A Great Mindset, Pre and Post Coding Bootcamps with Nicson Martinez

Link visible for attendees

Nicson Martinez, Tech Academy graduate, will be joining us to discuss how to keep a great mindset pre and post coding boot camp.

Coming to the US from Honduras at ten years old opened up a lot of opportunities for Nicson, especially in the realm of technology. After growing up in The Bronx and going on to get his BS in Computer Information Systems, Nicson actually ended up getting out of the tech industry for a number of years after an unsuccessful attempt at learning to code. But with the desire still there after all those years, he decided to try again and more seriously pursue his interest in coding, so he attended The Tech Academy.

Nicson graduated in 2019 and is currently working as a Software Developer at Microsoft.

In this Talk, Nicson will share his experience with The Tech Academy, landing a job and will share tips on how to keep a great mindset through the process and after graduation.

Join us Friday, September 30th at 1 pm Pacific Time (2p MT, 3p CT, 4p ET) in our Google Meet room.

Sean Lemson will be joining us to discuss six traps that many leaders fall into and how to avoid them.

On the surface, these traps seem to be good leadership practices, but they almost always result in poor outcomes for teams and organizations. Despite this repeated failure to achieve what they want, leaders continue to fall into these traps.

Whether you’re a current leader or an aspiring one, you should know these six traps well and build up strong defenses against them. Step one is awareness and Sean will share the rest with you in this Tech Talk.

Sean is an Organizational and Team Performance Coach and certified Executive Coach with over a decade of experience helping companies transform. He founded Motivated Outcomes, LLC with one mission: To help companies become places people want to work.

Join us Friday, October 7th at 1 pm Pacific Time (2p MT, 3p CT, 4p ET) in our Google Meet room.
