New York City coworking and technology education outfit General Assembly will be holding its first workshop at the University City Science Center on May 30, 2012.

Pritzker says the early workshops and classes will be run by NYC staff, but they have plans in the works to hire from the local community. Full disclosure, General Assembly posted that local hire on the Technically Philly jobs board.
3rd Ward, the Brooklyn-based coworking facility is due to open a satellite this summer in Kensington, but Pritzker says General Assembly is not planning anything of that sort.
“We will only offer classes, workshops, and programs,” Pritzker said.
The Philly expansion is an easy jump for GA, who ultimately has grander, national ambitions.
“We are striving to create a global network of campuses for individuals seeking education and opportunity in technology, business and design,” Pritzker said. “The people who engage with General Assembly will have access to that network, and Philadelphia has a very talented group of entrepreneurs, developers and designers.”-30-
