Publisher's Summary

Part how-to, part girl empowerment, and all fun, from the leader of the movement championed by Sheryl Sandberg, Jack Dorsey, and other giants of tech. 

Since 2012 the organization Girls Who Code has taught computing skills to and inspired over 10,000 girls across America. Now its founder, Reshma Saujani, wants to inspire you to be a girl who codes! Bursting with down-to-earth explanations of coding principles and real-life stories of girls and women working at places like Pixar and NASA, this book shows what a huge role computer science plays in our lives and how much fun it can be. No matter your interest - sports, the arts, baking, student government, social justice - coding can help you do what you love and make your dreams come true. Whether you're a girl who's never coded before, a girl who codes, or a parent raising one, this entertaining audiobook will have you itching to create your own apps, games, and robots to make the world a better place. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

great for any beginner

I love how this book broke everything down into super simple concepts and reported back on real life experiences from girls who code students. Reshma is my hero.
