TranscodeSF was developed in 2012, as a free programming class for trans and gender non-conforming folks. Today, TranscodeSF has grown to a community of trans & GNC people currently in tech and aspiring coders, engineers, designers, and newcomers to the industry. 

TranscodeSF teaches folks computer programming and software engineering skills through a co-working space, series of free classes, study groups, and hands on events with tech industry experts. TranscodeSF actively networks with allies in the tech industry and often invites allies to teach new guest series classes and to provide much needed mentoring opportunities.  All events are open to allies.


The goal of TranscodeSF is to develop more diversity in tech and to build a community of trans and gender non conforming individuals currently in or aspiring for a career in technology through skill building, mentoring, and networking opportunities.

TranscodeSF is a collaboration partnership with the SF LGBT Center’s Trans Employment Program. The mission of Trans Employment Program is to educate employers as well as to connect job seekers to trans friendly and sustainable employment. Additional Trans Employment Program services at the Center include one-on-one coaching and job search support for all trans* individuals. Also, check out our LGBT Career Network on Meetup. 

TranscodeSF is excited to be partnering TRANS*H4CK, local employers and training programs, and TransTechSF. Please share your ideas for meetup and share trans friendly tech events.

• Co-working space & technical study groups
