Most people get into high tech via hard work, thoughtful mentors and good schools. But while techies exist in every school, not every school has the ability to train them for quality high-tech jobs. We are really proud of the partnership we have with Resilient Coders, an organization founded by David Delmar to teach coding skills to urban youth. This awesome non-profit works to train youth in underserved communities how to code through a series of programs that range from boot camps on web development fundamentals through to their Resilient Lab, where coders have the opportunity to work on actual customer projects.
The business was being managed with Excel spreadsheets and various outdated databases. We had to do something quickly. I had no experience with Quick Base, or any other database for that matter, and I knew I needed expert help to do it right.
