CodeChix is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives (501c3). It is an organization for local women developers run by local women developers in a non-alpha, language/os agnostic, supportive environment with an emphasis on face-to-face communication. It is the first group of its kind and started in 2009 in San Jose, CA.
The key goals of CodeChix are to educate, promote and mentor women engineers and developers. We foster continuous learning, provide mentorship/guidance and create a local community of women developers. The original chapter of CodeChix is in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area with additional chapters in Seattle/Redmond. The CodeChix slogan is “May the code be with you…”.
Events are open to to the public or women-only (specified on the event description). Our speakers and workshop instructors can be female or male.
