    Teach code • Build confidence • Inspire creativity • Create happiness

    Youth Code Jam runs San Antonio’s largest youth coding event...but we can’t do it without YOU!

    Volunteers make up 99.9% of the Youth Code Jam workforce! They are the heart and soul of the organization. Join our corporate volunteer team and meet up with other programmers from H-E-B, Labatt Food Service, SSFCU, Delta Risk, Valero, Rackspace and more! Our mentors have technical expertise and are interested in helping to build up the skills of today’s young students and inspire them to be life-long learners of computer science. They show up for a few hours, share their knowledge, get an awesome t-shirt and have tons of fun! There’s no typical classroom style interaction at our community events. Our volunteers are there to answer questions as students work independently alongside parents.

    What our volunteers do:

    •  volunteer as individuals or as part of a corporate team
    •  serve as subject matter experts and student mentors
    •  answer and ask questions to help drive students further along the project
    •  encourage students to explore deeper and further

    Upcoming Events

    Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 11 am to 5 pm (actual event runs 1 to 4 pm)
    ESC Region 20, 1314 Hines
    This is our largest event. We can host up to 700 students and parents this year, but to do that, we’ll need nearly 175 volunteer mentors. Can you help?

    Hyatt Regency San Antonio Texas

    Techno Security & Digital Forensics Conference

    Join the industry on September 18-20, 2017 for the Techno Security & Digital Forensics Conference which will be held at the Hyatt Regency, San Antonio. This location will expand the brand whose flagship event has taken place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the past 19 years.

    The conference will welcome corporate network security professionals, federal, state and local law enforcement digital forensic specialists, corporate and private forensic examiners and investigators.

    The 2017 event will feature over 60 seminar sessions, dedicated sponsor product demonstrations and exhibits over the three days of networking among fellow cybersecurity and digital forensics industry professionals. Attendees may earn up to 26 CPE credit hours for attending.

    Primary seminar topics include:

    • Audit/Risk Management
    • Forensics (digital/mobile)
    • Investigations
    • Information Security

    The COMEXPOSIUM Group has announced the launch of a second location for the Techno Security & Digital Forensics Conference brand to take place September 18-20, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency in San Antonio, Texas. This location will expand the brand whose flagship event has taken place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the past 18 years.

    An additional location in Texas for Techno Security & Digital Forensics Conference will allow attendees within the Texas region who are not able to travel to South Carolina the ability to attend and gain all the knowledge, networking, etc. that the event provides to the cybersecurity/digital forensics industry. This expansion will also benefit sponsors of the event by bringing them together with new prospective customers that they would not meet in Myrtle Beach.

    The goal of the brand expansion is not to dilute the already successful Myrtle Beach event, but to allow for the ability to reach additional attendees that do not have the means, time or budget to travel to the East Coast. Cybersecurity and digital forensics is a growing field with an ever-increasing need for more training, education and access to suppliers in all regions.
