TranscodeSF (http://transcodesf.org/) was developed in 2012, as a free programming class for trans and gender non-conforming folks. Today, TranscodeSF (http://transcodesf.org/) has grown to a community of trans & GNC people currently in tech and aspiring coders, engineers, designers, and newcomers to the industry.

TranscodeSF (http://transcodesf.org/) teaches folks computer programming and software engineering skills through a co-working space, series of free classes, study groups, and hands on events with tech industry experts.
