ThoughtWorks Renews Support of BDPA Dallas Chapter

ThoughtWorks renewed its sponsorship of our local chapter in Dallas, Texas.   The company agreed to provide in-kind facilities donation for the chapter's monthly program meetings.   This is the second year that ThoughtWorks has made the commitment to house these monthly professional development workshops.

ThoughtWorks is a global IT consultancy providing Agile-based systems development and consulting services. They have pioneered many of the most advanced and successful Agile methods of software development and best practices used in the industry today.

In other words, they build amazing software. It’s amazing because it’s the stuff which makes or breaks companies; software which creates competitive advantage. ThoughtWorks see building software as a social activity, best done by teams of brilliant people, not a mechanistic process where individuals are interchangeable cogs in a master plan.  Their hiring model focuses on finding outstanding talent, over the mastery of tools.

BDPA Dallas, the 7th-largest chapter in the nation led by president Chad White, seeks to make a difference for African Americans as they advance in their information technology industry from the classroom to the boardroom.
