What is App Camp For Girls?App Camp For Girls Logo

App Camp For Girls is a place where girls can put their creative power to work, concepting and building apps, while learning more about the business of software and being inspired by role models who are professional software developers. When girls see how fun and creative app development can be, they'll be more likely to pursue a career in software development and technology. The inaugural season of App Camp for Girls took place in the summer of 2013 in Portland, Oregon. In Summer 2017, our fifth year of operations, camp sessions will be held in Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, and Chicago. Middle school girls can apply now!

About women@wwdc (formerly WWDCGirls)

WWDCGirls Logowomen@wwdc (formerly WWDCGirls) started in 2012 as a way to build camaraderie and fellowship around females at WWDC and beyond. That original informal luncheon has grown into an annual event where women in technology can meet during WWDC-week. The group has also sponsored an annual Happy Hour Fundraiser—expanding that event to include a benefit concert.
