Our First Student Showcase!

Each cohort of ACLTC culminates with our Student Showcase. Our Student Showcase is like a career fair turned on its head: Our students each have a “booth” where they display their projects as well as themselves, and representatives from various tech companies visit and make their way around to each student. Resumes and business cards are exchanged, and succulent refreshments are enjoyed! Our first Student Showcase was a great success, and we were fortunate to have visitors from many Chicago tech companies who were really impressed with our students and their projects. Companies included Ifbyphone, Sprout Social, Fooda, Recsolu, AvantCredit, Vail Systems, HomeFinder, and more. Thank you to all for attending! Below are some pictures from this exciting event. Thanks to 1871 for hosting as well as the pictures!
