1406 Student Profiles - Jonmichael Chambers

We’re talking with our students to learn a little bit more about how and why they came to Turing, and why they want to be developers. We’d love for you to get to know them, too. Meet Jonmichael Chambers. Susannah : Tell us why you wanted to become a developer. Jonmichael : It goes way back to when I was 8 or 9 years old. I was on AOL and someone had a little webpage they made with HTML that they were hosting and I thought, I want to make something like that, so I started learning. I’ve always been interested in programming. Susannah : What were you doing before Turing?...

1406 Student Profiles - Chad Brading

We’re talking with our students to learn a little bit more about how and why they came to Turing, and why they want to be developers. We’d love for you to get to know them, too. Meet Chad Brading. Susannah : Tell me a little bit about yourself, Chad, and what you were doing before you came to Turing. Chad : Well, right before I came to Turing I was in a physics studies program in Germany for about seven months. Before that I was working in Charlotte for an investment banking company for about a year. That was my first job out of college. Susannah : What motivated you to leave your...

1406 Student Profiles - Corey Davis

We’re talking with our students to learn a little bit more about how and why they came to Turing, and why they want to be developers. We’d love for you to get to know them, too. Meet Corey Davis. Susannah : Corey, you were in the area already prior to coming to Turing, right? Tell us a little more about why you wanted to become a developer and what you were up to before coming to Turing. Corey : Well before Turing I was a teacher. I taught eighth-grade science. I’ve been teaching middle school for about six years, and honestly I’ve been searching for something else...

Alan Turing and Diversity

People have asked why we chose the name "Turing". Yes, it's after Alan Turing, but why? He's of course an important figure in the history of computer science and the world. His team at Bletchley Park played a critical role in cracking Germany's "Enigma" machine during WWII which helped turned the tide in the Allies favor. But the second and just-as-important reason is his death. In 1952, Turing was convicted of "gross indecency" for his relationship with another man. While there are some alternative theories, it's generally accepted that the...

Turing Community Nights

TL;DR: Join our new Turing Community series on Meetup We believe that becoming a developer is about more than writing code -- we need to build community while we build software. When I started Jumpstart Lab I committed to being aggressively open . Since the beginning all Jumpstart Lab tutorials have been open source . Without the thousands of contributors who've put hours into the open source tools and technologies we rely on, there would never have been a Jumpstart Lab in the first place. With Turing we're excited to continue that tradition. We run an in-person training program...
