The best reason to compete in 59DaysOfCode is because you want to challenge yourself and be better. This is a competition of smart people elevating their city and region into a community of first-rate technologists. Everyone wins with that.
Irma L. Olguin, Jr. (59DaysofCode creator/founder)


59DaysOfCode came to life as a collaboration between Irma L. Olguin, Jr., and the Central Valley Business Incubator (CVBI). After hundreds of conversations, dares, and dreams, the two wanted to answer the question, “Does the Valley have the talent to sustain high-tech business?”

In 2013 CVBI and Olguin joined forces to launch 59DaysOfCode as an independent nonprofit organization.

Today 59DaysOfCode is exactly that, with seven member board of directors including Irma L. Olguin, Jr., Eric Liguori, Susan Elrod, Rio Waller, Derrick Reimer, John Dodson, and Jake A. Soberal.
