This group is for anyone interested in a career in the tech industry or already working in the tech industry and interested in another tech career path or just trying to learn something new or become certified on a platform. There is plethora of online resources for self-teaching but sometimes it can be challenging sticking to it, sometimes you get stuck and just need a help button and encouragement.
The purpose of this meetup group is to form study groups for certifications or software platform around information technology, development, operations and popular certifications. The study groups will also serve as an avenue to help people launch a career in Information Technology to improve their economic opportunity.
Subjects can range from continuous integration, spark, elasticsearch, Jenkins, Azure, AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Comptia+ certification, analytics, beginning programming, cissp certification etc. leverage existing online resources such as courses on coursera, pluralsight, edX, Linux Academy and others. Once there is enough interest in specific subject we will organize a study group and find experts in that field to help add structure, answer questions and provide guidance on best practices. We will learn many things along the way of what works and doesn’t work in forming study groups.
This group is also for tech professionals looking for avenues for social impact with your technical expertise / background to help bridge skills and opportunity gaps in tech.
