Cohort XIII Graduates

April, 19th 2019

Thank you to Valeria Benetti, the Production Support Engineer from Clarity Services, who will be speaking at Demo Day.

Thank you to Daniel James Scott, COO & Executive Director, and Tampa Bay Tech. Tampa Bay Tech is Florida's largest technology council whose mission is to empower Florida’s largest tech hub by collaborating with Tampa Bay’s largest and fastest-growing tech companies and their value-chain partners.

Thank you to our sponsor Clarity Services, a part of Experian, is a specialty credit bureau based in Clearwater, FL. Over the years, Clarity has been a big supporter of SDG by hiring graduates (4) and enrolling our own staff as an in-service training. Now that Clarity is a part of Experian, they continue to support SDG by both considering graduates and supporting students by way of full sponsorships.

After their 12-week journey to becoming Full-Stack Developers, our students have grown their technical skills. These students have gone from little to no experience to learning HTML/CSS, JavaScript, React and then diving into a back-end technology stack to round out their full-stack understanding. We are proud to present to you our graduating students from Cohort XIII.
