Let’s get the ball rolling!
ngGirls aims to introduce women to the world of technology and increase the diversity in tech. Angular is a great technology to start with. We believe this is a win-win situation!
Our main activity is one-day workshops, where the participants build and deploy their very first Web application with Angular. The day starts with an intro to Angular. Then the participants follow our tutorial with the guidance of volunteering mentors. The workshops are co-organized with local communities, who know best their own needs.
The target audience is women and people who belong to other underrepresented communities in tech, who would like to learn and try out a new skill - web programming with Angular. The main activity requires basic knowledge of HTML and programming (in any language), which can be achieved using online tutorials or our own pre-workshops beforehand.
We aim mainly (but not exclusively) towards young women who:
- show commitment to contribute to the community
- make their first steps in web development
- would appreciate the financial aid in the form of the free workshop.
We’re a team of 6 Angularists who manage ngGirls voluntarily: Shmuela and Revital from Israel, Martina and Robert from Germany, Kasia from Poland, and Alisa from the USA.
ngGirls was founded in 2016 by Shmuela Jacobs, Google Developer Expert (GDE) in Angular and Web Technologies. Back then she worked as a consultant and trainer, following a career change where she discovered her passion for programming. Today Shmuela is a Cloud Developer Advocate at Microsoft.
We’ve had more than 75 workshops around the world since November 2016.

Some notable activities:
- While in most workshops we have around 40 participants and 15 mentors, we've had two mega-workshops with around 120 participants and 40 mentors, the first in the Angular headquarters in California, and the second as part of the NgColombia conference in Medellín.
- After a huge success of the workshop in Karachi, Pakistan, initiated by Zainab Saleem, the Pakistan Angular community organized a 3-day ngGirls course, called "Road to Angular", where the participants learned front-end basics before working with Angular.
- After Kasia joined as a mentor in one of our workshops in Poland, she organized a series of weekly follow-up workshops and created tutorials on advanced topics. That was before she officially joined the ngGirls team :)
- In several events, and specifically online, we’ve added additional technical and inspirational content by engaging speakers from the community.
We're looking forward to organizing more workshops, writing more tutorials, increasing our impact and inspiring many more people and especially women around the world!
