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.
