Becoming a speaker might look like delivering a talk or leading a conversation;

  • on a specific topic like AI, Blockchain, Augmented Reality, Security, UX/UI, etc.

  • about a day in the life of your job/company.

  • about technical challenges you’ve faced, the decisions you made and why.

The topics listed above are just suggestions. If you have another topic in mind that you think would align with the program, we are more than happy to explore that with you.

Mentor

Making a transition into a new field of work can be overwhelming for many. The Full Stack Developer program helps individuals from a variety of backgrounds pivot and build skills to work in the technology industry. To support our learners on their journey to become Full Stack Developers, we are seeking experienced professionals to take them under their wing and show them the ropes.

What a mentorship relationship looks like;

  • A 6-month commitment to one or more or our learners.

  • Meeting or connecting at least once a month. Meetings could be face-to-face, phone conversations, or online exchanges.

  • Sharing your experiences working in the technology field (opportunities, challenges, emerging trends, etc.).

  • Providing guidance, support, encouragement, and feedback to learners. It's an intense 6 months and connecting with others who've been where they are can help a learner keep momentum.

  • Helping your mentee connect with industry. This could include;

    • inviting or going with your mentee to a networking event,

    • introducing your mentee to other technology professionals,

    • sharing employment opportunities that you come across that may be a fit for your mentee.

We currently have a group of learners who are seeking mentors, and have a group of 30-40 more learners starting in February 2019.

Tutor

When it comes to learning any new skill, there are always bumps along the way. We have a full-time dedicated tech lead for the program, but there are times when our learners really benefit from some extra one-on-one support.

If you are knowledgeable in development languages like; HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Node.js, REACT, and Python and best practices in Responsive Design, DevOps, Automated Testing, Application Architecture, Agile, Security, and Human Interfaces we would love to have you as a tutor.

What tutoring looks like;

  • Being paired up with one or a small group of learners.  

  • Connecting with learners and helping them learn the core skills of becoming a competent Full Stack Developer.

Tutoring can be done face-to-face in our classroom or online using a virtual tool (i.e google hangouts, Skype, etc.) The program runs Monday thru Friday from 9 am - 4 pm, however, many of our learners need support outside the core programs hours on evenings and weekends.
