Educational Center

We’re looking for assistance with opening a new kind of self-directed educational center for programmers that is autism-friendly and very cheap (or free, for those who can’t afford it).

We already have over 5,000 local members in our larger programming community (which is not autism-specific). We’re planning to expand that with a physical space where anyone can study programing seven days per week at a low cost (or free).

All programming languages and levels of experience are welcome. The more advanced members mentor the beginners in a guided self-study format. We’ve been running the meetups for three years and the model works.


We’ve been working on this idea since 2013 and have a working model in the Code Self Study group. We just need a physical location in order to take it to the next level. The next step is to raise funding for the initial opening, which I hope will take place in Downtown Berkeley.

For more information, or to find out how you can help, please send us an email.
