Breaking the Code: A practical workshop removing the mystery from technology

We all have to interact with technology - but for some of us our jobs depend on it. If your job involves finding technical professionals, assessing technical job skills, matching candidates to job requirements, etc., this workshop is for you!

The Tech Academy offers targeted professional training, created with your needs in mind. In this popular workshop, you will learn from technology industry experts:  

- Fundamentals of how computers and programming work 
- The types of tools that all developers need to know, and how to map a candidate’s skill set to those tools 
- How software is actually made in a modern software development shop, and how to really understand what technical hiring managers are asking for 
- What all of those confusing acronyms and terms really mean

The technology industry changes fast. If you don’t have a solid foundation, and a genuine understanding of the tools that are in demand today, you can be left behind.

Attend our practical, one day workshop. This interactive, comprehensive class covers all of the data above, and has extensive Q&A time as well. You will have an opportunity to get all of your questions answered.

Date: Wednesday, Dec 13
Time: 9am - 4pm
Location: BESThq
12745 SW Beaverdam Rd, Beaverton, OR

Here's what our attendees have to say about the workshop:

"This workshop was amazing! Starting with only a base knowledge of tech, in a few hours my tech vocabulary and skill set is greatly improved. Well worth the money. The instructor explained and answered all questions without judgement." - M. C., WorkSource Vancouver 

"Incredibly engaging! The answers to the majority of my questions that have gone unanswered (usefully) in the past year, have been answered." - M. A., VanderHouwen & Associates

"As someone who is responsible for guiding prospective career tech folks through training and into employment, this training was critical in helping me to better grasp many industry concepts.
