First 100 Girls of Code Workshop Set for May 16

March 24, 2015

Coding is big in the central Arkansas tech entrepreneurship ecosystem right now, and part of the wave of momentum was the announcement of 100 Girls of Code coming to Little Rock.

The central Arkansas chapter is up and running and its first workshop from the Innovation Hub has been scheduled for May 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

100 Girls of Code was created to attract more girls to coding. More info and registration for the workshop available here.

And here's more from Arkansas Business:

The program offers free workshops to females ages 10 to 18 to generate interest in computer science among girls, according to a news release. Participants learn computer programming basics by building websites and video games.

"We are very pleased to bring 100 Girls of Code to Arkansas," said Warwick Sabin, executive director of the Hub. "This programming fits perfectly with our ongoing efforts to bring more engaging STEM education to our region, and we are especially interested in increasing access and outreach to underserved communities."

Plus, the Iron Yard coding school is setting up shop in Little Rock. More details coming soon.
