July 13: From Code Bootcamp to a Software Engineering Job, presented by Veronica Cannon

We are pleased to welcome Veronica Cannon to present: “From Code Bootcamp to a Software Engineering Job.”

Programming bootcamps are like trade schools for the digital age.  These 2-6 month intensive programs are designed to take the new or beginner programmer to job-ready in a short amount of time.

Veronica Cannon, a full stack Ruby on Rails engineer and director of Woman Who Code Reno Tahoe, will be sharing her experiences from Hackbright Academy, a coding bootcamp in San Francisco, and discussing how code school graduates can move into roles as software engineers and continue to grow their careers.

While these bootcamps can quickly make attendees into candidates for high-paying entry level jobs, many companies that employ bootcamp graduates don’t yet have well-established paths for these junior engineers to progress to more senior positions. Others feel the short bootcamp programs aren’t enough experience. Cannon will discuss how she sees the path to success for bootcamp graduates and employers.

The meeting will be on Monday, July13th, 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. A $5 fee includes pizza and salad. Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking with other technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region.
This month’s event is sponsored by New Leaders, Clear Capital, and  Elevate Blue
