About Us

CodeChix - cool developers and brainy chicks meeting face-to-face and gadget-to-gadget in a non-alpha, language/os agnostic, supportive environment and creating great things. 

We are a local, group for women and men (although we concentrate more on women) meeting face-to-face and gadget-to-gadget in a non-alpha, language/os agnostic, supportive environment and creating great things. Our events are either open to all or women-only (see details in the agenda).

Our LinkedIn and Facebook membership is open to men and women developers and non-developers (project managers, engineering managers etc.)

Our Groupspaces membership is for Bay Area women developers (and anyone that identifies as a woman - queer, trans etc., henceforth referred to as "women") who are any of the following:

Programmers, developers, designers, hackers, thinkers, putterers, engineers, scientists, open source goddesses, gadget freaks, all kinds of geeks, techies-into-food, techies-into-pretty-much-anything, laid back and cool techy chicks… you get the general idea. So, come join us and hobnob with some of the coolest, techiest chicks in the valley.

Apart from having our own mailing list, we choose to meet face-to-face and talk about projects, code, discuss work issues, and anything else that has relevance in our techy lives. We are about building lasting connections, friendships and alliances with other techy women living in the Bay area.
