CodeYourFuture – fighting inequality in the developer community and broader society

CodeYourFuture is a non-profit coding school for disadvantaged people – this can include refugees, asylum seekers, ex-offenders, those living below the poverty line and others. We teach people to code, support their personal development and help them find jobs in tech. Hear inspirational stories and see presentations from our students who have overcome adversity and are now on their way to becoming full-stack developers.

Also – find out what our plans are for the local tech community, how you can get involved and ask questions to our amazing students and volunteers.
