Our First Meetup
Our First Meetup at Cornerstone Coworking
If you’ve ever wondered how you can become a computer programmer, then this talk is one you should try to catch.

Jeff Ammons is our Chief Instructor and has worked in the software industry for 25 years in jobs ranging from Technical Writer to Principal Architect. In this Meetup he walked the attendees through the four main ways to start a career in programming:

  • 4 Year Computer Science Degree
  • 2 Year Computer Programming Degree
  • Intensive Study “Bootcamp”
  • Self-study

Since this is a topic of interest to many, many people Jeff will repeat this talk on a regular basis via Meetups, both for our Meetup group and for others who invite him to speak.
