state-of-the-art tool or programming language to improve your skills. Workshops are taught by volunteer industry professionals and CodeChix members. They are hands-on and require you to bring your laptops.
