Code Differently

Code Differently is changing the lives of the underserved, people of color, and women in Delaware. We focus on building a diverse tech talent pipeline in Delaware by 1) building the interests of financially disadvantaged, under-represented students of color and women in technology, 2) training them in software development in real- world “dev shops,” and 3) helping place them in tech sector jobs. We are making an outsized impact by tapping the talent of communities of critical mass while meeting the needs of Delaware's expanding tech sector, which faces a shortage of highly skilled tech workers. Code Differently provides hands on training and education that gives participants the technical and cognitive skills they need to excel in technology-driven workplaces. Work-based learning is integrated with an online course component that delivers the academic and practical experiences that expose students to the technical skills and workplace no
rms and culture that students need in their new careers. We are here to change lives.
