puts it, they are an organization "devoted to showing the world that black girls can code, and do so much more. By reaching out to the community through workshops and after school programs, BlackGirlsCode introduces computer coding lessons to young girls from underrepresented communities in programming languages such as Scratch or Ruby on Rails."
They've held workshops in places like Atlanta and Memphis, and I think they are past due for a visit (hopefully the first among regular) to New Orleans. I was lucky enough to attend a similar program called RailsGirls
over the weekend, and I've become really interested in the potential of demographically-focused training programs like this.
Help me show BlackGirlsCode that we want them in New Orleans! Support and share this idea, and let's see if we can get them down ASAP.
