Software developer Jocelyn Harper, a Zip Code Wilmington grad who works for O3 World in Philadelphia, announced on Twitter that she’ll be taking over as the new chapter lead for Girl Develop It Wilmington.
This is so weird to announce, but I am now the chapter lead for @gdiwilm! I get to continue the amazing work that @MegAnthonyKeogh and Paulina have built in our community over the last 3 years. Thanks for believing in me! pic.twitter.com/htYKsuBVz7

Harper is taking over for Megan Anthony-Keogh, a longtime fixture of the Wilmington tech scene who now lives in Philadelphia and works for wearable-tech company ROAR for Good, and Pauline Rubin, cofounder of First Ascent Design. Both are moving on, due to time constraints and new projects.
Absolutely! I can’t wait to see how you grow and inspire this community! 🙌you’re going to do a great job! 💓💓💓 https://t.co/V37xjvgVQM
