Our mission is to unlock the potential of the world’s most underrepresented, underprivileged, and underrated developers.
Millions can’t find jobs because they were born “in the wrong country”, in the “wrong timezone” and with the “wrong English accent”.
We call this BS.
Help us create opportunities for anyone to grow by contributing on the world’s best codebases.
