There’s inspiration everywhere - but sometimes for a newcomer, the field may be daunting. Here are 8 women led code communities to follow,
WTM is a Google-led program that provides visibility, community, and resources for women in technology. They host events, provide content and share stories. The best part is that there’s most likely a local community that you can participate in too! You can check out the list here.

This is one of the oldest communities for students and professionals. They have great events that get you hired on the spot! They also provide scholarships for college students. A lot of times they also give away tickets to large events (Google I/O anyone?) so keep your eye out for this one!
I love this one because it’s one of the few communities that focus on women and design! It’s quite young but I’m excited to see how this span out.
She++ has the loveliest founders ever! Their story is as inspiring as the community they’ve built. If you’re just starting out to code, don’t forget to check this one out!
