2018 West Virginia Coding & Cyber Summit

TechConnect West Virginia will host the West Virginia Coding & Cyber Summit from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 15 at the Charleston Marriott Hotel in Charleston, WV. 

Featuring leading industry and educational leaders, the Summit aims to highlight West Virginia’s efforts to develop a workforce ready to fill the thousands of available jobs in software coding and cybersecurity. This year’s event will place special emphasis on the cybersecurity sector and its workforce needs.

Across the U.S. – and in West Virginia – there is a huge demand for software coding and cybersecurity workers, and that number is expected to climb sharply as technology continues to advance at an exponential rate.  In response, key industry and education leaders in the Mountain State have joined forces to generate new ideas for a strategic plan focused on cyber workforce development. An overview of this plan will be provided, and tech experts also will share best practices and industry standards.  And, learn about new, innovative tech training programs available in West Virginia, including those that provide industry-recognized certificates and tech credentials.

Join us on November 15 to be a part of how West Virginia is diversifying its economy and preparing workers for coding, cyber and other tech jobs.
