OpenHub's Fast Track Web Dev Bootcamp is the only webdev boot camp in the Hudson Valley. The curriculum focuses on essential, in-demand skills and is based on industry best practices to stay current and relevant to today’s job market.

Companies rely on technology everyday, but sometimes that technology fails us. Computers break, systems fail, phones die; and when that happens, we need experts to fix them. IT support is all about troubleshooting and problem solving when the tech fails, and providing great customer service along the way.

Google has long faced an issue that many other companies also contend with -- had open IT Support roles, and not enough qualified candidates to fill them. So, a few years ago Google began working with a non-profit organization to build out trainings and pathways to roles in technical support at Google. This way we  learned that not only is IT support a highly teachable field, but that we could teach someone completely new to the industry the IT fundamentals in under six months. So, Google built an IT training program on Coursera, created entirely by Googlers who are expert in IT support, so that this training could be available to everyone.

There is no background knowledge necessary!

Meet Ups:

Every month we mix and mingle,  getting together around technology to share and co-learn together, discussing an advanced topic or working on some projects in collaboration setup. There is usually no mentor,, but lightning talks or presenter.
