Since the organization launched in 2012 they have made significant strides in teaching HTML, app development, web design and more to aspiring girls. They’ve had two summer immersion programs, one of which the 2012 graduating class developed apps as their final projects while the 2013 program gained recognition from partners like Google, Twitter , Ebay and many others. Starting in New York, Girls Who Code plans to expand to other cities: Detroit, San José and San Francisco.
