The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) is proud to host its first Latino Coder Summit! The summit is part of the LOFT Code as a Second Language national initiative.

If you are a Latino coder, programmer, hacker, developer, and/ or a computer scientist, we invite you to be a part of this one of a kind experience. 

Join HHF 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 programming. 

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. 

Register here! Also, make sure you check our new LOFT Code as a Second Language website: www.loftcsl.org
