Watch my interview with tech leader La’Shon as she gives insight into her career journey.
In addition to networking and panel discussion events, ABI.Chicago’s signature program, the Learn A Language Series, teaches Intro & Intermediate programming in multiple languages to adults. And because it’s their 30th anniversary, they are especially excited about the Grace Hopper Celebration in Orlando in October. Plus, many of the chapters including Chicago will have Viewing Parties. So take a look at the website and the upcoming events. Membership is free. There are currently 20 global chapters so one of them is probably close to you!
