LizzLoves Girl Develop It February 3, 2011

Did you know that women only make up nine percent of the people who are breaking into the technology development world? Why is that? I, for one, know several badass tech girls who have the savvy and know-how to change the game if they wanted to.

This must have been what Sara Chipps and Vanessa Hurst were thinking when the two tech divas created Girl Develop It, an organization that focuses on providing a safe and nurturing space for women to learn about web development (building websites). From basic HTML and CSS to Javascript and Ruby on Rails, Girl Develop It offers a rich variety of classes for ladies who strive to be code mavens.

So, if you are a chica who’s interested in diving into some coding and getting friendly with the building blocks of websites, go check out the girl-power tech movement, Girl Develop It!
