We recently hosted our first day-long web development workshop under the Code Convoy banner. The goal for the day was to provide an opportunity for non-programmers to evaluate web development as a potential career path.
This first event was a great learning experience for everyone involved. We received positive feedback from attendees after the event, but we still feel there's a lot we can do to improve these events and provide more value in the future.
We hope some people's interest in programming is piqued after last weekend. We are thrilled to announce that we will continue to provide additional opportunities and resources for people who want to pursue a career in programming. The plans are still being formalized, but there are other workshops and plans for an eight-week course for people who want to continue their journey in to web development.
In addition to the continuing education through Code Convoy, we have also kicked off an apprenticeship program. Our first apprentice started this week and it has already been great having someone with so much energy and enthusiasm with us every day. Our goal is to learn as much as we can in this first 3 month program and open it up for all applicants in 6 to 9 months.
