SAN FRANCISCO, CA – During an effort to address San Francisco’s pandemic homeless crisis a local advocacy group has discovered that upwards to 80% of the city’s homeless are actually entry level programmers.
“It’s a pretty sweet deal,” said PHP developer Jayden-James Holland. “Beside having to pick up and move every two, three days I get free meals and vaccines, a shower once a week and free internet!”
Despite efforts to re-habitate the homeless camps most of the programmers say they prefer living in tents and to be free from the burden of rent and living expenses. Many on the city council are worried these young people will become chronically homeless.
“I don’t think of it as homelessness,” said Holland. “It’s more like an outdoor co-working space!”
