Live from Atlanta: Square Code Camp 2017
This week, Square’s Atlanta Office welcomes 13 college-aged women pursuing careers in engineering.
We launched Code Camp in 2012 to inspire, educate, and empower the next generation of women in technology. Today we’re kicking off the inaugural Code Camp Atlanta, and we’re excited to show off a Square office that’s integral to our robust engineering team.
Our 13 stellar participants are joining us from universities near and far: from USC to Harvard to Spelman to UT Austin. They’re in for a jam-packed week full of coding workshops, networking opportunities, and leadership sessions, including with our CEO, Jack Dorsey. I’m incredibly excited to head down there this week and spend time with this cohort, and am greatly looking forward to our lunch and hackathon on Friday.
In addition to working closely with Square engineers to learn, build, and develop coding skills, Code Campers will have the opportunity to visit three other Atlanta tech companies: Google Fiber, CallRail, and FullStory.
We are committed to preparing these women to forge their paths in engineering, wherever their careers take them. Over the years, Code Camp has fostered this incredible network of women who learn and grow together far beyond the five day program. They leave with skills and relationships that last a lifetime.
Stay tuned for a Code Camp wrap-up next week, including insights from attendees and a behind-the-scenes look at this year’s group Hackathon!
