Hackbright Directors Talk to Girls Who Code

SHARE

Hackbright Academy directors Liz Howard and Angie Chang visited the Girls Who Code class at Twitter’s downtown San Francisco office.

The Hackbright Academy directors explained to the GWC girls what the program is (“we’re teaching women 10-15 years older than you to code, too”) and shared ideas on the biggest challenges for women in tech (mutual agreement on “confidence”).

Then, the Girls Who Code students listened as Hackbright staff gave advice to girl hackers! Liz talked about hacking the system, and Angie gave advice to her younger self and talked about social media.

Here are the slides for Liz Howard’s talk about hacking the system:

Thanks to Natalie Bonifede of Girls Who Code San Francisco for inviting us to speak to speak to the summer 2013 class on 8/8 – we had a great time meeting each other over lunch at Twitter!
