The amazing folks over at App Camp for Girls have been hard at work preparing for Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference, and we wanted to help get the word out. They’re an incredible organization that inspires and empowers girls, transgender, and gender nonconforming youth to pursue careers in technology. Helmed by some of the most talented and committed people in the technology community, App Camp for Girls is making a difference in the lives of kids, and we fully support their vision of gender equality in the tech industry.

One way you can support them is to grab a ticket for LIVE near WWDC, a James Dempsey and the Breakpoints concert benefitting App Camp for Girls. The show will be Wednesday, June 5th from 7pm – 11pm in San Jose, and features a musical band of techies, nerds, and community luminaries performing a full concert of humorous, original, programming-oriented songs. You don’t need a WWDC pass to attend, but you will need a ticket and they’ll sell out fast, so don’t wait – this is one party you don’t want to miss! The group hopes to raise $25,000 to support future camp events, a worthy goal.

Attendees can also snag a snazzy App Camp for Girls enamel pin that we designed especially for the occasion! With a limited run these pins will surely become coveted collector’s item and are just another reason to attend this night of fun.

Finally, there are still three days left to pick up your exclusive Owl-tline T-shirt from Cotton Bureau. Proceeds go to support App Camp for Girls, so what other great reason do you need? Pick up an event ticket, order a shirt, and help bolster the gender diversity of tomorrow’s tech industry.
