There are so many problems that can be solved with your skillset- big and small. You can contribute to solving problems like the inequities amongst underserved communities, improving the developer experience, or even a mix of both. Which challenge are you most interested in taking on?
Teach a skill 🚀
Resilient Coders is bridging the equity gap in tech by paying and teaching people of color from underserved communities to code. Not only are they giving underserved people a highly in demand skill, and the tools to succeed, but they’re diversifying an industry with a huge disparity of people of color.

Instantish is building an issue tracker to be used by every role at the company, instead of being restricted to the product and engineering teams.
