MEDA’s twelve-week Mission Techies program – part of MEDA’s free Workforce Development – teaches IT essentials of hardware, software, networking and coding.

The Mission Techies program was the cover story of the June 17 issue of the San Francisco Business Times, which prompted this letter from House of Representatives’ Jackie Speier.
