Girls Who Code
A Student and Alumni Network for Women in Tech
The Girls Who Code student community is a diverse one. It spans all 50 states, and encompasses middle school students all the way through college age alums (with the first cohort about to graduate from college in 2017).
In order to accommodate the different ways the girls might want to engage with each other (and with the organization), the app was based on individual conversation “loops” — pre-determined areas for girls to freely discuss CS topics, jobs and internships, and colleges, as well as their non-coding interests, in a respectful and welcoming environment. There are loops for iOS App development, College Advice, and Selfies, to name a few. “Loops,” of course, refers to a fundamental concept in computer science.
The app is an expression of Girls Who Code’s vision and mission, and at the same time, a practical and usable tool for girls who share a connection with the community and a passion for coding.
Winner of the 2017 Webby Award and People's Voice Award for Public Service and Activism, Girls Who Code Loop is available now on the Apple App Store and on Google Play.
