IntroductionIntroduction to CodeWeekend
CodeWeekend has emerged and evolved to be a web developer accelerator program that delivers training and mentoring program to help committed individuals learn how to code and find new or better jobs in the market.
Our goal is to create learning and career-growth opportunities for developers in places of need, to help them enhance their programming skills and access a network of opportunities to grow.
To achieve this goal, we conduct a 4-month long intensive training program with qualified instructors and mentors along a market-assessed practical curriculum.
The pilot phase of this program will be implemented in Kabul initially and for the next 3 years, the plan is to expand in at least 6 major cities in Afghanistan.
HistoryA short history of CodeWeekend
CodeWeekend was founded by Jamshid Hashimi on 4th of June, 2014. The community since then, managed by a group of volunteers, conducted more than a hundred sessions, events and trainings for developers in different cities in Afghanistan.
CodeWeekend provided learning and career-growth opportunities for hundreds of developers in Afghanistan and since its creation, kept the developers scene active and vibrant in the country.
