Code For Progress

Avg Rating:5.0 ( 1 reviews )

Code for Progress is a one-year fellowship in Washington, DC that brings women and people of color into the coding workforce. Participants are trained in coding and design for 3-5 months by local tech professionals before transitioning into their first coding job for a seven-month post-residency period. Fellows recieve ongoing mentorship and technical coaching. Code for Progress is free of cost, and fellows receive housing and living stipends that allow them to live in DC and focus on learning.

The Code for Progress curriculum is designed for women and people of color who do not have a background in tech; graduates will be fluent in Python, SQL, Angular.js, Django, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Fellows also learn test-driven development, data analysis, RESTful API's, pair-programming, and professional development coaching, including resume and cover letter workshops, job search support, and professional networking opportunities.

Expect a two-round interview process consisting of an online application, video interviews, and recommendations. The ideal applicant is comfortable using a word processor, email, and web browser and wants to use this program as an entry point into the professional social justice movement.
