We believe that removing the code barrier to make web and software development accessible to all will require a diversity of experiences and perspectives.
Which is why we’re thrilled to offer scholarships to attend No Code Conf to members of the veteran and community college student communities.
The No Code Conf lineup includes a broad array of content to get you started with no-code tools and workflows, or deepen your existing knowledge.
Shift is a mission-driven talent development company powering successful career shifts for military veterans. The veteran community isn’t widely represented or supported by the tech community at large, and we hope the rise of the no-code movement will empower underserved groups like military veterans to create for our future.
Jason Tinnin, founder of FlowPros, has seen time and again the lack of opportunity for vets returning to civilian life. This is just one small gesture to give back to those who have given so much.
Those who have served in our nation’s military are some of the hardest-working people on the planet. I’m excited to support our vets by giving them a chance to learn new skills and get inspired by this no-code movement. If even one vet comes away from this event ready to start a new venture, then it was worth it. Nearly every great opportunity in my life came from someone else giving me a helping hand. I hope this scholarship program provides that same spark for someone else.
No Code Conf happens to fall the day after Veterans Day, so it’s the perfect way to honor our veterans.
We advise sponsors to choose a single organization to partner with instead of asking for applicants in a public platform. This allows us to make a bigger impact within one group by building a relationship instead of simply donating. It also eliminates the onus on scholarship recipients to have to disclose their financial situation in order to apply, and possibly re-live any trauma. We feel that the founder of the community is better equipped to select the scholarship recipients in any event.
MemberStack is giving away 10 all-access tickets to No Code Conf for community college students.
The founders were community college students themselves just a few years ago, and they wanted to show some love to their former peers.
Maybe it’s different in other cities, but two-year schools got a bad rap where we grew up. It wasn’t even an option according to most parents, teachers, and counselors, which is entirely ridiculous. They forgot that the 4-year degree is not the end goal of education. The goal, in our opinion, is to one day make money doing what you love. If you need a degree to do that, then so be it. The degree is not the destination. Saying 4-years of traditional education is the only way to land a dream job is like saying hand-coding HTML/CSS is the only way to build websites ... and we know better than that!
By offering student scholarships to No Code Conf, the MemberStack.io team hopes to encourage and support others to accomplish their goals however they need to — no matter the route they choose.
If you’re enrolled in community college and are interested in learning more about visual development, No Code Conf is the place to do it. Your ticket to No Code Conf gives you access to it all — the pre-conference workshops, the conference, and both after-parties.
Here’s the fine print:
- You must be at least 18 years old to attend No Code Conf
- Travel costs are not included in the scholarship grant
- Applicants will be randomly selected and notified via email on Monday, October 28
