CODING FOR IMPACT

BUILDING TANGIBLE APPLICATIONS FOR NONPROFITS AND CHARITIES



A CODING ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO MAKING AN IMPACT THROUGH TECHNOLOGY


Formed at Hunter College High School, Coding for Impact is a group of high school students who build websites and mobile apps for nonprofit organizations and charities. Free of charge. We also develop independent projects of our own to help the community.

TECHNOLOGICAL APPROACH

A THOUGHTFUL AND INTEGRATIVE APPROACH THAT DEFINES US





Think image

THINK


Every problem has a solution. The first hurdle? Identifying that problem. Our Project and Vision Coordinators work toward recognizing specific problems in our society. Software is more than code – software is thinking; that is what separates skilled programmers from excellent ones, those who are able to use their skills to solve real-world problems. Our Lead Technological Developers discuss and reflect on the proposals by the Project and Vision Coordinators, and lay out a blueprint for approaching a solution for the problem.



DESIGN + BUILD


The execution of a product is what makes it a viable and desired tool for people to use. When working on projects or with clients, our designers collaborate to (1) understand the vision and mission of the project, and (2) develop a layout and optimizing the experience of the intended user. Our developers design a few prototypes of the project, highlighting different techniques, and we then collaborate on a final design driven by the objective of the project.



PUBLISH


Once we have completed the development stages, we move on to publish the project online for everyone to see.
