Girl Develop It Co-Founder Provides Keys To The Coding Kingdom

9 Oct

Not many female role models existed three years ago when Vanessa Hurst and Sara Chipps founded Girl Develop It, which aims to empower women by giving them a safe place to learn about technology.

\”We wanted to make a place where it was OK to ask questions,\” Hurst recalls. \”Low cost classes, really accessible and no judgment.\”

Girl Develop It started as a Meetup group operating from a downtown Manhattan co-working space. Today it\’s in 16 cities and more than 5,000 women have gone through classes in HTML, Javascript, PHP, Python and more.
