All About

Welcome to Coders Who
Travel Inc.

Message from the President

I am so excited that you are engaging and showing interest in either participating in our events and/or donating to us. Coders Who Travel Inc. was established to provide financial and operational covering for experts in advance countries to travel to developing countries to inspire and advance the careers of computer and mathematical programmers.

It cost me nearly 10,000 USD to launch the network in the sub-Saharan region. During the launch, I executed seven events: Hackathon, Seminar, Panel Discussions, Excel In Your Career Workshop, Lightning Talks, Networking Night and SAS Studio Demo. The initial event attendees were later promoted to become Co-Directors, Leads and Evangelists of the new network 6 months down the road...

Why Join Us?

We are a non-profit organization seeking to train 65% of women and 35% of men in programming at little or no cost. We have experts developers ready to train our members.

It is like a LinkedIn just for computer/mathematical programmers

Inspired by a coal miner’s article that one of our initial directors – Maria- shared about a program that targets individuals who used to learn a living in the coal industry to re-train them as software engineers. We hope we can have outreach program into the field engineering through such efforts.

Our bi-annual conference where we connect and empathize with current needs of our members

An information session to debrief our key people running the organization over a good meal.

We interview for various roles within our organization during this event

For highly motivated people who want to create permanent technology support groups modeled after our collective experience

This event endeavors to immediately capture feedback either in person or via Skype following an event such as w.Coders. This complements the survey or questionnaires we distribute at our events

A women-focused series of events on the weekend to spark a technology movement for a mix of profession women, female students and those in between. This provides target support to a group of women

Meet our great partners
