Summer of Code is a 6-week, full-time, software development bootcamp offered in San Francisco for undergraduates at Davidson, Scripps, Dension, MountHolyoke, Colorado College, and the University of Washington. The program covers the fundamentals of computational thinking and problem solving using software, with the aim of teaching students to build proofs of concept, and blend their liberal arts education with tech skills. The program is taught by experienced technologists and educators, and students will interact with mentors and industry professionals. Students will visit Silicon Valley organizations to learn how technology is used in the workplace. Housing, meals, and activities are all included in the tuition cost.

Summer of Code is open to undergraduate students at the partner universities. To apply, candidates do not need coding experience, although the program is a good fit for those who have had some exposure to coding, or have taken an intro to CS course. Each applicant must complete an online application and participate in an interview. Students should be motivated, be team players, and be ready to take on an exciting challenge.

During the program, students will be connected with San Francisco area alumni for 1-on-1 professional or technical mentoring. Students will have access to Silicon Valley startup and industry professionals, and will receive guidance on how to network effectively. Upon completion of the program, students will be skilled enough to apply for a technical internship, and will understand how programming and digital skills can be leveraged in a variety of fields. Students who complete Summer of Code will receive academic credit for their respective college.
