SDTH Tech Workout is an opportunity to challenge and grow your tech skills in new and rapidly evolving areas (i.e., high demand jobs). In many respects, this will follow the methods of a martial arts dojo, based on personal challenge and commitment, hard work, mentoring, and mastering incredible technologies.
We’re going to be taking deep dives into emerging technology areas and new processes that are in high demand. Many of these skills are so new that they aren’t in the education and training pipelines yet, but the industry is already moving forward in these areas. There’s a “skills logic loop” happening – the primary place to learn these skills is in industry, but to get these jobs, you need to already have the experience. We’re going to break that cycle and create pathways to gain needed experiences.
Tech Workout events will be for different levels from beginner to senior developers at the same time. We plan to have multiple groups at the events based on skill level. The benefits to the community are simple – to help developers to improve their skills and find better jobs and to help companies find new talents.
