Here are a few of our values when it comes to teaching someone how to be a developer:
At each of our locations we offer free code classes for kids. We believe in investing in the local tech economy for the long-run, and that means impacting the next generation.

(Not only does this develop a giving mindset, but it helps them communicate things they’ve learned—an essential skill as they grow into management positions in their careers.)
