Due to the crisis in Ukraine we expect to receive more applications that qualify for our program. That’s why we are increasing our capacity to accommodate a larger class. Powercoders was created in response to the refugee crisis of 2015. Our mission has remained strong and unchanged: We promote equal job opportunities for displaced talents in the IT industry.
