Color Coded is an online community for creatives and entrepeneurs of color working in tech or wishing to get into tech.

We aim to promote creativity, growth, and wellness in our community by:

  • letting a member of our community run our Instagram every Friday and share about their day

our story

Color Coded was founded in 2016 by Pam, a software engineer, design lover, and wellness proponent.

It started as an unHackathon, a collaborative event where creatives huddled to develop products benefiting communities of color. The event, sponsored by Vox Media, alleviated stress by removing prizes, and deadlines. It gave attendees the space to focus on their creation while forming genuine bonds!

That one event led to a growing community of creative of colors and allies meeting bi-weekly during our meetups, learning new skills during our workshops, and sharing tips, ideas, and even music in our Slack channel.
