At Code Fellows, we believe tech careers should be open to everyone. The future of tech needs to be shaped by the diversity in our world-through the full breadth of humanity. It will be the people from all walks of life desiring to level up, the curious who fall in love with learning, and the problem solvers who see things that need to be changed that will find rewarding careers in technology. …


In part 1 of this three-part blog series, we looked at how to get a home cyber range started in order to host a threat detection ecosystem via VirtualBox. We deployed a Dell Precision T3600 along with VirtualBox, a budget-friendly computer model selected to support additional CPU cores. Next up, we will need to establish remote connectivity to conveniently access the command line, the screen, and the file system in order to treat this computer like a true dedicated server.

In computer operations jargon, we have clients and servers. Servers are dedicated host systems whose sole purpose is to run…

The evidence clearly shows that markets focused on innovation, policy, and financial investment thrive. However, the biggest challenge to economic growth is the lack of skill-based education to meet the demands of the market.

When communities don’t invest in relevant skill-based education, the economy suffers. There are typically large segments of the local population in these communities that are left out and left behind. In order to ensure stable and thriving economies, we must invest in education that provides the skills necessary to attract global companies, start new companies, and improve the overall infrastructure of the community. …

Turning Ideas Into Code: Making Roman Numerals Count

To get us thinking about how we can talk about the inexplicable processes our brain uses to break down problems, we can take a dive into a subject that takes very little effort for many of us: counting numbers. Counting is a task that many of us complete on a daily basis, thus it should serve as a great canvas for discussing our mental process. Let’s take a close look at writing code to understand Roman numerals, and see all the work that happens before the coding begins.

What do these 5…

Ever wondered how cybersecurity pros simulate threats in a safe manner? Join me in this first entry in my series all about how I built my own affordable home cyber range, and how you can too!

Why a Lab Computer?

Cybersecurity professionals make use of a wide range of tools that run primarily on a Windows or Linux operating system (OS). Security techniques often involve tracking the communication between multiple machines on a network. Rather than building out dozens of special-purpose physical computers on a local-area network or cloud, this environment can be simulated with virtual machines (“VMs”). …

2020 lessons learned

It has been said that we don’t often know what we have until we lose it. 2020 has definitely been a year of a lot of loss-lost time, lost freedoms, lost community, lost jobs, lost lives-but it has also given us a lot. Here are five things we have learned, that will impact most of us for the rest of our lives.

Your Health and Wellbeing are Essential

Far too often we take our health and wellbeing for granted. Many of us don’t consider going to the doctor unless we are triaging a current issue. Not only has COVID shown us how vulnerable our health is…
