The title of this activity is Thinkful Webinar: Getting Started in Tech and it was sponsored by Eventbrite and Webinar. The activity was on Tuesday November 27th in Philadelphia, PA. I learned a lot about different technological careers and how I can get started in these careers as an MIS major. For example, I learned about how coding plays a role in many tech careers because Javascript and HTML are important, which are skills that I learned in one of my classes this semester. These coding skills are a necessary background for jobs such as a front-end developer. Additionally, I learned that for most tech positions it is helpful to have a background in data mining tools such as R studio. This relates to my coursework this semester because we learned how to operate R studio, and we learned a lot of information about data mining. Lastly, this webinar relates to my career goals because I hope to become a front-end developer or data analyst in my future career, so this webinar helped me understand these careers more and provided me with insight into how to start in these careers.
