Ian Mariano, Constructive Director of Technology & Projects, has been asked to speak to students at The Flatiron School on April 20th, 2016.
Ian will be giving an abbreviated version of his 2016 Nonprofit Technology Conference presentation, Tell the Developers the Story! in which he explored why letting the developers in on the the big picture of an organization’s mission as early as possible is the best great way to create an environment in which they can share the enthusiasm, vision, ownership, and care for what’s being built, and understand how their work will result in a better product that drives greater social impact.
The Flatiron School trains passionate, creative people in web and mobile development. They bring together people with diverse perspectives and backgrounds who are passionate about technology—from investment bankers and spinal surgeons to cartoonists and sky-diving instructors. Flatiron School graduates now work as software developers in companies like The New York Times, Kickstarter, Etsy, and Google after taking their 12 week, full-time Web and iOS Immersive courses. They also partnered with New York City to launch the NYC Web Development Fellowship and provide free training to underrepresented groups in the tech community.
