Free beginner coding classes *by and for* women in Central New York.
Our students include people with no prior programming experience and people with skills in other languages. The group and classes are free and open to all who identify as women and want to learn to code.
Young adults/teens may attend classes, too, but we ask that they be referred by an adult CLG member. (Recommended minimum age is 16, but if the referring adult believes the teen can be successful in a class of adults, we will trust their judgement.)
Lessons are held once a month on weekends, right here in Syracuse.

Join Code Like a Girl and other Upstate NY innovation enthusiasts at Hack Upstate! You do NOT have to be a professional "techie" to attend and contribute to hackathons. This semi-annual regional hackathon encourages and celebrates using technology and working together to make a difference in the community. Seriously, all the participants are incredibly kind, welcoming, and supportive – it's a blast.
