Happy New Year everyone! We hope that you are all doing well. As we set goals for the coming year we feel it is important to reflect on the wonderful opportunities that we were blessed with in 2016. We at CodeWorks experienced growth by teaching more than 80 students to code. We challenged ourselves to stay current on industry standards, and started developing software for Virtual Realty. Most importantly we met some of the most amazing individuals; students with a desire to learn and the determination to stick with things even when they are hard.
Moving into 2017 we hope to teach more students and more fully embrace our Mission: “Empowering individuals to change there lives through code.” Our 1st cohort of 2017 is already underway and is doing AWESOME! We are at full capacity with 20 students, all from very different backgrounds ranging from construction, to tax accountants, a geophysicist and everything in between. We feel fortunate to teach such a diverse group and know that is one of the things that leads to the success of our school.
In order to stay ahead of the curve with industry standards we are constantly changing our curriculm and pushing our students to know what is current, now. We are excited to integrate Vue.js into our fullstack course beginning this cohort. For those of you unfamiliar with Vue.js it has been one of the most popular development repositories for the past 4 months. Click here to learn more https://vuejs.org/. We will also be offering our first Back End/ Game Development course that will begin on June 5th, 2017. Registration has already begun and we can’t wait for the opportuity to teach more C# attached with the Unity game engine.
We feel fortunate to be apart of so many wonderful organizations including the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce, the Idaho Virtual Reality Council, the Boise Software Developer Group, Career College’s Federation and New American’s Code. We are hopeful that 2017 will continue to be a year of growth for us, as well as our students and look forward for new opportunities to be apart of this great city!
