Here are some upcoming events that we're involved with:

  • Aug 6

    Teacher, TA, Mentor, and Volunteer Interest Night

    August 6, 2015 7:00 pm • DreamHost, Los Angeles, CA • Learn more

    Interested in becoming an instructor, teaching assistant, mentor or volunteer for Girl Develop It? Come on out and enjoy the stellar sunset views from the 50th floor and enjoy a yummy dinner provided by our host and sponsor, DreamHost, while we discuss all the different (and fun) ways you can help out!

    The number one remark we get from our volunteers and teachers is that working with Girl Develop It is both fun and rewarding! We focus on building community and empowering our students to take control of their own learning and skill development. And we’re growing fast! We’ve more than doubled the size of our group in the first half of 2015 and we’re looking to keep growing and possibly double again by the end of the year! To get there, we need lots of help!

    Responsive Design 102: Making sites responsive

    August 8, 2015 1:00 pm • Rhubarb Studios, Los Angeles, CA • Learn more

    Responsive design is awesome, but for practical reasons, we can’t always afford to re-build a website from scratch when we decide it’s time for a site to be responsive. In this workshop, we’ll take a look at techniques for taking existing fixed-width sites and making them responsive.

    This workshop will provide a basic understanding of responsive design, from concept to code, and give you the tools and resources for taking an existing site and making it a responsive one. We’ll cover media queries, design tools and best practices, and we’ll have some hands-on coding time for getting practice making it all work.

    What is Responsive Design?

    Web traffic from mobile devices like smart phones and tablets has surpassed traffic from laptop and desktop computers. That means most web users these days are accessing websites on the go from a variety of devices. Responsive Design is the art of coding one single website so it looks and works great no matter what device someone might be using to view it. It’s a hot and in-demand skill right now, so you’ll want to be sure to grab a seat for yourself in this workshop!

    Build with Code: JavaScript (free partner event)

    August 13, 2015 6:30 pm • Codesmith, Los Angeles, CA • Learn more

    Join us for this free and amazing partner event with Build with Code!

    Build with Code: Stop Watching Tutorials and Start Building!

     

    The reason people who only watch programming videos don’t become programmers is because they’re not programming. In just 1 hour and 30 minutes, you will:

     

    Get your terminology down: front end v back end, the difference between an SDK and an API (even many engineers don’t know this)

     

    Understand the foundations of web and responsive mobile development with HTML, CSS and JavaScript

     

    Build a full video chat app in under 5 mins (and truly understand how you did it too) – and share it with your friends and recruiters! The session will be followed by drinks and a Q&A with CTO Will Sentance where he discusses specific tools and subtle hacks to help you secure the most fulfilling roles in tech and get your tech venture off the ground.
