Hey "idea guy," "business gal," and "product person." If you've spent time in the tech community, you've said or heard people say "I Need A Technical Co-Founder!" too many times.
While many entrepreneurs, creative professionals, and teams have great ideas, they often lack the confidence and knowhow needed to help turn their ideas into reality. Stop relying on others and learn the skills needed to build & lead a tech startup!
Nate will share his personal experience and tips he used to successfully learn how to program, and for holdouts who may believe it would be better that "someone else" build their application, Nate will put them in their place.
This class will offer several resources for learning the basics, as well as advice on how to craft the best curriculum to fit your goals. Building a roadmap of goals, finding helpful online resources, and knowing individuals that can help you are all ways to ensure you become a true programmer/hacker (or close enough!).
This class will be a short lecture, followed by time for students to discuss their particular goals for learning programming.
Pre-Requisites: Come to class prepared with questions, problems you've faced trying to learn coding, and goals in mind for what you want to learn. If you want to follow along with the instructor, bring your laptop.
Maker of Things. Lover of People.
Nate Westheimer is the Executive Director of the NY Tech Meetup, Advisor to Flybridge Capital Partners, former co-founder of AnyClip and BricaBox, and last Fall he learned how to code, building Ohours.org by himself, and recently sold the company to Hirelite.com
