Sourcers often recruit programmers to create products that drive their company forward, but what if you could do the same to drive your company's recruiting forward?  Numerous opportunities exist to go beyond or fill gaps that off-the-shelf software cannot provide, at no cost.  While you won't emerge from this session as a top coder, you'll learn how to scale the initial barriers to take your career to the next level and make you uniquely (in)valuable to employers:

  • Why you need a free GitHub account to take advantage of today's stuff & how to use it as a coder
  • What free software you need to install (Apple or Windows) for Python, today's hottest language + recommended free code editors that handle various languages
  • Step-by-step through a couple of novice-level JavaScript bookmarklets and Excel VBA examples that you can build on
  • Where to find more free sourcer-relevant scripts you can easily adapt without deep programming knowledge
  • Where to go for additional free programming coursework to complement what you'll learn from peers
  • Who in the sourcing community you should get to know to continue your programming journey
