We believe support and exposure are the best tools for introducing young women into a male-dominated industry.
Despite what you might have heard about technology jobs going overseas, there’s a growing demand for software professionals in the U.S. and an acute shortage of women in the industry.
To meet this challenge, SoftwareGR has implemented BitCamp, a one-day, hands-on introduction to the Software Development profession — presented in a fun and supportive small-group environment. Each event is hosted by area studios, giving our students a first-hand look into the industry’s day-to-day. No programming experience is necessary. The emphasis is on learning by doing.
