VP of Careers

People from all walks of life can gain new skills, but all too often would-be students wrongly assume that their chances for technical careers expired after college. This session will share the stories of three working professionals across three continents who overcame stereotypes and completely transformed their careers to become successful developers.

VP of Careers

A tech career is possible for people from all walks of life, but many are deterred. You may be afraid to step into the field if you don’t fit the stereotypical “brogrammer” mold. You may stumble in your job search due to imposter syndrome, or because entry-level postings ask for a CS degree and years of experience. But all this can be overcome, faster than you think. Hear surprising new data on what works, how it can help build a more diverse tech workforce and how you can hack it as a hacker in under a year.

Behavioral Design: Hacking Human Behavior for Good

Tuesday, March 15 • 5:00pm – 6:00pm CT | SXSW Interactive, JW Marriott, Salon D

Zhalisa Clarke
Zhalisa Clarke

Director of Business Development

With: Deena Rosen, Behavioral Designer, Opower and Kelvin Kwong, Senior Product Manager, Jawbone

Behavioral design aims to help close the gap on big world issues that have yet to be cracked by policy, products or technology. This session will take behavioral minds behind Opower, Jawbone, Udacity, and Irrational Labs to discuss their current user behavior problems around energy use, education & health. These experts will address: what behavioral design actually means, how the world should apply it, how it has failed. They will collectively brainstorm solutions in front of the audience.
