Last year, we successful held our first-ever WebSlam, a hackathon-style event where students took a week of intense coding classes leading up to a day-long coding session where they had just 8 hours to code a website for a local client from start to finish. This year, we've revamped and rebranded our event. CodeLA consists of a week of coding workshops leading up to a day-long coding event that we are now calling CODEchella. Students from our various  YouthBuild Charter School of California sites will work together in teams with a mentor from a local tech company to build a site for a local client that meets a community need. This is a great way to bring together the South LA community and use technology to promote positive social change. 

Forbes did a great write-up on last year's WebSlam. You can check it out here.

    Please feel free to invite your friends! Anyone is invited to stop by and check out the event. Just let RSVP here if you plan on attending so we can follow up with directions and parking info. An awards ceremony will be held at the end of the day, and we'd love to have a big crowd there to support our young coders. Please note: we have nearly reached our maximum capacity for student coders. Please email Nadia at if you have students who would like to participate.
