AnderTech's Tech Education team has launched a new initiative called Tech Bytes. Tech Bytes are peer-led technical skills-building workshops featuring bite-sized topics that can be taught in 1-2 hours. Instructors are UCLA Anderson students from the MBA and FEMBA programs who have prior experience in technology roles and are passionate about sharing knowledge to help their peers break into tech.
In our first Tech Bytes, Sarah Zou (MBA 2019) taught the basics of software development, including the differences between frontend, backend, and APIs. Students then had the opportunity to apply these concepts to building an Android mobile application using AppInventor.
Future Tech Bytes will be posted on the website calendar, in Campus Groups, and in the WHAT newsletter! We look forward to seeing you there!
If you are interested in teaching a Tech Bytes workshop or have workshop topic suggestions, please reach out to Kartik Jain or Judy Pham.
