CodeSLO began in March, 2014 as a meetup group called the SLO Hackers and Coders. At first, it was just a group of coding enthusiasts, trying different themes and trying to figure out their niche. Over time they noticed that the attendance when a class was offered on a subject was very high. At the same time, the coding bootcamp phenomenon was spreading around the Bay Area, driven by the success of the graduates of schools like Dev Bootcamp and Hack Reactor. CodeSLO looks forward to creating these bootcamps in the San Luis Obispo area.

CodeSLO is sponsored by Hathway and So Create.
