Special code training class behind prison walls.

Last Mile Works, a non – profit project, are implementing in the San Quetin prison. In this project, prisoner can help enterpriser to build software applications. The prisoners who join can earn upto 16.77 $ per one hour. It is less than standard salary of the developer in Silicon Valley. However, the program can help prisoner to get software knowledge and makes easy to find a job when they are released from prison.
