Hello Girl! is a coding network for girls and women. The purpose of the network is to inspire, share knowledge and exchange experience about how it’s like to work with tech. Eventually this will increase gender equality in the technical field. Hello Girl! started in Jönköping, in October 2018, as a two day long web programming course arranged by Science Park, local organisations and companies and has now grown to so much more than that. You can find Hello Girl! on Clubhouse, LinkedIn, GitHub, Facebook and Instagram.
“We need more women in the technical field so that they also are a part of developing the technology that everyone will use. We need diversity also in this profession.”
Linnea Karlsson, teacher Hello Girl!
