It has been almost a year since we started our internship program. The premise of this undertaking has always been simple - Inflectra wanted to give back to the community by building up in-demand coding skills among young and aspiring techies in the metropolitan DC area.
So, this week we started a new round of internships and (drum roll, please.....) we got our first woman coder!
Her name is Julie and we are excited about working with her.(Read More)

And while there is no shortage of #awesome Meet-Up groups and Eventbrite get-togethers in DC/MD/VA area, we are using our resources to make software testing fun and accessible for everyone who is interested locally.
We are weaving a web of community connections through our regular coder internship program, our webinar series, and through our meetup group - Technology and Innovation Meet-up Group in Silver Spring, MA.(Read More)
