What’s “Made With Code?”

Google started Made with Code because technology is everywhere: from the music we download, the furniture we live on, and the smart homes we live in, to the computers that run our businesses, cities and countries and the smartphones, smart watches, and smart gadgets that run our lives. However, according to Google, women aren’t represented in the roles that make technology happen. And if they are – they’re still highly misrepresented #ILookLikeAnEngineer. Enter: the “Made With Code” movement.

Creating The Code Of Their Dreams

Within the “Made With Code” spirit and framework, Google feels that if they can “inspire girls to see that code can help them pursue their passions, whatever they may be, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their voices to the field of technology for the benefit of us all.” Whether it’s film, roller coasters, apps, video games, robots, medicine, or creating a hi-tech piece of fashion with designers like Zac Posen, the power of coding is where it’s at girlfriend – believe it.

And now young girls can have the pick of what projects they’d like to code as well as the best resources to teach them about the world of programming thanks to Google’s Made With Code platform and contributors like Girls, Inc, MIT Media Lab and Girl Scouts of America.

Even Fashion Week got in on the tech movement with the Made With Code stylings of 22-year-old dress technologist Maddy Maxey. She, along with several teen girls, (under the direction of Zac Posen) created Fashion Week’s first ever LED programmed dress that wowed everyone, even the harshest of fashion critics.

The sleek LED dress beautifully lit up the runway at the ZAC Zac Posen show and the famous designer himself stated, “It’s been a wonderful process to be promoting the creativity of these teen girls all over the world.” Maddy Maxey added, “It will be so exciting to see the girls who’ve made the animations that are on the dress see what they’ve done, all represented on this beautiful spotlight.” The proof is in the faces of the young girls in the video. It’s hard to see what shined brighter, the LED dress or their smiles.
