codeX is a training organization that places very high value on collaboration and interaction. Working with new-to-tech candidates based in under-resourced communities, we tackle a number of constraints and rely deeply on individual and group mentoring to create lasting transformation. We had never pictured being able to deliver the programme via remote channels. Forced out of our co-located complacency, this is the story of our journey from dedicatedly in-person to successfully blended and fully remote.
