What we're about

Please join us if you're a professional or aspiring software developer! POC code and coffee is an event that was created out of the need for more collaboration and representation of people of color in the software development industry. This event is a place for people of color to come and work on their personal projects, collaborate with others on projects or to simply learn software development while being surrounded by peers who can help in their journey in becoming a developer! All knowledge levels are welcome.

You do not need to identify as a person of color in order to attend our events, however, it's highly encouraged that you bring someone with you who does identify as a POC!

Recruiters, please email bwoodfork@8thlight.com if you're interested in attending any of our events. Thank you!
