It’s a celebration of computer programming language and the IT industry. Erie Day of Code drew its largest crowd in its four-year history.
More than 150 guests came from across the country and even Canada. National speakers discussed technical skills and how to grow in their professions.
With initiatives like the Erie Innovation District, an event organizer says the technology industry is growing in the region. Sara Sheehan, Co-organizer of the Erie Day of Code, says, “Industries are starting to realize how important it is and how much that they really want to emphasize this and something that they want to train their employees how to do.”
Code Erie puts on the conference and holds monthly meetings.
