Here's what people are saying about us

Code Connector events give me encouragement to keep going when it's easier to give up. The family atmosphere helps to motivate you to continue in your Coding or IT endeavors. The events incorporate work with fun. I cannot thank the organizers enough for having the foresight to bring this awesome organization to my city (Memphis). I understand the grit and grind that it takes to make this chapter successful.

Code Connector has and continues to be an amazing environment for budding or experienced developers. I love the variety of people I get to meet at their workshops and events.

This organization has helped to tackle so many different concerns while I was getting into coding. They helped me with interview prep, find what local employers were looking for, understand what kind of routes into coding best fit my personality, and so much more. It’s a great place to start and they might even help land you your first gig! With Code Connector, you’ll always be connected with like-minded individuals who are already in the field and always doing more to change the environment around it.

This organization has helped me connect with other developers around Memphis. I have made friends through CC that have shown me so much and I have always learned something when going to the meetups. I highly recommend going and listening and showing off your project. The feedback and experience is invaluable.

Code Connector was a great introduction to the tech community in Memphis. They provide a space to interact with developers of all levels and as a junior dev new to the game and I feel like I learned a lot and even taught a little through the meet ups that CC organizes.

Becoming a successful software engineer is a road best traveled with friends. Communities like Code Connector provide the resources, support, and inspiration to get started and get ahead. Whether you're starting from scratch or a seasoned pro, the knowledge sharing, mentorship, and exposure to new topics you'll experience when you get involved is sure to be rewarding.

I started a tech bootcamp early 2019, with absolutely no ties to the tech-world, aside from my brother. CC provided me with an extremely supportive and motivational community, one that helped me land my first tech job 7 months after my bootcamp!

A few years ago, I found myself dissatisfied with my career. I had spent eighteen years in mental health and was looking for something else. I attended a Code Co-op meeting in Knoxville. I met some great people that continued to provide direction and encouragement for getting started in coding. As it happened, the person I was set to interview with, for an internship, happened to attend this meeting. Through the connections I made through these meetups I was able to finish an internship and graduate. The meetup offered an open environment for beginners and never felt like it was too good for anyone to attend. I would strongly encourage those interested in or just starting their coding journey to join Code Connector and attend local meetups.
