When Will We Open?

Silicon Dojo will open in stages.

The first stage that we are currently in is when I'll do one on one meetings at the Dojo. If you have question about your career trjectory, thoughts on starting a tech business, or you need to make heads or tails of a contract your IT consultant gave you we can meet for an hour or two and discuss your issues.

Stage 2 will be after I have recieved my second Covid Shot. Then we'll start having seminars for people who are vaccinated to go over subjects such as Cybersecurity for Small Business, Web Marketing, How to be a YouTuber, etc.

Stage 3 will be when we start what the Dojo was built for and open for students to learn Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and IoT at their own pace. Beyond CDC guidelines I still need to write this curriculum so I am targetting end of May to beginning of June to start this.
