Hey, Dallas! Tech events, new instructors at The Iron Yard

It’s a busy day (actually, a busy month!) on our Dallas campus, as we’re hard at work prepping to welcome people for events, courses, info sessions, workshops and more.

First, we’re proud to be hosting several #DSW17 events, including the DSW17 Workshop: Google ‘Android Things’ Operating System Overview – this Friday at noon. In addition to several information sessions and free crash courses (check out our Meetup page here for the latest!), we’re also welcoming two new instructors to our campus – Ato Mensah and Douglas Hirsh.

Today, we want to introduce you to Ato and Douglas. They both have impressive resumes and experience, but they also each bring a unique energy to campus and we know that future students will benefit from learning with them. They also both want students to understand the value of learning how to learn. Below, meet Ato and Douglas.  Read More

Team member spotlight: Meet Eric Sowell, Dallas instructor

It’s been a pretty busy year for us so far in 2016. Today we want to introduce you to one of our new instructors, Eric Sowell. He’s going to be teaching our first Dallas Front-End Engineering course, and he recently wrote an awesome blog post about his journey to The Iron Yard. From seminary to authoring a book on mobile web development to working with Match.com, Eric’s story is a great read for people interested in a career change.
