Meet Jo Lingenfelter for the first 5 Under 25 program of the year! Jo will share how she taught herself computer programming like a language, and will give an Xcode tutorial where participants will learn to code a simple program on Swift.
When? Tuesday, October 2, 12:15pm
Where? The Career Center
RSVP? Yes! RSVP on Handshake.
Jo Lingenfelter graduated from CC in 2015 with a degree in Italian…and without a firm plan of where to go next. Fast-forward to 2016, when Jo applied her skills in learning a language to an entirely new kind of communication: coding. By teaching herself to code as if she was learning a new language, Jo landed a job as an iOS Developer for Mobelux, an award-winning mobile and web software application development company. She now writes native code to develop mobile apps and web platforms for iOS and Android.
Join Jo for a small group conversation and an Xcode workshop, where you will learn to code a simple program in Swift. Jo will also share insights into the software and technology industries, and how the Block Plan prepared her for success after CC.
