TeenDevConf

Engage aspiring hackers

About TDC

I always love opportunities to share with and learn from other young developers in my community, because there's always a chance you'll meet a team you can work well with. I'd like to see more people my age attending STEM-oriented developer conferences and other cool community tech events. So, I've started a nonprofit that raises funds to provide grants to teens interested in learning about new technology. TeenDevConf strives to benefit the hatchling hackers of our community by inspiring and motivating them to, as I like to say, use their powers for good.

Support Our Mission

TeenDevConf is a nonprofit, so our primary source of income is the support given to us by our benefactors and STEM enthusiasts. Without your donations, we would have no way to pay the often expensive entry fees for many of these educational events. The developers of the future will exhaust their skill and potential on petty fundamentals, when they could instead be benefiting from an exciting tech event, learning the latest and greatest techniques of today. I've seen such situations before, in which an early coder with so much potential never ventures to leave his/her comfort zone. Your donation could precipitate the final prod that pushes a young coder to advance in his/her career.

Events

Join us and other nearby teen developers at a variety of STEM-oriented tech events! This includes competitions, conferences, gatherings, and various other tech opportunities in and around Northwest Arkansas.
