“Hidden Figures” Film Inspires Cleveland’s Next Generation of Women & Minorities in Tech Fields

“Hidden Figures” Film Inspires Cleveland’s Next Generation of Women & Minorities in Tech Fields CLEVELAND, OH (January 6, 2017)   Most of us know about John Glenn and Neil Armstrong – but few know that a group of brilliant African-American women mathematicians working at NASA helped Glenn become the first American to orbit the earth in the historic 1962 launch in the space race against Russia. That’s the untold story behind the new 21st Century Fox film Hidden Figures, released nationwide on January 6. Here in Cleveland, the film shines a light on the growing need to include women and minorities in science, technology, engineering and math – particularly in IT and software development.

Cierra Starts a New Career as a Mobile Developer

Cierra Starts a New Career as a Mobile Developer After a search of coding bootcamps across the country, Cierra decided to attend We Can Code IT in Cleveland, OH. A collaborative learning environment helped her in the classroom and then the supportive staff reassured her that she was capable of thriving after graduation. Shortly after graduating, she started her new career as a mobile developer at ABAS-USA close to home in Virginia.

“After the We Can Code IT on-site training at University Hospitals, we embraced Agile software development methodology with tremendous success. On a project that was not going well, we were able to develop 1-week iterations where we did a mini-planning session on Monday, committed to stories for the week and then completely tested them by the end of the week. Our teams have really enjoyed moving to a more structured Agile environment with much more collaboration.”

– Andy Laytin, Manager, IT Development, SQL DBAs Architecture, University Hospitals

It takes 6 to 9 months to bring a new developer up to speed. In IT, recruiting top talent is super competitive. So it makes sense to train your internal talent pool, right? A great idea, but most companies find cross-training employees is time-consuming and demands training expertise they don’t always have.  We can help you with this process by applying our assessment tools.  These will help you find out which employees would be best for cross-training as well as which canidates are most adept to join your company.

When growth or turnover hits your IT team, research shows it costs a business about 20% of an employee’s salary to hire and train new talent. If a developer is paid in the neighborhood of $80–$120K —the hiring and training process costs your business up to $24K.*
