Bootcamps can help launch new careers. Learn how to navigate program challenges from a Thinkful alum and impress employers after graduating.

About this event

Breaking into a career in software engineering is all about showing you've got the skills to make an impact from day one. The new normal? Career-focused bootcamps that are built around advancing or helping you break into high-paying industries faster than ever before. They provide an accessible way to more opportunities, more growth, and higher salaries.

Bootcamp courses come with their own challenges, but plenty of students have come before you, and they're ready to share valuable insights on excelling in our programs and hitting the ground running upon graduation.

Join us as we talk to a Thinkful graduate and explore the ways he made the most of his bootcamp experience and launched a successful career. We will dive into his Thinkful journey, the successful habits he created to stand out from the crowd, and how he ultimately got hired at his dream job.

About the Speaker:

Peter Correa has now worked as a Software Engineer for two different companies, but developing web applications and frameworks wasn't always on his career trajectory. In his early years, he worked as a Technical Specialist for Apple, which is where the seeds of interest in technology may have been planted. After that experience, he followed the traditional education path, earning a Bachelor in Liberal Arts & Sciences from Florida International University and going on to work as a Senior Manager at Target.
However, after 5 years in that role, he decided that it was time for a career change which led him to Thinkful's Software Engineering program. Today Peter works as a Software Engineer for PayPal where he is working to unify all existing services to GraphQL, ultimately creating a new shopping experience that will bring value to consumers by making it easier for them to shop for products on the app.

The success of today's digital transformation strategies must include business optimization. How do critical processes perform? What are the most frequently used process paths? Which are the most efficient? Are resources optimized? Where are the bottlenecks? What sort of fraud and compliance violations are occurring?

Process mining is a data-driven approach that answers these questions objectively, delivering powerful, actionable insights to process stakeholders via rich visual analytics.

Combined with a no-code method, insights into processes are turned into automated actions used to resolve underlying issues and improve inefficiency. Building (configuring) application logic is simple, turning everyone into a developer.

Join Nicolas Marzin, head of TIBCO's Office of the CTO EMEA, to learn how Project Discover helps business users discover, document, and improve operational processes by combining analytics and no-code for a #better-together experience.

Code Tampering: 4 Keys to Risk Reduction

IF YOU'D LIKE TO JOIN LIVE AND/OR GET A COPY OF THE RECORDING, MAKE SURE TO SIGN UP HERE (AND NOT JUST ON MEETUP): https://cycode.com/risk-reduction

Thur, July 28th, 2021
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST

Code tampering is a software company's worst nightmare. Unfortunately, 2021 has been the year that this nightmare has come true from many organizations. In fact, code tampering has led to new major supply chain attacks nearly every month: SolarWinds, Accellion, Mimecast, Click Studios, PHP, CodeCov, and Kaseya.

These incidents make it clear that the attackers are targeting DevOps tools and infrastructure just as hard as production applications. Attackers are now looking for any entry point into the victim's SDLC and then seeking to expand laterally across each phase to tamper with code and push it live into production without detection. Ironically, DevOps automation that increases release efficiency also makes it easier for attackers to move laterally as each system becomes more tightly interconnected.

After an overview of code tampering, and learnings from recent incidents, this webinar will propose a four-pillar approach to reducing code tampering risk:

Increasing integrity: Confirming files & artifacts across each phase of the SDLC
Anomaly detection: Connecting dots from disparate systems to identify breaches
Critical code monitoring: Determining which code to monitor for any and all changes
Defense in depth: Applying security and governance policies across DevOps tools and cloud infrastructure.

It's common to work with inputs and forms in React, but there aren't any good solutions from the big 3 libraries. Many times, it's just simpler to write your own simple wrapper.

Even still, it'd be nice to have something super simple to help manage forms and that's what I built: OneForm; the one form library you'll need. It does everything for you, and allows you to extend it as-necessary.

"Cloud Native" doesn't always mean containerization. Teams are adopting cloud native design principals on workloads that span across multiple workload runtimes including Kubernetes AND virtual machines.

So often when we talk about application modernization and service mesh – we focus on the Kubernetes world, but did you know Kuma.io (OSS) and Kong Mesh provide virtual machines with native, first-class support as well?

Join Cody De Arkland, Engineer from Kong's Office of the CTO, as he takes us through how we can deploy Kuma and Kong Mesh into a multi-zone deployment supporting Kubernetes workloads as well as Virtual Machine workloads. We'll show how service mesh allows developers and operators to create a consistent, policy-driven approach to application connectivity in a multi-cloud world.

Avoiding risk when moving legacy apps to the cloud
Live Webinar + Q&A
Tue, July 27, 10:00 AM
Eastern Daylight Time

Almost every established and mature organization will have some legacy systems that are critical to their success. And yet, since these systems are frequently quite old, they no longer work well in the modern world – they may lag behind comparable tools in features and convenience.

Even when a replacement is found, many organizations put off the migration for as long as possible until they no longer can, as it is often viewed as risky and expensive.

Join us on this webinar to learn about:

Why would you want to migrate your legacy application to the cloud
Common migration approaches
Ways to make the migration faster and painless
How to minimize risk during the migration process

To meet the challenge, surveys find that 95% of universities recognize AI to be a significant opportunity.

Efforts with AI are well underway, with the global AI in the education market estimated to reach $25.7B in 2030, up from $1.1B in 2019. CIOs and data teams have a crucial role to play in this transformation, as they identify high-impact use cases for AI in Higher Education.

Join this session with Kamalika Sandell, CIO at NJIT, former CIO at American University; Joe Flynn, Public Sector CTO at Boomi; and Vijay Anand, CMO at Aible, on Thursday, July 29 at 10am PT | 1pm ET where they discuss:

-The current landscape for schools and universities and the most common challenges for higher education

-How higher education can use AI to solve pressing use cases such as student enrollment and retention, donor prioritization, faculty performance, and asset utilization

-Best practices to get started with AI and how to ensure impact

*** Please RSVP on Eventbrite to receive an email with your customized webinar link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/thinkful-webinar-uxui-design-wireframes-and-prototypes-tickets-158661907035?aff=Meetup ***

Wireframes and prototypes are two of the most foundational pieces of the UX/UI Design Process, but creating your first version (or several!) of each can feel a little intimidating. How do you even get started? What separates good wireframes from bad ones? And how do you take your basic wireframes to working prototypes that will impress the rest of your team?

Join us for this hands-on workshop where we'll break down best practices of wireframing and prototyping in UX/UI Design, examine some different use cases from out in the wild, and use Figma to apply what you'll learn to a real-world example.

What you will learn:

Why UX/UI skills are so in-demand
Guiding principles for good wireframes
Hands-on experience with Figma for prototyping
And much more...

How to join us: Once you register with Eventbrite, you will receive an email with the links to the live webinar from BigMarker. If you do not receive your link, please email virtual@thinkful.com.
