How We Got Here

The idea behind this program was sparked by former VP of Engineering at Benetech, Gerardo Capiel. An enthusiastic open source contributor, Gerardo wondered why there wasn’t a single destination to learn more about technology for social good, or a simple way for organizations like Benetech to find specifically-skilled technical volunteers. Several months and a generous seed grant from the Knight Foundation later, the Code Alliance (first called Social Coding 4 Good) pilot began as a project within Benetech Labs.
