Don’t just learn to code – become a developer
I am excited to announce that in May 2015 we will be launching the first Code Bootcamp of South Dakota. Code Bootcamp is an intense, eight-week educational experience focused on learning through academic, hands-on, and group activities to produce cutting edge Web Developers to meet the demands of the our growing technology community. Geared specifically to those who want to jump-start their career quickly to become a Web and user-interface developer.
About six months ago I partnered up with Josh Stroschein to launch Code Bootcamp. We have been planning, organizing and strategizing ever since to bring this experience to the Sioux Falls community. We have met with many key business leaders and organizations as part of our journey to ensure we bring the correct skills and experiences that they need in new employees.
Code Bootcamp is not just about “how to write code”; you can watch YouTube, Lynda.com, or CodeAcademy to learn those skills. Unlike other programs, Code Bootcamp combines traditional instruction, hands-on projects, guest speakers, mentorship, and lifestyle skills together in an intense eight-week experience to build a well-rounded education. Being a developer is more than just having the skills; developers need experience, mentorship, and life skills. We are also very community-focused and you will see that embedded into every aspect of our business.
Upcoming blog posts will cover:
