Women in STEM: Girl Develop It.
Earlier this year, I took a course in PHP/MySQL offered by a fellow Pratt Alum. Not only was the class interesting, but I learned about this program, Girl Develop It
. It's not restricted to women, however its mission is to encourage more women to learn programming languages and participate in the development field. As with many science and technical fields, women are thin on the ground and they are trying to make an accessible friendly environment for people to learn coding.
As someone who took a class there, I was impressed by how affordable it was, and how quickly I learned how to make stuff. In light of our newest Skill-Share initiative here at the EdLab, I thought some of you might enjoy taking a look at the course list
to further your coding skills.
