Want diversity in tech? Stop looking in the same places for talent, tech CEO says
from Albany Business Review
Demand for computer science education is exploding and, right now, traditional programs aren't keeping up. Technology companies agree on the challenges within in the talent pipeline – the industry needs a way to train more qualified graduates, the workforce needs more women and people of color and all of that will take time. In the meantime, coding bootcamps — which typically teach basic, in-demand skills to a diverse group of students in a number of weeks — can fill jobs now, Seattle-based Code Fellows CEO Dave Parker said.
