Why Attend This Event?

Today, software forms the backbone of our interconnected and digital world. This includes everything from smart machines, to our communication systems to the cars we drive. Coding is the ability to read and write in a language that a computer can understand so that you can instruct a computer how to perform complex tasks. Learning to code can lead to increased digital confidence, a different way of thinking about problems, and the ability to understand and use technology to help develop creative solutions in almost any discipline. Go CODE Girl will educate, inspire, and equip girls with the digital skills, confidence, and resources needed to pursue an education in technology, computing, and engineering. No previous programming experience is necessary.
