By 2017, the app market will be valued at $77 Billion. Over 80% of all these developers are male. The Technovation Challenge aims to change that by empowering girls worldwide to develop apps for an international technology competition. From rural Moldova to urban Brazil to suburban Massachusetts, CodeGirl, by Lesley Chilcott, producer of An Inconvenient Truth, follows teams of girl app developers and programmers from around the world who dream of holding their own in one of the world’s fastest-growing technology industries. The winning team gets $10K to complete app development and release their app on the market. But it’s not about the winning, it’s about what the girls who code discover along the way.
Girls who code and develop app ideas for the Technovation Challenge address issues in their community and try to solve problems through the use of technology. This can include anything from waste removal, clean water, preventing impaired driving, or creating positivity in your community, these codegirls try to use the latest in technology and app development to help.
