Modernizing Army Training in Software and Tech

Army Futures Command (AFC) is partnering with Austin Community College (ACC) in Texas to create a new Software Factory, which will be a software development training program for Army soldiers. Planned to start in January, it will blend training of both soldiers and civilians in newer tech practices in agile development. Maj. Vito Errico from AFC will co-lead the Software Factory, and he joins the podcast to describe its goals. Garrett Groves, Vice President of Business and Industry Partnerships, also joins the podcast to explain how ACC is uniquely aligned to support such a program. They also explain what K-12 educators should know about these plans.
