Today, Facebook reminded me of the Operation Code Launch Party held on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at Epicodus code school. The event drew over 75 friends and family to downtown Portland, including representatives from all Portland-based code schools and Sen. Ron Wyden and Congressman Blumenauer’s office.

Since then Operation Code has grown nationally and internationally as a 501c(3). Below are some videos when we launched this week, four years ago in Portland.

These two videos were our official campaign videos released that very week:
