This week a remarkable group of young people started our second Code the Dream course in Raleigh, NC, including students from Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Ghana, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, Romania and Venezuela. We’ve joked that every class is like a meeting of the United Nations!
We also have a number of women in the class, which itself is really rare in the tech world. All the students are excited to get get down to work — some so excited that they had already started studying on their own a month before class started.
Thank you again to our volunteer mentors and to all of you who have made donations to make Code the Dream possible for this new group of students.
