A programming group for trans and genderqueer folks

TranscodeSF was developed in 2012, as a programming class for trans and gender non-conforming folks. Today TranscodeSF has grown to a community of trans & GNC people currently in tech and aspiring coders. Transcode teaches folks computer programming and software engineering skills through a series of classes, study groups, and hands on events with tech industry experts. All events are free and open to all trans and GNC people and their allies.

The goal of TranscodeSF is to develop more diversity in tech and to build a community of trans and gender non-conforming individuals currently in or aspiring for a career in technology through skill building, mentorship, and networking.
