Disrupting the Market With a Disruptive Workforce presented at CisoMiami 2015

by Jim Mckelvey,

Summary : Companies know there’s a problem — and enterprise organizations are beginning to see it, too. There simply aren’t enough talented, innovation-savvy tech workers to give businesses the support they need to grow and succeed. Jim McKelvey experienced this problem first-hand while co-founding Square — eventually, he was forced to relocate the company. To address this problem, McKelvey started LaunchCode, a training and apprenticeship program, to enable businesses and local economies to thrive. In this session, McKelvey will discuss the tech talent gap, and share strategies for breaking free from outdated training paradigms.
