Meet + Hire Web Developers


Tue, October 24, 2017
3:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT


Tech Collective

Don't miss out! Local companies like GE Digital, Worldways, Datarista, and more local companies have already hired from previous General Assembly classes. 

We invite you to come meet graduates who are trained in today’s most relevant programming languages, tools, and techniques — like JavaScript, Rails, and APIs.
