We are a non-profit community that seeks to teach game development skills to girls and women in the Ottawa area. The bulk of the sessions come in classes provided in evenings. We will also offer learning tools and resources through our blog and website while our social channels act as a knowledge share network. Perfect for those who want to be a part of Girl Force but opt out of the formal classes.
Girl Force is open to women, and non-binary folks who are motivated to learn something new in the field of video games or technology. No experience is required, but a desire to learn is a major asset. If you ever dreamed of making games for a living or as a hobby, this program is for you.
Nothing! This program aims to be free to all. Members require access to a laptop, but for those requiring assistance we try to provide hardware if necessary.
We are currently running a spring 2016 semester right now. Beyond that, the best way to stay in touch is to sign up for emails above! We'll also be updating this website and using social media to keep everybody posted as we go.
Our first season of class starts April 4th 2016. Sign up for our emails to be first to know more about Girl Force!
