Who We Are

firstByte is an organization founded in 2017, incubated from the team behind Hack Arizona, that is dedicated to providing free technology education. We are volunteers from the University of Arizona who believe anyone can be a programmer with the right guidance. Let us help you take your "first byte" of coding!

At Hack Arizona

We partner with Hack Arizona to equip hackers with the skills they need to create a successful projects, regardless of their previous experience. This includes subjects like coding fundamentals, web development, and more experienced topics like machine learning and artificial intelligence.

In Your Classroom

We visit high schools and middle schools in the Tucson area to introduce students to programming and show them the many possibilities it unlocks. We hope to inspire interest in technology and higher education in young people, especially those with fewer opportunities.
