  • Careers in Code Bootcamp: Curriculum Discussion
    Hello again, technology thought leaders of Syracuse! Please join us for our final get together on Thursday, October 18th @ The Technology Garden at 5:15pm in the GENIUS NY area for a follow-up meeting regarding our curriculum for the 24-week FREE Careers in Code Bootcamp! A few weeks ago, we surveyed local employers to get their thoughts and feedback to help inform our curriculum. To date, we’ve received 12 responses from 10 different employers. We’ll use this data to have a discussion around the curriculum and how it should be structured. We’d like to focus on these questions: 1) After completing the bootcamp our students should be able to do A, B, and C. 2) For them to be able to do A, B, and C after ~24 weeks of instruction, we're going to teach X, Y, and Z concepts using these languages and frameworks. This will be the final in-person get together with everyone before we tighten up the curriculum/structure. We’ll also have a video dial-in for folks that cannot attend in person. Pizza and drinks will be served! After this discussion, Jesse and Doug will huddle up and map out the curriculum and structure based on the feedback and thoughts. We'll then transition into interviewing and hiring instructors and mapping your interests and availabilities to the curriculum and structure of the program (please be sure to apply when you can if you haven't already - https://careersincode.org/apply/instructors.html). If you’ve already applied - hang tight - we’ll be following up in a few weeks. Thoughts? Questions? Email [masked] and be sure to join the #careers-in-code channel in the Hack Upstate slack.

  • Careers in Code Bootcamp: Preliminary Instructor Discussion
    An invitation from your host: Hello, technology thought leaders of Syracuse! Please join us Sept 6th @ The Technology Garden at 5:15pm to discuss our upcoming Careers in Code bootcamp! We're looking to hire first-rate instructors and advisors who are passionate about advancing our region's technology community. This is a profoundly rich opportunity for our tech community to create long-lasting careers for the region's underprivileged. This will be an informal discussion regarding how we can create the absolute best coding bootcamp possible for women and minorities from Syracuse's distressed communities. The success of the program will be measured by the lives we further through long-lasting careers in code. Given your incredible work experience and your undeniable expertise, we hope you will consider working with us and help shape how the program should be structured and ultimately how the bootcamp should run. Please bring your thoughts, your questions, and your #codelocal ethos! Pizza and drinks will be served You can learn more at our website, https://careersincode.org

  • Cloud Data Storage Security - NEW Things to Consider
    If you haven't added 2-factor authentication to your accounts, your data is at risk - you need to attend this Tech Meet Up! Many of us think our data in the cloud is safe because it has trusted names like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google behind it, but the reality is nothing is guaranteed. Dropbox, Amazon Web Services, and other huge names have experienced data breaches. It’s up to us, the users and data storage managers, to understand and create better security strategies, such as multi-factor authentication across all accounts, especially Office 365, and ultimately decide if cloud data storage is appropriate for each situation. Join Mike Cretaro, cybersecurity consultant for ACC Technical Services, for this lunch and learn seminar in partnership with The Tech Garden. We’ll provide practical tips and wisdom that can help your organization think smarter about cloud data storage security as well as cybersecurity as a whole. ACC Tech is providing lunch so please RSVP.
