What is BDPA?
BDPA is a non-profit organization of professionals working in or having an interest in the Computer Science and Information Technology fields.
Earl Pace and the late David Wimberly founded BDPA in May of 1975. BDPA was formed out of a concern shared by both men that minorities were not adequately represented in the information technology industry.
As technology professionals competing in a global market, we must never stop learning or growing.
BDPA remains committed to excellence and providing a wide spectrum of resources to members, corporate sponsors, businesses, educational institutions and the community.
Black Data Processing Associate’s (BDPA), Milwaukee Chapter, is committed to supporting the national initiative of ensuring diverse representation in the IT field. BDPA is a catalyst for professional growth and technical development.
What is the High School Computer Competition?
The HSCC is the main initiative of the BDPA aimed at middle and high school students who have an interest in Computer Science and Information Technology Fields.
Students train during the year learning to develop web applications and ultimately competing in a national competition for scholarships. Students meet weekly. The goals of the effort and competition are:
- Select interested students to train in three key technologies for developing web applications: web, programming, and database
- Train in 21st century skills and groom many of them to become our next generation of IT professionals
- Optionally, present opportunities for training in mobile development and showcase presentation.
- Select a subset of students to participate in the HSCC, the Youth Conference, Mobile development, and High School and College showcase at the national conference
