What is GirlsCodemonth?
GirlsCodeMonth is a “3 in 1” workshop, hackathon and conference session for girls. Our goal is to introduce more girls to the field of CS, and provide a welcoming environment for participants of any experience level to learn more and build a project. The Workshop/Hackathon portion will teach basic Java, HTML/CSS and Python, and the Conference provides an opportunity to network with others.
