FAQ

  1. Why Programmers 4 Peace? What does peace have to do with programming?

    We believe that one of the major barriers to peace is economic instability and by teaching youth the skills they need to be competitive in today’s job market we are helping to remove that barrier.

  2. What are you doing to address the gender gap in technology?

    At least half of our workshop, hackathon and bootcamp participants are female. By training more girls and women and having a strong female presence in our classroom environment we are opening up the door to get more women and girls interested in and working in tech.

  3. Can You really teach someone to code in just two weeks?

    Our programs are intense, we pack a lot of knowledge into a short amount of time. Our style of teaching is hands on and project based learning. We have a high number of mentors to learners and a lot of one on one code reviews. The computer science field requires lifelong learning and this is why we offer ongoing support to all of our bootcamp alumni. However, you will be amazing at how much you can learn in just two weeks.
