Editor’s Note

Welcome to the Network Update, a weekly update to help optimize communication throughout ProgCode and with our partners, as well as our broader community. Every week, this update will feature news of events, efforts and partnerships — effectively giving you a snapshot of our weekly activities.

What’s New This Week

Weekly updates on new projects, initiatives and partnerships, as well as news about ProgCode efforts with partner organizations. This week, we’ll also highlight the format you can expect moving forward, with relevant updates as appropriate. Next week, though, the training wheels come off — make sure you send in any new updates!

  • call-to-action — started by @woobietuesdays For anything related to mobilizing the troops
  • Legal — started by @desmondjones as a place to discuss legal issues that might affect ProgCode. Currently an ongoing discussion about what incorporated structure best serves ProgCodes needs.

This Week’s Events

Get your calendar ready! We’ll list events taking place both within ProgCode and in partnerships with other organizations, as well as notable events being attended by our members. Partner organizations and members are encouraged to submit events.
