Crack the code to your future dreams
Since 2012, the organization Girls Who Code has been leading the charge to get girls interested in technology and coding. Now its founder, Reshma Saujani, wants to inspire you to be a girl who codes!
Bursting with dynamic artwork, down-to-earth explanations of coding principles, and real-life stories of girls and women working at places like Pixar and NASA, this graphically animated 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 book, printed in bold two-color and featuring art on every page, will have you itching to create your own apps, games, and robots to make the world a better place.
"Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World" Reviews
I listened to the book and know I am going to read it. This is a good intro book to try and encourage young women to learn to code. I found the book inspirational, but technology wise I don't think just from reading or listening to this book I could create an App or website. I would need more instructions. The audio book kept mentioning pdf files. When I ordered the book I couldn't seem to find illustrations or a disk to find the pdf files. Maybe I am missing something. Syntax error ;-)
It took a long time until coding came up in the book and to me there was to much text and not enough guided help.
So inspiring and empowering!!! I WANT TO CODE NOW!!!!

MrsLeif's Two Fangs About It
This is an amazing simple intro into coding computer science! I love the idea of creating classes for girls in middle school to teach them how to code and also to show the many wondeful things computer science can do! It features all women in science who are professionals, and the women in history that created coding! Such a wonderful guide even I (as an adult) learned something and it sparked a interest in creating something new with coding! I am afraid I too have fallen into the stereotype of coding = guys in hoodies living in basements apart from the few awesome women hackers I’ve seen in movies (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo..!). Also that it includes math or is too hard or above me to even try. In my generation we had Apple Computer Labs in the late 80’s... I remember taking a Graphic Design Class In HS, but the tech was just starting by the time I graduated in 2003. Some of my friends went to technical colleges and I thought they were trade school for like electricians and welders.. had no idea! The world is changing fast. The author says that 50% of the world’s population are women.. and why are there 50% women as CEO’s and Scientists.. and I think she is right to point that out. I don’t have any daughters, but if I do I will make sure she gets a chance to discover Girls who Code! It’s a great community as well, in a world where it’s already hard enough to connect with people! Amazing Insiteful Honest Creative Inspiring and all around Cool BOOK!! I reccommend actually to anyone no matter your age or sex because the material presented, is attractive!
great book. inspiring and motivating.
- Easy to understand.
- Rich with ideas (for what one can get done with programming).
- Probably will inspire some really young girls.
- A good and accessible table of various languages and their uses.
- Too simple.
- For people who have seen any computer from very far.
- Too many pics, too little info.
- All the hype about girls not doing enough programming will probably backfire in our stereotype-laden society.
