DLL Storyfies of Black Girls Code in 2015

Last update: Tuesday 12/22/15
2015 was an incredibly productive year for Black Girls Code (BGC), a year that ended with the Oakland-based program expanding its volunteer operations from Oakland and New York to Washington DC, Raleigh-Durham, Memphis, and Atlanta. 

Although the DLL tried to curate as many BGC events as possible, there were so many that the DLL couldn't keep pace. So this note does not provide links to Storyfies of all BGC events in 2015, just the ten the DLL was able to capture. Fortunately, by the end of 2015 BGC began to curate its own events ... :-)

A. Panel discussions

B. Launches of new volunteer chapters


C. Build a Game/Website in a day + Robot Expos


D. Hackathons


Thank you to the leadership of Black Girls Code, to its staff, and to its cadres of volunteers for the great work you all did in 2015!!! And here's hoping that you have an even better year in 2016 ... :-)
