Description

Change the Face of Tech in the Next 25 Years HACK2040 is a 24 hour hackathon organized by CODE2040 staff and alumni that will bring Black and Latino/a students from local colleges and coding bootcamps together to come up with ways to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in the tech industry. The goal is to create ideas that will diversify the tech workforce in the next 25 years, when people of color will no longer be the minority in the country.
