April 26 - Georgia Tech-Savannah Opens Registration for Online Coding Boot Camp

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

April 26, 2019 - Georgia Tech-Savannah is offering an online Coding Boot Camp program to equip participants with the specialized skills needed to tap into the rewarding web development industry. 

The challenging curriculum is composed into a 24-week program that gives students the skills needed to become proficient in front-end and back-end technologies. Classes begin virtually on May 18, 2019. Registration is now open. 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, web development ranks among the world’s fastest-growing professions, with jobs projected to increase at a 20% annual pace through 2022. The opportunities for skilled developers have long passed the labor supply: of more than 150,000 new openings posted each year, some 50,000 go unfilled.

The curriculum covers everything from the basics of coding, algorithms and data structures, to intensive training in Javascript, Node.js, HTML, CSS, jQuery, C#, and more. In addition to learning in the classroom, students will spend 10-15 hours each week on outside projects and experiential learning activities to build a professional project portfolio that showcases their abilities to create web applications. 

Students will also receive a range of career-planning services, portfolio reviews, demo days, recruiting assistance and extensive staff support. While no previous experience is required, applicants should have a basic understanding of coding. Upon graduating, students will receive a certificate in Fullstack Web Development from Georgia Tech Professional Education, currently the only university-backed boot camp in the state of Georgia.
