In this episode of Adventures in Angular, the panel talks to Shmuela Jacobs, Samantha Rhodes, and Bonnie Brennan about ngGirls. ngGirls is an organization that provides a free one-day workshop with volunteer mentors who will teach them Angular basics. It was inspired by Django Girls and provides this type introduction to programming for women who want to learn about Angular. They are really passionate about bringing ngGirls all around the world so that women everywhere can be introduced to both Angular and programming.
