I don't simply want to invite you to a ground-breaking event Hispanic Heritage Foundation is hosting called the 2015 Latin@ Coder Summit at Stanford in Silicon Valley on Saturday, May 2nd. I want to tap your leadership to help inspire and mobilize other Latino coders, programmers, hackers, developers, and/ or a computer scientist, we invite you to be a part of this one of a kind experience. Simply go to http://www.eventbrite.com/e/latin-coder-summit-tickets-16104218150 and register for yourself and anyone you think would be interested in going. This is for students and professionals.
Join the Hispanic Heritage Foundation as we debunk the technology industry's greatest myths, and help mobilize coders from across the nation, both students and professionals alike, to celebrate Latino culture, innovation and passion for Computer Programing at Stanford University on May 2nd in Silicon Valley. The Summit is a one-day event filled with back to back workshops, discussions, and opportunities to expand your network- please join us in redefining the landscape of computer technology through a heightened collaboration and representation of like-minded Latin@ students and professionals, all united and ignited by their endless passion for technology. Below is the agenda we have developed for the one-day event. After the Summit we will be hosting our LOFT (Latinos On Fast Track) Awards and reception at Google headquarters.
Also, make sure you check our new Code as a Second Language (CSL) initiative website: www.loftcsl.org to teach Latino youth to code.
We look forward to hearing from you!
