Meet our team:

Tyler Menezes

Executive Director and Board Member, he/him

When I was 10 I learned to code because I saw a cool book in a library. Ten years later I'd published papers at Microsoft Research and raised a million dollars for a tech startup from the best investors in SV, but it took a lot of luck and privilege to get there. With CodeDay, I'm making sure everyone gets a chance to discover how creative and empowering learning to code can be.

Mingjie Jiang

Program Manager, he/him

Mingjie is a first-year student at UC Berkeley with an intention to study computer science. He cares deeply about CS education and have started programs to combat challenges when it comes to technology accessibility. He ran CodeDay DC for 2 years, and is now helping to plan the next CodeDay Labs.

Lola Egherman

Program Manager, she/her

I have been a CodeDay Volunteer for several years, organizing physical events in the Midwest as well as assisting with global operations. Currently, I'm in charge of making sure Virtual CodeDay runs smoothly and continues to grow. I also love automating the boring parts of running events, so we all get to focus on the fun stuff.
