Akron Software Developers Guild Reboot
Aug 7th, 2014 by Sarah Dutkiewicz

From our friend Jerry D’Antonio….

As the summer winds to a close it’s time to ramp up the Guild’s activities again. It’s also a good time to perform an agile retrospective, talk about what’s worked well, reflect on where we have new opportunities, and reboot the group.

We’d love to form a small group of dedicated meetup organizers to actively manage the group. Anyone interested in being a co-organizer is welcome.

If you are interested in being involved but can’t attend the meeting please feel free to reach out to me over Twitter. You can find me at @jerrydantonio.

Announcing the Software Craftsmanship Guild
May 1st, 2013 by Sarah Dutkiewicz

One of the goals I have for this year is to help boost the quality of developers that we have in the area.  My friend Eric Wise is one of the guys behind the Software Craftsmanship Guild, a program to help learn top-notch development skills and possibly lead to a job in the industry.  I asked Eric for a bit more on his program, so read on! – Sarah

Learn Professional Software Development Skills the Right Way!

We are the Software Craftsmanship Guild based in the Akron Global
Business Accelerator building in downtown Akron!  Our goal is to bring
more qualified software developers into the region to meet the explosive
job demand the field has been seeing in Cleveland and well… pretty
much everywhere.  We do this by having real working professionals
teaching skills based on real world exercises.  Our apprentices come out
knowing how enterprise development works and with a code portfolio to
prove it!

So whether you are an IT student who needs some real world experience to
break in, a career changer who doesn’t want to spend 2 years and tens of
thousands of dollars sitting in a classroom, an existing professional
who needs a jump-start to modern skills, or an entrepreneur looking to
dive in and get understanding of the craft we welcome you to apply
now at our site.

Our teaching focuses on being able to take a data driven application
from start-to-finish. So here’s a smattering of the specific
technologies we learn with:

* C#
* WCF Services
* HTML/JavaScript (jQuery, Knockout, jQuery UI, JSON data)
* ASP.NET MVC (Razor)
* SQL Server (T-SQL, Basics of Indexing, Relational Design,
Backup/Recovery, SSIS/SSRS)
* Unit Testing/TDD, Source Control

Tools we use:

* Visual Studio Pro (2012)
* SQL Server 2012
* JetBrains Resharper
* Nunit
* Moq
* Fiddler
* Balsamiq
* and others!

Programming concepts we explore:

* SOLID principles
* layered architecture (enterprise patterns)
* design patterns (strategy, observer, state, etc)
* iterative development/minimum viable product
* basics of UX and wire-framing

The best part is, we are so confident that those we accept into the
program will be successful that we do not charge the full fee until you
find a job in IT.

Our June cohort is filling up, applications are accepted until June 1st
so apply now!  http://www.swcguild.com
