              LAMP Camp: Launching Development Careers
                   through Experiential Mentorship

                   Jay Solomon and Kane McConnell
                          The Cresca Group

LAMP Camp is a professional career mentorship program that allows coders to become marketable LAMP Stack developers. In 12 weeks, campers go from having basic PHP and MySQL knowledge to developers that understand and have experienced the development lifecycle and environment. The program is fully sponsored by the Cresca Group, making it not only free but one of the most career-changing opportunities of a lifetime. The President of Cresca, Jay Solomon, and the company's VP of IT and Camp Director, Kane McConnell, will discuss how LAMP Camp works, the benefits it provides, and the value of participating in a mentorship program.

About the Speakers:

Jay Solomon, President of Cresca. Over the course of his career in online retail, Jay and his partner developed multiple businesses and brands, which ultimately led them to establish The Cresca Group, a business management consultancy for the ecommerce industry that specializes in developing, growing, and managing brands and their technology needs. LAMP Camp allows Cresca to give back to the Atlanta community and the world of ecommerce by mentoring a generation of PHP developers.

Kane McConnell, VP of IT and LAMP Camp Director. Kane McConnell has led a long and storied career in IT and business management. From automating himself out of job after job to developing and selling products, services and technology for the last 15 years, Kane has reveled in the journey that led him to his role as the VP of IT of The Cresca Group and Camp Director of its LAMP Camp program. With mentoring as a passion, these roles allow him to fulfill a purpose in his life that contributes to his company, his city, and the economy at large.
