As part of the initial fellowship group, Surge is providing teams comprised of apprentice and senior level developers, business analysts, project managers and architects. The teams are working on mission-critical projects for Baltimore City IT (BCIT) and the Baltimore Health Department. That work includes:
- BCIT: The BCIT team of fellows will work on application modernization projects with an emphasis on security. This will allow Baltimore Corps and Catalyte to better understand the city’s technical needs and how to leverage talent identification and training programs to prepare city residents for future technology jobs.
- Health Department: This team of fellows will develop case management and tracking capabilities on top of the city’s COVID/data tracking system. This is an important step as Baltimore continues on a safe and responsible path to reopening.
This is an amazing opportunity to showcase the hidden tech talent that exists in Baltimore. We can create a self-sustaining, interconnected cycle of improvement that uplifts individuals, families, communities and the whole city.
