Description

Women Who Code is celebrating our second anniversary in the Twin Cities this fall!

We’ll host hands-on activities that mirror the themes of some of our favorite events over the past two years, including 3D printing, maker crafts, programmable robots and VR. Guests will enjoy free food and drinks while perusing our silent auction items and merchandise table, the proceeds of which will help us fund future programs and events.

But it's not just about us! We want to highlight the work of other organizations who are making a big impact in the Twin Cities tech community, bringing together a network of people making positive change. We're inviting leaders who are making a difference in our local community to speak at our event. We can make a larger impact when we support each other and work together!

We hope you’ll join us for this fun evening, and we look forward to celebrating with all of you!
