Looking for smart, hungry web developers to join your team? You're invited to meet the graduates of Chicago Code's inaugural cohort during our first ever Demo Day/Graduation Ceremony!

The Chicago Codes program, co-sponsored by The Rockefeller Foundation, Facebook, and Microsoft, is an 11-week, completely free, Python-focused coding bootcamp for residents of under-served areas primarily on the South and West side of Chicago. Operated by Coding Dojo, graduates of the program will be ready for a variety of roles in the tech industry including junior web developer, software engineer, QA Tester, Application Analyst, etc.

Each Chicago Codes grad will give a brief presentation of his or her project, followed by an opportunity to get to know our students and experience their web applications hands-on. We will provide snacks and beverages. The event will be directly followed by our graduation Ceremony, something all are welcomed to stay for.

Is your organization planning to hire? This is a great opportunity for local companies to recruit local tech talent to support their growth, especially as tech moves beyond its own borders and becomes a bigger part of healthcare, manufacturing, finance, and beyond.
