Intensive Coding Training School Helping Fill Employment Gap and Change Students’ Lives with Placement in Coding Career
New York (PRWEB) December 20, 2016
Coder Foundry, an intensive coding bootcamp offering hands-on learning to train students for career advancement in professional web and software development, is offering a total of seven scholarships specifically for its new location in New York City. The bootcamp, located in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan, is celebrating its first New York class by engaging with students looking to make a change in their lives with starting salaries ranging from $60,000 to $90,000. This is an average increase of $26,000 compared to students’ annual salaries before attending the course.
Coder Foundry recognizes the lack of women in the technology field and supports equal opportunity and resources. In a November 2016 study by Advancing Women in Technology, it was found that only 25 percent of computing jobs are held by women. To help advance the great contributions females make in the field, Coder Foundry will offer one woman a full scholarship to its January class. The “Women in Tech” scholarship will cover both the Intro to Programming course and the 18-week course, valued at $14,250.
In addition, Coder Foundry is offering six students a scholarship for $3,000 off the January 18-week course. The “NYC Coding Career Scholarship” gives students of all backgrounds the chance to be placed in professional coding careers following course graduation. Past students have come from all walks of life and work experience, ranging from accounting, massage therapy, stay-at-home parent, financial services to fast food workers.
“We are excited to give students a chance to change their lives with a new career,” said Lawrence Reaves, CEO and co-founder of Coder Foundry. “Our courses give students real-world experience and job placement to help find a career they are passionate about. Our scholarships are just one way we can broaden the diversity of the coding world and empower people to take their career, future earning potential and lifestyle in their own hands. We’re thrilled to kick off our first New York City class come January and look forward to guiding these fabulous students to new heights.”
Coder Foundry has offered rapid hands-on training and professional job placement for people who want to start a computer programming career for more than three years. It is the first and only coding class to offer New York-based students training in .NET, one of the most employable coding languages for enterprise IT careers. In addition to teaching .NET and other coding languages, Coder Foundry courses simulate real-world work experience; students are exposed to the same workflow, structure, project types, deadlines and overall expectations they will encounter on the job. This allows them to hit the ground running to make immediately contributions with their new employers after graduation.
Potential students interested in the scholarships need to write a 100-word essay on why they want a coding career. The deadline for all applications is Dec. 31, 2016. For more information and to apply for a scholarship visit coderfoundry.com/newyorkcampus.
