Patience pays off - 501(c)3 Independent status
Well, CodeChix is now an independent 501(c)3 educational non-profit !!
I got the paperwork from the IRS earlier this year and then, well, life happened. And everything took a back seat till I got my job, health and responsibilities sorted and am just now beginning to get back to an even keel (so-to-speak).
O'Reilly and CodeChix are partners this year - they are really great!
