German BencciOPENING KEYNOTE: Tearing up the Certificates: The Measure Is Not the Target

Speaker: Germán Bencci, Founder, CodeYourFuture

Don't miss this Opening Keynote by Germán Bencci, Founder of CodeYourFuture, a tech community supporting disadvantaged people and refugees pursuing thriving careers in the tech industry. Germán will discuss how CodeYourFuture works to liberate learners from collecting endless pieces of paper and instead have them focus on building their own, individual, marketable skills.

At CodeYourFuture, they cancelled grading...and their outcomes improved. They give their learners the solutions and teach them how to review themselves. Their graduation criteria focuses on how their learners need to build the solutions, how they have to show them the solutions, if/how the solution fails, and what to do next.
