The Tech Jargon workshop is a one-day interactive hands-on workshop designed to help participants gain understanding of the main categories within the IT sector and to grasp technical concepts and the relations between them.
With the help of a visual card game and led by a software engineer, participants have to find the true meaning of each technical term and how they relate to each other in small teams.
The workshop covers in depth the following topics:
- Programming languages and frameworks
- Front end and back end technologies
- Operating Systems
- Web and Mobile technologies
- Softwares and Hardwares
- Cloud technologies
The training 's agenda includes:
- First challenge: in small teams, try to allocate the different terms in the right categories with the help of visual cards
- Second phase: let's move things around! The mentor will check the results of the small challenge, and will explain the categories and the different terms. Through interactive explanations you will get the broader picture of the IT world and will understand the terms you got right and wrong and why.
- Q&A part: you will receive lots of info and many questions will pop in your head! No worries, there is time to clarify doubts as well
