Community-Driven Education

Most students fail because they lack the support needed to push through adversity. Our Meetup group hosts bi-weekly 'stand-up' meetings during the workweek to provide accountability, with a weekend event on Saturday or Sunday to bring the community together.

Understand Engineering Culture

Our community offers weekly 'Sprint Planning' and 'Sprint Retrospective' meetings during the weekend to plan our open-source work on #thehub & to help students understand how engineering teams work, to practice estimating their ticket items & build confidence in themselves as developers.

Build Products for the Market

Courses & tutorials are great, but most of the practical experience you need to be attractive to employers comes from building actual products. We pair students with local entrepreneurs to create compelling portfolio pieces & businesses together.
