It's our goal to raise $25,000 to support App Camp For Girls at this event. Your generous donation will go directly toward funding this year's programming and future growth.
This event is open to everyone 21 years of age and older.
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 2016, camp sessions will be held in Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, BC, Phoenix, and Orange County, California. Middle school girls can apply now!

A huge THANK YOU to our sponsors for making this event possible.
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—this year expanding that event to include a benefit concert.
James Dempsey and the Breakpoints is a nerdy, nerdy band performing humorous, original songs about software development, including favorites from their #5 Billboard-charting comedy album Backtrace. This year marks the 5th annual LIVE near WWDC concert, making the show a true WWDC-week tradition.
James is a fifteen-year Apple veteran gone indie as an iOS and Mac developer, trainer and songwriter. The Breakpoints are a fabled group of talented engineers-by-day and musicians-by-night who help bring these songs to life.
