West Virginia Coding & Cyber Summit

October 12, 2017

TechConnectWV, in partnership with U.S. Senators Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito, will host the West Virginia Coding & Cyber Summit from 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 12 at the BridgeValley Advanced Technology Center in South Charleston, WV.

Hundreds of thousands of software coding and cyber jobs are unfilled in the U.S. right now, and that number is expected to climb sharply as technology continues to advance at an exponential rate.  Half of the highest-paying jobs in America now require some level of software coding skills, market analysis shows. The good news is that while many of these jobs require a four-year degree, thousands of jobs will be open to individuals who receive certification through multi-week boot camps.  

Join us on October 12 to learn more about the possibilities for West Virginia to prepare workers for these jobs.

  • West Virginia’s United States Senators will share their views on how West Virginia’s workforce can play a greater role in the high-tech economy
  • Hear about exciting new steps that are being taken to train a new high-tech workforce
  • Learn about successful training programs and potential employment opportunities in the areas of computer coding and cybersecurity
  • Listen to tech and gig-economy leaders about how West Virginians can benefit from the new virtual tech economy and workplace
  • Find ways to mobilize your communities to benefit from “hereshoring” job and economic development opportunities
