Girl coder? You should go watch “CODEGIRL” for free on YouTube

by | Nov 5, 2015

CODEGIRL, an extension of Google’s “Made With Code ”project,  is being shared, free of charge, on YouTube.

The movie which was produced by Lesley Chilcott profiles Technovation, a tournament in which high school girls from around the world have three months to design an app that solves a problem in their community.

The film debuts in theaters Nov. 1 and will be available to stream for free on YouTube from Nov. 1 to Nov. 5. It will also be available on Google Play and iTunes on Nov. 6.

Shedding more light on why YouTube was chosen as a platform to debut the movie, CEO of YouTube, Susan Wojcicki, says “YouTube seems to be a great place to launch this film, as AdAge just reported that some popular female YouTubers carry more clout than some mainstream celebs”
