Wednesday we graduated 19 very talented developers that will go off to their first career in tech; one of which has already secured a position as a Software Development Engineer. We can't wait to see where their careers take them. They completed 6 very challenging months to secure the technical skills needed to be successful, and it's always amazing to see the personal and professional growth of each individual as well as the bond each cohort has. This group was no exception, and we loved the additional sense of community they brought with them. From students bringing in baked goods and hosting movie nights, to making sure the entire campus is included in social events and has a place to spend the holidays, everyone feels included. It's truly a community full of genuine individuals, and the camaraderie and sincere support everyone has for each other is lovely to experience.
This group represents 7 women and 12 men, and the Latinx and LBGTQ community. Previous careers they’ve had collectively include: technical writer, classical trumpet player, server, graphic designers, postal carrier, computer engineer, open-source cyber-crime investigator, textile designer and more. They’re all bright, curious and committed. They’re going to make amazing team members at the organizations they go to work for too.
They are now ready to formally enter the tech community to contribute within the great companies in our city. Our grads traditionally get hired as software developers or engineers, and go on to rewarding careers.
