Assistant Trainer Needed


BDPA Detroit High School Competition (HSCC) Camp


This course is designed to be an introduction to open-source web application development and engineering in general. Students will learn how to design the user interface of web applications using mobile-responsive techniques and also learn how to display and store information from a database within the application using server-side programming. This will give students the opportunity to gain a 360-degree view of how a web application functions. The PMI Great Lakes Chapter will partner with BDPA-Detroit to enhance the HSCC curriculum with a course called: ‘Project Management 101 Skills for Life’. This short course will provide students with tools and techniques to help them work effectively as a team.

This is a volunteer position. Trainers are eligible for PMI PDU’s toward PMI re-certification or obtaining PMI certification. We are in need of an Assistant Trainer. Someone that is able to work with high school students. Experienced in some (but not all) of the following technologies:

Open Source and Homebrew Gaming Night


 Tux gaming


Are you interested in building your own video game, but have no idea where to start or meet up with other gamers?  Then the next BDPA TAC meeting is for you.


June 16, 2015

7PM to 9PM

@ Tech Town

440 Burroughs St, Detroit, MI 48202


There will be a talk on simple game development and what free, open source, and low cost tools and resources are available, followed by an hour of playing open source, homebrew, &  hacked games.  This is a great opportunity for those of us who build indie games in our free time to exchange ideas and see what other people are working on. It's also an excellent time just to kick back with other people in the Metro Detroit area and play a few games you've never heard of.
