About this event

In just two years Girl Develop It Chicago has grown from an idea in our founders' minds to the largest women-focused technology Meetup in Chicago. We are 2,300+ members strong and have hosted nearly 100 events, workshops, and classes. We couldn't have done it without the tremendous love and support we've received from our instructors, teaching assistants, volunteers, and sponsors.
