Progress moves so quickly today it seems as if you can blink and get left behind. As Zakiya Harris, founder of Hack the Hood, says, "Technology isn't the future. It's the now." Many of the best careers are currently found in technology yet, according to DataUSA, 91.4% of programmers are either white or Asian. In 2014 Harris founded Hack the Hood in order to combat this "knowledge divide." The organization has now taught 234 youth in their coding boot camps and more focused after school programs with a 92% completion rate.
