I just want to share the wonderful, but limited time opportunity that youtube is doing: they have released CodeGirl for free until November 5th on their website, due to its up coming theatrical release.
This documentary focuses on women in coding and technology, shattering the stereotype in our society and many of our minds that coding is a “boys only” activity and job.
Here is a summary of this documentary provided by YouTube CEO, Susan Wojcicki:
“CODEGIRL” follows the story of 5,000 girls from 60 countries as they compete in a global entrepreneurship and coding competition by Technovation. The girls have three months to develop an app that attempts to solve a problem in their local community. In the film, they size up their competition, interact with teachers and local mentors, learn to code, and pitch their ideas all in hopes of winning $10,000 in funding and support.
Anyone who is interested in coding, knows someone who is, or just wants to support women in STEM, please watch this video.
