October is Tour de Code, a month-long series filled with workshops and events created by our friends at DCFemTech to help local techies learn coding and design skills. The Post is taking an active role in Tour de Code as a proud host of the TechLady Hackathon, ACM Tech Talks and the ACM speaker series. Our own Jessica Bell on the Story Tools team is the current president of ACM's D.C. chapter and leading the effort to create dynamic and impactful workshops for the DC tech community.
