We've had to push back class start dates a bit, but all three of our winter classes - Newbie Programming, Newbie HTML/CSS and Leveling Up: JavaScript - are currently open for registration and beginning soon!

I'm compiling a massive list of resources for the new +Girl Develop It Columbus website. Do you have a favorite beginning programming or HTML/CSS site/book/screencast/blog/whatever? If so, send it along and I'll include it.

Hey, Girl Develop It Columbus now has a Google+ page. Just in case you're into that sort of thing. And considering I'm posting this and you're reading this on Google+, um, you probably are. Add us to your circles for GDIC news and updates.

Also how the media keeps interviewing the models to represent a female perspective on technology, while conveniently forgetting that they don’t actually work in, or often have any interest in, technology. Or that the whole thing isn’t laughably 1962. (I mean, have you been to Vegas? CES doesn’t touch the frowny-faced emoji that goes down for women there.) So, accepting these facts as a given, let’s talk about the depressing shit they’re making these women wear."
