Summer is over, celebrate the fall with CodeDay!
Find it hard to keep up with all the news this summer? Us too! Here’s a recap of what we’ve been up to!
We launched our beginner-focused high school CodeDay events in 5 new countries:
- India (Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Nashik, Pune, Delhi, Nagpur)
- Malaysia (Penang)
- Ethopia (Bahir Dar)
- Ghana (Kumasi)
The Sacramento Kings and Apple partnered with us to host CodeDay Sacramento at Golden 1 Center.
Many low-income CodeDay attendees don’t have a computer at home. Between Spring and Summer we distributed over 200 laptops to these students so they could continue their journey learning to code into a career in tech!
We partnered with ToorCamp — a semi-annual technology conference hosted on Orcas Island, WA — to bring 25 students from around the world. (And 6 students gave their first tech talks on the main stage!)
CodeDay Labs provided 300 college students from community colleges (and other affordable local colleges) with real-world, internship-style experiences contributing to open source software, opening more than 100 pull requests.
This Fall, we’re planning to host our beginner-focused high school coding event, CodeDay, in the following cities:
- Kansas City
- New York City
- SF Bay Area
- (more to be announced)
We’re also launching and expanding more programs:
- CodeDay Init
Help college sophomores and juniors make their first open-source contribution in 3-weeks. (In partnership with CSUMB Career Talent Initiative and the State of California)
- Career Advisors
Mentors provide feedback and practice interviews for CodeDay alums starting their job search.
- CodeDay Labs Industry Track
We’re partnering with leading companies like EBSCO to provide paid, industry-relevant open-source experience, with an immediate pathway to full-time employment.
