Hiring from a Coding School for Your Startup

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the last few years, there has been an explosion of schools dedicated to closing the technical skills gap, and Seattle is no exception. Many of these schools train students for more established, enterprise-level companies. Are coding school graduates good fit for startups as well? How do they fit into the overall ecosystem?

This event features a panel of several coding school graduates and the companies that hired them. Hear their stories about life for a new coder in the chaotic and exciting world of entrepreneurship. Also hear some tips and best practices from startup employers who are looking towards coding schools to fulfill their technical needs.
