RAHWAY, NJ – Computer coding is not just for boys, says coding guru Beth Ritter-Guth. To illustrate the point, Ritter-Guth will conduct a free coding demonstration class entitled “Girls Gone Wired” at Union County College’s Rahway Building, located at 1591 Irving Street on Thurs., Aug. 27 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

According to UCC, computer coding is a high-demand, high paying skill.  Students will be lent iPads and learn coding basics. By the end of the class, students will be able to write code to create an iPad app. The College is hoping to raise awareness that the field of coding isn’t just for males and that it may be lucrative and rewarding for females as well.

The class is free and funded in part by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
