MANHATTAN — Free tech classes are coming to the Flatiron district this summer.
The Flatiron Business Improvement District will host a series of three classes in the district’s public plazas. Each course will be taught by instructors from General Assembly, a Flatiron-based company that provides educational programming in technology, design and entrepreneurship.
The first class, “Intro to the NYC Startup Community,” will be held on June 14 and is meant to acquaint participants with the tech scene in the Big Apple.
The instructor, General Assembly's director of content strategy, Anna Lindow, will highlight key events to attend, as well as the people, companies, blogs and issues that are making an impact in the industry.
That course will be followed by a lesson in programming for non-programmers on July 12 and a class on business development tactics on Aug. 9.
Although all courses are free and open to the public, space is limited. Interested participants are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the first class.
Registration for programs later in the summer will open in the coming weeks.
