She codes; is a community of over 7,500 female software developers, with a goal to reach 50% female software developers in the Israeli hi-tech industry within a decade.

She codes(tlv); meets every Sunday evening at the Google Campus, on the 34th floor, overlooking Tel Aviv.

Each HackNight is a 3-4 hours freestyle coding session in which developers are invited to work on any coding project, learn to code, or learn a new language, while enjoying the hacking atmosphere, and networking with other women developers.

Shh, she codes. Watch out guys.

I love it. Go girls go!
