What is the Use of Being Human if We Can’t Help Others?

The value of any network is proportional to the value and frequency of the contributions of its members.

To this end, we ask that you contribute something of value to the Code Sport community on a periodic basis. Each of us has talent. And we each have the capacity to change the world for the better. Why not amplify your impact by sharing it with those who can benefit? You will get community recognition and credit for all your contributions.

Here are some ideas and suggestions to help get you started:

  • Join us to participate in online Hackathons
  • Contribute a tutorial to our blog and share something in which you have expertise
  • Know of an upcoming conference or seminar? Share it with the community so others will benefit!
  • Volunteer as an ad hoc mentor to a junior-level Software Engineer within our community
  • Share your knowledge with our community by hosting an online class or tech talk (i.e., short seminar)

About Us

Code Sport was founded in January 2013 as a WordPress design studio called Code Boss Interactive. In fall 2013, we converted to a code school in Durham, NC. We subsequently held our first class at Duke University in February 2014.

In September 2020 we completed our transition from being a code school to becoming a Software Development and Engineering Incubator. With this transition, we have reinvented ourselves as “Code Sport Labs”. We are now a 100% remote collective with members from all over the globe!

Our mission is to provide a fertile environment to collaborate, explore, and launch innovative businesses spanning the Blockchain, CyberSecurity, Artificial Intelligence, and Finance sectors using software and data analytics.
