We know that tech jobs are among the fastest growing, but we've still got a ways to go in terms of the number of females in these roles. We're creating this initiative for you, a way for you to connect and thrive. More than just another coding competition, it's about making new connections – with females from different universities and females working at some of the biggest technology companies.
