Starting a Career in Cybersecurity - My Thoughts on the Cybersecurity Foundations Course by SANS

How can you start a career in cybersecurity? Where do you start and how do you approach it? What can you study to get a solid foundation in cybersecurity that will help you kick start your career in the industry? We’ve talked about this on multiple occasions on this channel, so you know that I truly believe that you can get into this awesome field no matter what background you have. And this time I’ve been able to witness that myself - I took the SANS Foundations course in cybersecurity, which you may have seen me vlogging about last week.

Summer Creative Coding Clubs for Girls in Grades 3-8! shared by Romina

Romina says:

Code/Art's CodeHER clubs are all about equipping the next generation of female technologists. Our intro-level clubs use art as on-ramp to spark interest and break pre conceived notions about what a computer programmer looks like or what their interests are. During this 9-week program (weekly 90 min. sessions) students will learn Javascript, Scratch, Tinkercad and finish the program with their own portfolio of coded art projects. If you have a daughter, niece or little sister who you want to introduce to coding in a fun way, then make sure to register her before May 21st (for early bird discount). Code/Art is a 501(c)(3) with the mission to increase the number of girls studying computer science by delighting and inspiring them with the creative possibilities of computer programming.
