3 years ago, we started the Austin Hispanic Hackers meetup as a small get-together for Spanish-speaking tech folks. Today, we have over 1200 members and are one of the largest diversity-focused tech communities in Austin. In this session, we will go over the challenges the Latinx tech community faces, and the lessons we have learned in building up this community.
