Prince Georgians Can Code


Inncuvate + INNOHUB@PGCC partnered with the Apple Computer Inc. Education Division to launch an initiative to increase the pipeline of local software development talent that supports the Coding Lab

our Approach

  • Hosted a series of events to identify, connect and unite the Prince George’s County Maryland software development community in order to show that software developers come from all walks of life and do not fit the dominant perception of what a software developer looks like. 
  • Used Apple’s Everyone Can Code Curriculum to offer introductory and advanced level iOS/Swift coding courses, periodic boot camps that covered everything from helping learners explore basic Swift software development concepts with Swift Playgrounds to building fully functional apps in xCode.

our Results

  • Hosted 2 Apple Everyone Can Code events for software developers and entrepreneurs to engage and talk about app challenges
  • Built a community of 5 software developers that support INNOHUB@PGCC
  • Conducted two introductory iOS/Swift Coding boot camps. 
  • COVID Impacted - Program to resume in 2022
