Code Camp Takes Atlanta – Square Corner Blog – Medium


Square’s immersion program aims to inspire future engineers and further their pursuit of a career in computer science.

Code Camp — Square’s immersion program for college women interested in pursuing careers in tech — is coming to Square’s Atlanta office for the first time!

We developed Code Camp five years ago in San Francisco, then took it to New York City, and are excited to expand to another city that’s integral to our robust engineering team. In August, participants will join us in our Atlanta office for five life-changing (so we’ve heard!) days of coding workshops, leadership sessions, and networking opportunities.

Here at Square, we’re committed to improving the ratio of women in technical positions. We launched College Code Camp to inspire, educate, and empower the next generation of women in technology. Over the years, 140 women have participated in Code Camp, creating an incredible network of women spanning more than 50 universities across the US and Canada.

Atlanta Code Camp will run from August 14–19, 2017 and applications are open through June 1, 2017. Twelve women from across the U.S., U.K., and Canada will be selected to participate. Learn more here, or email us at codecamp@squareup.com.
