2020 proved that if a crisis occurs, the government systems in place are inadequate. The way gov. agencies currently fix these shortcomings is also part of the problem.

By hiring a firm that pairs Sr. developers with tech apprentices, these projects become a system for updating our digital infrastructure while also creating a fleet of new, diverse technologists that can lift their local economies out of poverty.
