LaunchCode’s goal is to grow net new talent for Kansas City. We do this through world class education and job opportunities to help you launch your career in technology. We are extending that to include monthly professional development workshops, available to the anyone, at no charge. Though most topics will target developers early in their career, topics will vary widely from soft skills to UX to more technical topics. We expect those further along in their careers will benefit as well.
We welcome current, future and former LaunchCoders, developers from our company partners, those curious about LaunchCode, or anyone wanting to learn to come join us to meet others and move your career along!
Our second workshop is “Product Managers — a Developer's BFF”
At their core, Product Managers live in that crucial space between what customers want, and what engineers are focused on. They help clarify customers' needs and support a roadmap for product development. In this workshop, Vince Kane will share his experience as a Product Manager, as well as insights on the role Product Managers play to support the development team.
