January 7, 2014 – NY Tech Meetup (NYTM) today announced a partnership with The Flatiron School, a New York-based educational institution that trains aspiring web developers. The school will provide NYTM with two full-time Hackers-in-Residence: Saron Yitbarek and Vinney Cavallo, both of whom are graduates of The Flatiron School’s Fall 2013 class. As NYTM’s first Hackers-in-Residence, Saron and Vinney will be building and updating web-based products that provide value to NY Tech Meetup’s members and to the community as a whole, and serving as community ambassadors.
“We’re very thankful for the support of The Flatiron School, and are excited to be working with Saron and Vinney. Their work will not only benefit the members of NY Tech Meetup but the New York tech community at large,” said Jessica Lawrence, Executive Director of NYTM. “As a growing non-profit organization, the technical platforms we offer our members from our website to our portal for women in technology are of growing importance. We’re looking forward to their work helping us to promote, diversify, and support our community.”
“Our dream in starting the Flatiron School was to create a sustainable talent pipeline for the New York Tech Community and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with NYTM to continue building the technology ecosystem in New York. As a New York-based web development school, we know firsthand the tremendous impact that NYTM has had in galvanizing the local technology community, and we’re thrilled to partner with them so that they can continue that tradition,” said Avi Flombaum of The Flatiron School. “Saron and Vinney were both outstanding students, and we’re excited that they have been given this opportunity to shine.”
