Taming the Wild West

The world has changed a lot since the days when Lewis and Clark mapped the West, yet for people entering today’s technology ecosystem, it can feel just as wild.

Technology is still mostly uncharted territory where pioneers continue to venture in the hopes of discovery. For most people, since there's no defined path or prerequisite for entry, successfully transitioning into the technology space can be a confusing and overwhelming process. What do I learn first? How do I learn it? When will I know that I'm ready?

What will you learn?

  1. The knowledge and skills you'll need to be successful in tech

  2. Where to find the resources and guidance you'll need to be successful in tech

  3. Why the tech community needs your unique perspective

Attend this interactive, engaging workshop if you are ready to begin successfully mapping your own technology career.
