About Us

Back in 2015, a small group of coding newbies from London wondered why there were no communities for gender minorities learning JavaScript and Node.js. So they decided to fix that.

Later that year, Michelle Garrett, Mina Gyimah and Claire Mitchell created Node Girls, and the first events were held in London.

Inspired by the likes of Rails Girls and Django Girls, we run free, one-day workshops, where folk can learn to code in a friendly, non-intimidating environment.

We put a big emphasis on making our events as accessible and inclusive as possible.

The community that has grown over the years, and we continue to support each other and share the coding love!
