What we're about

TranscodeSF (http://transcodesf.org/) was developed in 2012 as a free programming class with the goal of increasing diversity in tech and building a community of trans and gender nonconforming individuals. 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, and study groups.

We are a collaboration with the SF LGBT Center’s Trans Employment Program (http://transemploymentprogram.org). The mission of the Trans Employment Program (TEP) is to connect job seekers to trans friendly and sustainable employment and to educate employers in trans-competent work practices. Additional TEP services at the Center include one-on-one coaching and job search support for all trans individuals. Also, check out our LGBT Career Network (http://www.meetup.com/LGBTQ-Career-Network/) on Meetup.

Highlights:
• Co-working space & technical study groups
• Career development and job search support
• Referrals and support with local resources
• Current and aspiring coders are welcome
• Please send suggestions of what you'd like us to cover!
