DGS hosts HS coding showcase alongside Code in the Schools

DGS CITS Showcase


The DGS Business Process Improvement Office (BPIO) is working with the local non-profit Code in the Schools (CITS) to create a career pipeline program for high school students. At a recent live showcase, four CITS students presented their work to an expert panel of judges. Over the past four months they have been working to create computer-based solutions for DGS. They developed two Twitter bots that send out data and efficiency updates. Director Sharkey was one of the expert panelists providing tips and asking questions about the projects, alongside him were experts from Under Armour, University of Maryland Baltimore, and local Baltimore technology startups. One student, a freshman at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, will join DGS this summer as an intern, working alongside BPIO staff.
