Announcement of “Becoming IT professional” focused 98th ONLINE

We believe that there would be hard to find somebody for whom September is not associating with learning. always has been about learning, especially learning from experience of others. This time we thought that it would be good to focus the event on “how to become an IT professional (programmer, tester, DevOps, whatever)” and found people who can share how to teach programming to kids, how to re-qualify from nonIT to IT professional and how to help people with some knowledge in IT to become a real IT professionals.
This event could be especially useful for those who are just starting to find their way into the IT world. If you know someone who fits this description please share about this event to him.

But times have changed and now there are plenty of interactive media – tools, games, and educational videos. There is no need anymore to wait for the first courses of the university to learn programming basics. The talk will share experience about teaching kids programming on-site and remotely.
