Made with Code Launch

By Erin Mulcahy

As part of Google’s initiative to get more girls engaged in programming, the Made with Code site officially launched Thursday with the support of some impressive women, including Mindy Kaling, Chelsea Clinton, Pixar’s Danielle Feinberg and Icona Pop, and 200 tween and teenage girls.
