Access Code focuses on practical, hands-on learning. Students worked in a pair programming environment and teamed up together to build applications. The course started and ended with weekend coding marathons, with students hacking away for 16 hours over two days. We wanted a program where students could learn from each other in a collaborative environment. We are extremely proud to say that our inaugural class is 57% female, 52% underrepresented minorities, and 40% immigrants. To find the most promising students from a range of backgrounds, we partnered with local community institutions such as Upwardly Global, Chhaya, Queens College, and the CUNY Macaulay Honors Program.||Adults||Queens, NY||Jukay Hsu||Founderfirstname.lastname@example.org|
