Ada Developers Academy (ADA) (www.adadevelopersacademy.org), located in downtown Seattle, provides an intensive software developer training program for women and gender non-binary students with little or no prior software development experience. In one year, students are taught programming techniques and best practices to enable them to become junior developers. The program consists of two distinct parts - six months in the Ada classroom, and five months of internship at local sponsor companies where students refine their skills working on real-world code. Ada is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks. Our mission is to diversify Tech by providing women and gender diverse people the skills, experience, and community support to become professional software developers who contribute to changing the world with software
