On Saturday 5th November, I will be speaking at the Code To Change Conference in Amsterdam.
Here’s the details below and link to buy tickets for only 45 euros….
Welcome to The Code to Change Conference 2016! Like our successful conference last year, we are all about teaching and learning new SKILLS that will enable you to explore careers in the technology sector.
The Digital Revolution has changed and is changing the world we live in. In the future, ninety percent of jobs will demand digital skills. By 2020 there will be a skills deficit of a million unfilled jobs in Europe. With unemployment across Europe reaching 10%, solving the gap in e-skills will bring innovation, growth and new opportunities for many people.
You don’t have to go back to school to go into IT. The Code to Change conference will introduce you to a variety of fields in the technology sector. You will learn about existing fields, the skills required to enter these fields and tips on where to get those skills. If you are looking for ways to join the IT sector (you know, the sector that is actively looking for more people to fill the huge number of open positions) or simply update your digital skills, this is the conference for you.
The conference also gives you the unique opportunity to have a speed mentoring session with the speakers of your favorite sessions.
Our 2016 conference theme remains “Where do I start my tech career?” We are featuring talks, sessions and workshops from seasoned technology professionals. As well as technical and career development talks and workshops.
Topics range from big data, high performance computing, coding to confidence building, career histories and network security. The aim is to not just be about skills building, but also about expanding your network and giving you information about the options available to you.
See you on the 5th of November in Amsterdam!
