From CompSci 101 to Coding Boot Camps: A Panel on Technology Education

  • Apr 23, 2014 · 6:15 PM
  • Talener NYC

For our next Tech After Hours NYC on the evening of Wednesday, April 23 we will be sponsoring an engaging panel discussion on the past, present and future of technology education.

Our panelists will be discussing how teaching methodologies have transformed in the past few years, how students are breaking from the mold of the traditional classroom to online courses, short-term intensive programs, and self-teaching, and the best practices in continuing education to keep on top of advancements and emerging, relevant technologies, trends, and programming languages.

Featured Panelists:

• Vinay Trivedi: Tech enthusiast, entrepreneur, investor with a background in computer science from Harvard University, and author of How to Speak Tech.

• Tommy Duek: Experienced developer and instructor at App Academy, a 12-week intense program in both NYC and San Francisco which teaches full stack web development to aspiring developers.

•Benjamin Encz: iOS Developer, instructor and tutorial author at MakeGamesWithUs, a company teaching iPhone game development. 

Justin Cottrell: Director of Talener's New York office, a technology staffing firm.

Our panel should interest those with an interest in the future of tech education, people exploring the different educational opportunities, industry professionals looking to advance their skills, and anyone interested in how practical learning is evolving.

    Hi folks,
    Good meetup tonight. Very much in line with the topic discussed tonight and specifically regarding encouraging young girls to pursue computer science/technology educations and careers, is this Indiegogo campaign to finance a pilot episode for an educational TV program venture called Ella The Engineer: Please donate if you can and post this campaign to other groups who are interested in this topic. Many thanks.

    Great meetup! Wish we could have gotten more into the girls in STEM angle. I founded a nonprofit called Alliance for Girls in STEM to engage girls from 4-8 yrs old with science and tech themes.
