Our Summit County TechHire community is participating in one of the largest online coding events of the year exclusively for TechHire bootcamps and nontraditional schools – the first ever TechHire CodeSprint! The CodeSprint is first and foremost an opportunity for your students to showcase their skills to employers looking to hire.
The coders will have 48 hours to prove how well they can code by solving 8 new challenges, ranging from basic programming to advanced algorithms. Learn more here. The Top 200 coders will win a combined $10,000 in prizes and have the opportunity to directly showcase their skills to employers who are hiring.
