What we're about

Due to Covid-19, we are unable to host any in-person info sessions, events, or workshops for the foreseeable future.

In the meantime, our remote team is working hard to provide quality content online. Please check out this link for any upcoming remote opportunities: https://www.galvanize.com/events

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Have you ever thought about learning to code but weren't sure how to get started? Let's meet and explore the fundamentals of programming, including how to write code as well as how to develop an attitude that will enable us to quickly learn new technologies.

Each meetup will be led by an expert who will guide us in a new skill or concept, and help us get started with programming, whether as a career or as a hobby.

Here are some example workshops:

• JavaScript 101

• JavaScript: Functions & Scopes

• JavaScript Fundamentals: Mini bootcamp 1 & 2

We will also host some intermediate to advanced workshops. All levels are welcome to attend :)

This Meetup is ran by Galvanize. Galvanize is a technology ecosystem for learners, entrepreneurs, startups, and established companies that meet the needs of the rapidly changing digital world. Join the Galvanize Tech Community to get directly plugged into our fast growing community of engineers, data scientists, students, and more. http://www.galvanize.com/gtc

Galvanize Datathon

Online event

**You must register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/galvanize-datathon-tickets-160873437783 in order to attend this datathon**

Event Description:
Welcome to the Galvanize Datathon! This weeklong event offers 2 different opportunities for participants to join.
Each track is designed to facilitate attendees at their current stage in learning, and give them opportunities to learn new and relevant skills and technologies.

Tracks:
Beginner - (Beginner, less than 6 months of experience)
Ex. New Python Programmers & Analysts

Advanced - (more than 6 months of experience, working data scientists, and Galvanize DSI Alumni)
Ex. Galvanize Graduates & Data Professionals

This event was organized by Galvanize in cooperation with our partners at Rapids AI, Tigergraph, and Graphistry. Both tracks will be performing analyses on data from the same source: New York State energy reports. Over the course of the last year, there has been significant changes in the load on New York energy. These loads are recorded by the state at a cadence of every 5 minutes. Participants in this datathon will utilize a sampled data set from this source dataset. The beginner track will learn how to use the various beginner level skills needed for the Data Science Immersive within the context of the dataset, and the advanced track will be given a machine learning challenge using a similar dataset.
Join us for this fantastic experience, and see how quickly your data science skills level up!

**You must register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/galvanize-datathon-tickets-160873437783 in order to attend**

Beginner Track:
Are you new to Python coding? Are you new to performing statistical analyses with code? Then this track is for you!
The beginner track is designed to rapidly build skills that will translate to the data science immersive at Galvanize. These include but aren’t limited to:
- Basic python coding: objects, variables, data structures, functional programing, and using libraries
- Libraries: We will introduce a number of libraries in python that you need to know in order to become a data scientist
- Real world data: these tasks have been created and organized around real data! Completing this Datathon will provide invaluable experience for using data science skills in business or research scenarios

Advanced Track:
Advanced track participants will be asked to perform a time-series forecast and analysis using data collected by New York State's Independent System's Operator, which coordinates, controls, and monitors the operation of the electrical power system.
The advanced track was designed with graduates of our program and working data scientists in mind. We aim to rapidly introduce a suite of different technologies and platforms that can facilitate and accelerate your data science workflow. In the form of a series of workshops and prepared materials, advanced track attendees will be given a premiere opportunity to learn powerful technologies from our incredible partners:
Rapids AI: The RAPIDS data science framework includes a collection of libraries for executing end-to-end data science pipelines completely in the GPU. It is designed to have a familiar look and feel to data scientists working in Python.
Tigergraph: Through its Native Parallel Graph™ technology, the TigerGraph™ graph platform represents what’s next in the graph database evolution: a complete, distributed, parallel graph computing platform supporting web-scale data analytics in real-time.
Graphistry: Investigate the relationships across your data with the first GPU-accelerated visual graph intelligence platform. Quickly explore from data science notebooks, share and automate workflows with your team, and create your own experiences with embedding APIs.

Duration:
Friday, July 23rd - July 30th, see schedule on eventbrite.

Online event

Looking for a support system to help kick start or continue your coding journey?

**You must RSVP on Eventbrite to receive Zoom link and updates on this event**.
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/coding-for-women-by-women-live-online-tickets-161820867571

As we all know, women are underrepresented in tech -- a recent poll said only 8% of women hold roles in tech as software engineers. We’re hoping to change that! Hack Reactor’s Coding For Women By Women was created to provide a safe learning environment for women entering into the tech space. Join Liz and Kelly as they discuss beginner JavaScript skills. They’ll discuss our approaches to beginner problems, share resources that helped us on their road to code, answer questions you may have, and more.

These events will discuss fundamental JavaScript concepts and computer science terminology to give you the building blocks to tackle code on your own.

Hack Reactor’s software engineering immersive prep courses are a great way to study before and after the workshops. There are a high volume of javascript exercises designed by engineering professionals to maximize your understanding of the fundamentals.

What You’ll Learn

Part 1- Fundamental JavaScript Building Blocks #1 - 07/14/2021
Part 2 - Fundamental JavaScript Building Blocks #2 - 07/28/2021
Part 3 - Arrays - Where, Why, and How to Use Them - 08/11/2021
Part 4 - Introduction to JavaScript Objects- 08/25/2021
Part 5 - Introduction to HTML and CSS - 09/08/21

Target Audience

Designed for beginner-level JavaScript coders! Each of these workshops builds on the concepts taught in the previous workshop.
Workshop 4 (Functional Programming) and Workshop 5 (Intro to HTML/CSS) are considered advanced beginner level. If you’re in the beginning of your coding journey, you should look for other introductory-level workshops that are better suited for your skillset and study progress!
