We believe you have all the talent you need to work in tech, and we’re ready to help you gain access to the skills, experience, and network you need to succeed. 

In 2015 we're going to be launching a lot of new, exciting resources for students around the country. When you join the CODE2040 community as a student, you will be first to know about new resources and programs that we launch for folks in your area. Soon, no matter where you are, CODE2040 will be there to support you and to help you prepare for a career in tech. 


CODE2040's flagship program places top performing Black and Latino/a college level computer science students from around the country in an intensive summer career accelerator in the San Francisco Bay Area. Students intern at top tech companies and participate in a series of career building sessions on evenings and weekends. 

The Fellows Program consists of:

  • A full-time summer internship at a tech company where you'll contribute to mission critical projects 
  • A speaker series with founders, CEOs, venture capitalists, and top engineers 
  • Workshops on entrepreneurship and tech topics 
  • One-on-one mentorship by tech professionals 
  • Networking opportunities with influential industry members and CODE2040 Alumni

Our list of company partners where Fellows work during their summer grows every year and includes top tech companies like Intuit, Pandora, Medium and more. See the up to date list on our Partners page.

Our 2016 application is now closed. Sign up for our newsletter to receive up to date information about the Fellows program.

CODE2040's newest student-focused program, rolling out throughout 2015, prepares Black and Latino/a students to land and succeed in internships and full-time jobs at top tech companies. Through our work with dozens of students and tech companies, we know that even the most talented students can require interview skills training, increased direct access to career opportunities, and connection to a robust support network to successfully launch their careers. 

TAP addresses these needs via complementary programs:

  • Day-long in-person workshops on how to land a job in tech including in depth interview prep
  • Retreats with other high performing students from underrepresented backgrounds to build community and confidence
  • Online tools for self assessment and targeted self-paced learning
  • Coaching and mentoring by experienced professionals in the field

We're excited to bring TAP to select geographies throughout 2016. To keep up to date on the latest and find out when you can participate in TAP in person or online, sign up for TAP now.

CODE2040 TAP's First Years on CampuS Program

CODE2040's Technical Application Prep (TAP) team is excited to launch our newest program, First Years on Campus (FYOC). FYOC is a year-long cohort program that provides the community, network, and skill-building to bridge Computer Science majors with Software Engineering careers. Our goal is to reach Black and Latino/a freshmen as soon as they start in CS, so they have the support system to not only make it in the major but thrive in the major, too. 

We’re piloting FYOC starting in the 2016/2017 academic year right here at home in Northern California. If you live at most 3 hours away from San Francisco and are an incoming Computer Science student at a university, you should apply! Application is now open. Deadline to apply is July 1st at 11:59PM PST.
