Being a software developer has tremendous value in our current society. This trend will very likely only strengthen in coming years, as software development skills gained in one language or framework branch out into adjacent, exciting areas of innovation and growth.

Consistent with feeding this vision, StartFast Code and The Google Developer Group of the Capital Region, in collaboration with Saratoga Economic Development Corporation, are hosting a technology-focused networking, mentoring and hands-on event. The event is being held on July 27 at ESC on West Ave. from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

The purposes of the event are to:

  1. Highlight the value of learning the ubiquitous Javascript language and its ecosystem, based on its many diverse application domains
  2. Provide access to software development professionals in-person at the event, and
  3. Provide access to hand-on experience with technologies associated with Javascript via Google-sponsored Code-labs (Bring your laptops! Thanks Google!)
  4. Learn about the Coding Boot Camp starting in Saratoga County in September!

In addition to securing financial futures with its value proposition, engaging in software development can be the single most freeing and self-actualizing experience you will have, enabling an expression of creativity unparalleled with most other skill sets. We hope you will join us to see how you can change your future with the power of code – starting with the Javascript ecosystem.


6:30pm – 7:00pm: Opening remarks, testimonials and origin stories
7:00pm – 7:30pm: Discussion of use cases of Javascript and overview of associated libraries and frameworks, including Node.js
7:30pm – 8:30pm: Hands-on code labs and small group discussions to learn more about applications and development with Javascript and Node.js. Oh yeah, and a big “Thank You!” for growing the Capital Region Tech community!

StartFast Code changes futures with the #POWER_OF_CODE.
