CEF sponsors One-day Student Conference in San Antonio

The Foundation continues to build upon its existing programs and resources to attract and engage a new generation of IT talent. Recently in May, we were able to offer 13 local San Antonio students a one-day conference in conjunction with COMMON’s annual conference POWERUp18. Students attended two half-day workshops; one on Python and one on Javascript & JQuery. Afterwards, they all sat for the COMMON Business Computing Associate Certification exam at no cost to them. Student feedback on their overall experience was overwhelmingly positive with many saying they’d like to be invited to future events.

New programs like this one are introducing our future IT workforce to COMMON, the community and all the benefits that come with being a member of an organization that can take you from the inception through the fruition of your career.
