GitHub and Turing School help build a stronger Colorado

Go Code Colorado just wouldn’t happen without the support of many in our tech and business community. As we continue to thank our partners who help us offer a great participant experience—which we deliver at no cost—we’d like to thank GitHub and the Turing School of Software & Design.

GitHub is the best place to share code with friends, co-workers, classmates, and complete strangers. And while not everyone is familiar with GitHub, millions of developers use it to build personal projects, support their businesses, and work together on open source technologies.

At its core, GitHub provides version control, a collaborative workflow, and a powerful platform for developers to work together. It allows individuals to understand not just what changes were made along the way, but who made them and why. GitHub also allows developers to propose new ideas, work together on code, and track bugs on one integrated platform.

GitHub is a Go Code Colorado partner for a second year. They generously provide stickers (oh, and private repositories for teams to work on during the competition and into the following year). GitHub’s own Devin Reams worked to set teams up and provide them a secure space to build their applications together. Thanks Devin and GitHub for your continued support.

Turing School of Software & Design is a professional software development school specialized in Web Application Development and Front-End Engineering. Turing is on a mission to unlock human potential by training a diverse, inclusive student body to succeed in high-fulfillment technical careers. Turing believes in a world powered by technology where the people building it represent the people using it. As a Colorado non-profit, Turing is guided solely by what will lead to the best learning experience for students.

Turing recently launched their second program—Front-End Engineering—created to build a strong foundation in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, matching graduates with careers that are currently in high-demand. Since 2014, Turing has trained 131 students to become Web Application developers. Within 120 days of program completion, 96 percent of graduates find full-time employment, with an average starting salary of $75,000 a year. Turing is 100 percent dedicated to student success.

Turing is a great partner for Go Code Colorado; we are looking forward to seeing their continued success in our community!
