Code Coven Partners with Facebook Gaming for the Second Consecutive Year to Support Underrepresented Talent Through the Game Developer Program.
This support for early-stage developers will take the form of structured advice, mentorship, and funding through stipends to see games developed in the program from concept to completion. Underrepresented groups interested in learning to code are the intended audience.
Code Coven recently appeared at GDC and joined a panel discussing the heightened responsibility of the gaming industry in the wake of the pandemic.

The course enables people from marginalized communities to enter and be adopted into the industry. of the game. We look forward to supporting our new set of cohorts to learn from some of the best and brightest in the industry.”
