Disrupting Education: The Inside Scoop on Software Bootcamps

Code schools and Bootcamps are popping up everywhere, disrupting our traditional education paradigms and creating new paths to social mobility. But, what is a bootcamp exactly? Why are they so popular and what do they do? How skilled are their graduates and what are they contributing to the field? Join us for a panel of boot camp instructors, staff, and alumni for the inside scoop. Learn about the training programs we have locally and how they’re building a diverse talent pool right here in Colorado. This session is for anyone who is thinking of learning to program, considering hiring junior developers, or interested in training or education trends. It’s a great chance to get your questions answered and solve the boot camp mystery by going straight to the source. We believe this session fits with Denver Startup Week because developers are the lifeblood of the technology industry and responsible for building many of the things that make our startups possible. We think this session is an awesome idea because understanding the training and talent pipelines is an important part of finding the right human resources to leverage for success.
