Hello, students, instructors, and partners of Careers in Code!

Please join us for our Careers in Code kickoff meeting on Thursday, March 7th @ The Technology Garden at 5:30pm in the theater area!

Careers in Code is a coding bootcamp that teaches computer programming to women and minorities to help fight poverty in Central NY. We provide students with the technical skills they need to obtain internships and entry-level software development jobs with local employers after 24 weeks of instruction.

This will be an informal networking opportunity between accepted students, instructors, and partners of the program. Following the networking portion, students will stay for a brief orientation and laptop distribution.

[5:30pm - 6:30pm] Networking, introductions from students, instructors, & partners, icebreaker event
[6:30pm - 7:00pm - Accepted students only] Brief orientation, laptop distribution

Students - We invite you to you say a few words during introductions for everyone to learn more about you, your background, and your goals for the program. This is a great opportunity to meet the other students, speak with your instructors, and discover local employment opportunities! Following the networking portion, we’ll be going over a brief orientation and distributing laptops for the program.

Please note that this is meant for *accepted* students of our program!

Instructors - We invite you to you say a few words during introductions for students to learn about you, your background, and the modules you’ll be teaching. This is a great opportunity to meet with the students for the program and learn more about them!

Partners - We invite you to you say a few words during introductions for students to learn about you, your company, and possible internship and entry-level positions that are available at your company for students upon graduation and mingle with upcoming talent! If you just want to come to hang out, that’s cool too.

Pizza and drinks will be served!
