and you know the the the the head of the the the the the I did my I was really excited the
use of the words the words Brown you probably know him as the sexiest voice member he was be in the outfield here so the ice is been gas is this really do the embassy or as being cast yeah there is debate on on video we've got a commitment the rise the US so as I do it out with most speakers I was I was we're out last night the party I ask them sorry feeling nervous but it's up tomorrow and most speakers would say yeah Ienaga work on the slides of film you know this public speaking you know a nervous by excited the Morris says are you kidding me I open for Bill-Clinton in front of 20 thousand people Chicago OK I think member companies is nothing so yes they are so you ever experienced speaker rusting away from a so thank you all for allowing me to speak about my decidedly nontechnical time with I really do appreciate it of 1 and 2 talk about a little experiment that I had a teaching Embratur to some underprivileged kids so I hate being the person between everyone and what's alterity this brief but hopefully you glean some good information from it so this is me everyone knows
that and if you like a sticker I have those it it is that we not a joke if you look at the time of time there's a hand up and I work is in the skin in my job is I'm
over the platform accommodate the so here so interested yes we are hiring the back
so you can go talk to her and some also
said that I am the voice of the hot seat of pattern so everyone here has been asked me when the next hot see this is when you sign up and come on the show and so please do not be afraid you know that's you know be shy I would love to have you come all the so 1 of Golding's is about working as a
nurse is that there there were in in San Francisco it's called market and the 10 1 and part of the agreement that we have is that we actually have to be active participants in the community but to receive some sort of benefits but but most companies as writer taken hold everything goes goes swimmingly but that's not good enough resent us what we do is that we actually take our expertise and our abilities out to the community and try to make it better so for example of some engineers have built that application so that people that are less fortunate can can decide will can find out what resources are available to them at various points in time we built for this and 1 tech lad of and get all 1 to expose a from its its engineers focus up myself was a whole bunch of articles and things like that this is 1 of the examples that helped you know as a company we really really take such a heart that we want to to make the area and the people around us much better right is very that if you will so 1 day I was actually reading an article about home it was talking about unemployment in the
Bay area and if anybody the guys from the area you know this kind of a little bit things intention going on up to now have and have-nots so unemployment in the Bay Area has about 6 comma decimal 1 per cent if you wanted effects figures actually isn't sources here and something a really struck me is that the unemployment rate for a taste 26 in the 19 overworking that 20 comma decimal 7 per cent pretty pretty hot but and if my demographic right for a for a for African Americans in the Bay Area that for that same demographic 38 per cent of them are unemployed right arm and then for people that are over southeast asian descent that number jumps of the 54 per cent of the more than half of the people that are in our area in the Tenderloin on that are in this age range art don't have a job so the combat all these things I
know if you you all probably but in some of these boot camps by the hacker academies and they they don't really well we've actually hired a few of these students out of these cohorts to come and work is and that's right you learn about web development for under a fold wheat he pays some x amount of money replay parties salary and then you know hopefully at end the the the the program reacts to get a job but unfortunately that's not really accessible to a lot of people right about at they don't have 10 thousand dollars have been 8 weeks to take operate and so what I wanted to do that debt to come up with something that we kind of mirror that right of and we all know in the tech industry that there is no sort of of jobs are they have gas you're hiring right now some servers restaurant yeah exactly right so so in the
base of the last month detectors the 14 thousand jobs at right over 25 per cent of those were just tech ways so the opportunity there is is the Mets so I figured in though you know create a program that did some summation 5 so CSS so J. S. and J. query maybe if I had signed into rail sorry the and the the maybe there's because I really don't see how I can make the leap of between JavaScript and rebels yes from the wrong will this so
hope about with some of the engineers and engineering managers and and try to figure out you know how can I create a program that's actually engaging and doesn't put the kids to sleep
right but because you know kids are like like the cat laser pointer right this is like the next thing it will adjust them in their offices this to it's a something else so we came this this this curriculum so
that would teach them a similar basics right so what is HTML what is the down now would so you trying to figure out how to explain what the dam is to a kid but has this it is not the easiest thing in the world right but then we went through the some basic site infrastructure I had to do a box model stuff I had a mark of what actually is marked by some topography stuff so Madam making links and images and include audio video I going through this this this whole exercise made me feel like I was back on my space right like and I'm a kid learned it how had a create make my main goal bold for the 1st time right that but the next thing that you know don't through some basic you know what is CSS so we took all the elements that that we we we laid out on a page just is blank and n and you know apply some of the CSS properties of atoms so and so we went through this not talk how would bootstrap was which again 1 those things where you'd be surprised that the kids actually they resonate with certain topics more than others and for them bootstrap actually makes sense I had no clue how that how that is but but it is too hot and then the the big scary part right which is our teeth and jobs spirit and trying to teach someone would object-orientation is when they haven't really even had like basic algebra was a little bit too often and it took me about probably 3 or 4 weeks before they actually get but once they did we're able to to to build a few you know I thought that we can build some of these projects are it's 1st thing I want them to do is build a portfolio sack right because we all know as developers is not just bits and bytes we actually have to market ourselves the Social this in that but you know build a photo gallery would J. query of building to do list was just plain JavaScript and then if we had time to go ahead and build the blogs and user reviews rails so I got this curriculum together and figure like hey did some students so we work with the Vietnamese youth development center of black gross code which is a wonderful national organization and I love so you that everything was all
roses unicorns and that at the end of this they also there started to
millions of dollars but like any
journey there's a little bit of pain itself it all that's got that will always was lowered so hope so not to sound too much like like the dangers minds any of that like nineties you know teacher goes into horrible high school and you know gives them the ability to do calculus into we can think of you know it was difficult just being a teacher it was more than just cold there were days that I know for a fact that of the students hours in here across and we didn't there were days where they couldn't come to class because they had matters at home to tend to or you know it at the school the school's on log out for hours because there was a shooting outside you know these are the types of things that you have to deal with when you deal with the population that that that the demographic that I don't with and fortunately for me I can relate to certain things the dBASE awful things up on my background but it's still tough right you wanna you wanna show the kids that you know the state could be just a a few more weeks you you have this light at the end of the tunnel of it is really hard for them to see that when they're going to so many things that that personally effect so enough of the tear-jerker of the other than realized typing is hard and
you know use a lot of characters in the text and you think that you this is 1 those things were I realize that now but that there were going to be doing more more iterations of this program only had to give a typing test and is 1 of things were
like you just have to practice so we are gap as well as Atle I worried about my obviously urban references would you guys got this article but yeah those little things the readers edges just have to practice and no there's something to rote learning right where where you just teach a kid like this is where the the left angle bracket is this is where the fight light when it is and you have to grow a graph the right this is a wonderful words that are found and it really helps out so and as as I
as I alluded to before explaining kind of the fundamentals of how the Web works is extremely difficult right now there's really no real world examples that you can generally kids to that they would understand and I'm always at the time of only 29 after like you know I can relate to kids that now man a fellow like I felt like listen to my mom talk about like they wouldn't need answers the cherries slang for the 1st time right and it is this I realize I'm not as cool as I once thought was which is unfortunate but the great thing the positive thing about this is that like kids odd naturally inquisitive
right and they want to be able to find cuts so 1 day while we're going through you know how to build pages and things like that when student asked me and said hey I do we always have to copy and paste this stuff every time that we make a new like thank you got your vendor sensor I was like I was waiting for someone you know you want the money they give you lose those leading question so you could say actually you don't see it and here's how you can do this so I thought about it and that was
created to air and he had a
talk called rise of the clients that he gave at the San Francisco meet the at not that took this from this talk so don't don't they don't like science and graphic designs of but essentially in a stalking you said that you know you go through the paces of web development and eventually you get to the point where it's like I need a little bit to do something dynamic right and as that previously the choices where are we can do do something in PHP but but what are a wider wider we need to do that and this this proposition this is a part this is that the time was while we use image yes' a disease I there's a better ever developed and I so I will try this out and see how it resonates with the kids and you know we did something like this with the static
pages right you know we had a few fear out and what I show them this that they didn't have to copy and paste the the entire cold all the time for a new page of digital crazy right this this development pages and in asking questions in in really a figure out of you know how they can get more involved in in in it with member so that you know they can do the things that they have inside of there which is amazing so I 1 of the assignments that we had was actually built to do what's right and this is the wrong go there and so we had an opportunity to to build to to do list of just JavaScript and no 1 of students said the virus and is the opportunity can we do this with Amber set of
awesome you can to put that and you know this is a testament to the community and and that the the utility that provides but but you know a lot of you play about the dogs out that there enough but I'm Teijin 14 to 16 old headed the JavaScript with with and they understand and they get it from just what's on the website and I think you know the I think is a testament to the framework that that that allows people to to to get productive and they understand so what we were doing this I could
actually see the gears standing in a lot of people's lives and 1 of 1 of the the young girls in particular that she I mean she was amazing not of a rock and a leg in a where they now that a thing but she went home
and we went through all the tutorials and if I went through the that introduction to embarass stuff of so she built a ball and obviously she had some form of bootstrap and and and allow the CSS things so she redid her to do lists inside of over the course of the the website of and she redid her photo gallery which was for me it was quite amazing I also what I forgot to do the details like our talk haven't you get so she puts everything up and then sent me a link to the repo and said look at what acted acid Thank you Jesus it so we talk about this kind like
natural pattern progress and I alluded to before is that you know it's really easy for us to teach children how to DAC CSS registers markup right they just put stuff on a page you move around and place it there and then would JavaScript even the conversation becomes a little bit more difficult but you know once they graphs what the actual the dam is how to do its reversal selection they get it right you know it's it's 1 of things where it's like you know to change all the each ones and H. three's like in and they're like I can do this with cold of and before the delete between JavaScript and rails to me was least will mass but the 2nd group in between that and they started to actually understand what the principles are that they would be done a lot for rails right so outlets use the same thing they knew that hey far creator Ralph or something and then maybe the view of to to associated with the common although science and it was 1 of those things where again like I said I can't think you know the there were community enough for creating a framework that gave enough structure but allowed people to be creative with inside of it or else I would've been able to do this out of and you knows swimming around backbone for while trying teach kids had this so I'm going going to give like a where are they now and this is like the best possible outcome before I had 3 students I that we took 4 4 8 weeks 4 hours a week and taught them how to do these things but Michelle she was God except in the San Jose state on a full academic ride 1st kid to go to college she was the 1st person I heard and her family would go to college as she is now going to be studying computer science as she resurrected the pinnacle of her school and and I told her no matter what people say Computer Club is cool I was in the computer books and they have a come see me I and that she actually free developed the school's web site as staking a Computer Science F I could tell you the numbers of women who actually take a Computer Science a more dismal than the numbers that shows you earlier on in nasty actually teachers web development at the Vietnamese youth developments and and Cisco so and you know is 1 the sages like I don't have kids but I feel like I'm a proud father right so were betting Casa were Robec Inc cover the other 2 participants and they prefer they've once of the course they took off running so they started participating in all types a hacker parsing hacked weekends and things and up-sell you about the the the inquisitive nature of children so they took place in the heart upon for for Oakland started weaken and their task was to build an app that would affect the Community' affect positive change in the community so 1 of them they obviously you know come from different disadvantaged background and you just have a problem as near cities and the issue that 1 of the students had was that they wanted to get alerts from from food banks when headphones when had eligible food so they actually built an act in amber that with a literally it has 3 components are excellent had some of this is static not taught a custom of little bit of but that's so they had a repository for the for the flu providers onto a grocery store a restaurant can list food available and then they had a a system that would alert the idea that the NGOs' and things in the food banks they can get the food they had another component which was in at that they'd they stuffed inside a phone get where they get that from I have no clue I but they did it within 48 hours and weekends and they were the only kids actually had a working at his other part of it where I felt like a parent I remember my mom used to get mad when been when things there was all the kid that working Eappen they did not win but I felt I felt I no right but also help they took this upon themselves to to to learn the technology and we can actually build something that could affect positive change in their communities and and they actually were featured on the news local moves out outside and and San Francisco and now they're actually teaching mobile app development using phone gap Amber 2 black gross co so I think it's you know as well as these again were feel extremely proud so was next right expansion so we need more companies need more more cities of it we need to teach people how to build businesses but not as any type business art like build businesses that can affect your communities and do some good and I just you know I have a ton of money and built the next Snapchat right was so 1 of these I implore you gotta do I always like to leave people will call action is I don't want to get involved and it doesn't necessarily have to be somebody that's that's a disadvantage community but you know we get wrapped up in features and ship in the next greatest thing and 1 thing is you guys realize you probably take for granted that you're immensely skilled player immensely talented and even if it's just for 30 minutes to our week you can you can impart that knowledge on someone on the you can make a dead and you know the the issues that are around in many cities I've met people from Ohio and Tennessee in in all these places where I know personally there that had the same issues as that I into to say apply yourselves to to to to do more than just right is more than that you have the power to say is a world with just a few keystrokes thank you all very much time in
the coming in and out of that thing that and and the in in a new light on the meaning of the word is is the use of the and again

Abstract This talk chronicles my adventures in teaching underrepresented and underserved youth in the Bay Area, CA how to program using Ember. Unemployment for people 16-24 is around 17% almost double the national average. This number is even higher for minorities > 30% depending on which demographic you choose. Hacker academies are seen as a solution to this issue, but is often cost prohibitive. I wanted to pilot a program that would teach people how to program for free alongside professional engineers to learn best practices. The results went beyond what I and those were involved expected.
