When: Saturday, September 15th at 11am

Where: Benefix Headquarters

Our next event will be our first ever in-house workshop! Benefix, a local technology and web-development start-up will host Convert to Code on Saturday, September 15th.

Starting at 11am, participants will have the chance to interact with Benefix founder and CEO Matt Ranauro and Chief Product Officer Mike Monteiro, who will speak on their experience in entreprenuership and tech. Then participants will engage in a collaborative coding event. Unfortunately, due to seat limitations, this workshop is invite only at this time


Code by the Students, for the Students

We host free coding workshops in Lancaster County to give middle school and high school aged students access to real-life developers and instruction, something many school districts in Lancaster County lack. This is the area which we aim to fill!

Our Philosophy of Free

We always want Convert to Code to be accessible, and that means accessible to everyone. We never want anything, be it skill level or money, to stand in the way of someone's opportunity to learn and grow. We believe that learning to code is a vital part of our increasingly tech saturated lives. Whether you are selling shoes or building airplanes, you need engineers and coders, so having a basic understanding of how computers operate, not only demystifies them, but increases your awareness of what is possible.


We have hosted over 13 free coding workshops since our inception in 2017.


We leverage Lancaster's rich tech scene to locate professional developers to teach our workshops and to help design our curriculums.

Focused on creativity, collaboration and cutting edge technology, participants of past workshops have built projects that include a beatbox website, homemade Space Invaders and Android apps


We have reached students in over 22 school districts in the Lancaster, Lebanon and York area
