Coding for GOOD: Why Businesses Need to Participate in Educating Not Just Recruiting

"In a nutshell, rather than pay a fleet of talent recruiters or sift through volumes of resumes to find our next developer, we’ve worked with Apollo Group to create our own 16-lesson online curriculum at good.is/codingforgood that will teach anyone — from novice to veteran — the essential coding skills required to begin a career on our tech team. Our CTO, Doug Sellers, helped build the curriculum, and we very gratefully got our friends at Twitter, Electronic Arts, SoundCloud, Grooveshark and HUGE to teach video lessons around key topics.”

Thanks, Chelsea
