Web Start Women

Web Start Women is a group of girl geeks who are learning to program for the web so we can make awesome stuff online. We welcome women (and girls) of all ages and encourage them to build tech skills that will empower them to tackle web-based endeavors.

Meeting Info

We hold monthly Startlucks (a play on potluck) where we brainstorm, talk about current projects, and otherwise socialize in a nerdy kind of way. We also host friendly and affordable classes in a variety of web programming topics.
