A group of young Latina girls are taking part in coding boot-camp at an Austin software company.
Girls ages 9-14 have met engineers, designers and programmers at Blackbaud and are getting lessons in basic computer coding, as well as some good advice for life.
"Don't let anything stop you from your dreams, whether you're a girl or a boy or you've got black hair or blond hair, doesn't matter, you can all do it, OK?" Blackbaud Quality Assurance Tester David Dauber told the group.
The 10 hour coding boot-camp runs from July 30-31.
The campers will also work in teams to create a mobile application that can help their communities.
The coding camp is organized by the nonprofit group Latinitas.
Blackbaud is a leading global provider of software and services specifically designed for nonprofit organizations.
