Announcing Coded’s Spring Coding Bootcamp

Folks,

We all know how hard it is to find a talented coder to hire or be your co-founder. So sometimes, the best thing to do is to go learn the technical stuff yourself. In the least, mastering the fundamentals of programming helps you  communicate with your technical team, and be more valuable to the product building process.

There’s no doubt that the time and effort you invest in your coding education will pay dividends for your startup in one way or another.

If you’re looking for a place to learn how to code, Coded, Kuwait’s first and only coding bootcamp, has announced earlier this week that they are accepting applications for the Spring coding bootcamp.

Coded Bootcamp Announcement

The bootcamp is aimed at beginners who want to become professional programmers. Coded students graduate as junior level professional coders.

The Spring bootcamp, which starts in March, is an intensive part-time bootcamp with 4 hours of class every weekday (5m to 9m), and lasts 14 weeks. The part-time format makes it easy for those who have a full-time commitment in the day time to join the bootcamp in the evening.

The application deadline is Feb 7th, 2016.

You can check it out and apply on joincoded.com 

 

Good luck!

REMINDER: The First Full-time Coding Bootcamp in Kuwait + Instructor Bio + Scholarships

Disclaimer: the author of this post is a co-founder of "Coded".

 

A few weeks ago, we posted an announcement about “Coded”, the first coding bootcamp in Kuwait started accepting applications for it’s summer full-time full-stack bootcamp. 

 

The program aims to take students with little to no coding background or Computer Science experience and turn them into junior level professional developers within 8 very intense week.

 

We meet a lot of ambitious people in Kuwait who have great ideas for startups but don’t have the technical background to execute on those ideas. If you’re one of those people, the Coded Bootcamp would be a great way for you to quickly acquire the basic technical skills you will need to either build the product yourself, or have a good enough understanding of the technical aspects to be able to communicate with a technical co-founder or team.

 

Coded recently announced that there are scholarship opportunities to fund the entire program fee for selected students. More scholarship opportunities will be added this coming week as well. So if you’re really interested in joining the program but the fees are too expensive, try to apply for a scholarship so you can join the bootcamp for free.

 

The instructor for the course comes directly from Coded’s affiliates in the US, Coding Campus. His name is Charles Stauffer. Charles is an enthusiastic software developer who has specialized in web applications. Charles has a wealth of experience working on both large and small teams. He also loves training students and new employees. Charles has a degree in Digital Animation & Computer Science from Brigham Young University. He has over 10 years of programming experience, and has notably worked as a PHP developer at Bluehost, one of the largest web hosting companies in the world. Charles’s specialty is in Python, JavaScript, and PHP.

Announcing The First Full-time Coding Bootcamp in Kuwait

Disclaimer: the author of this post is a co-founder of "Coded".

Earlier this week, the first coding school in Kuwait started accepting applications for its intensive full time program taking place this summer.

 

The coding school is called “Coded.” (short for “Code Education”), and is in affiliation with coding school Coding Campus out of Utah, USA. That basically means that the curriculum and instructor for CODED’s summer course will come directly from Coding Campus. Coding Campus has a 95% hiring rate for its graduates, and has technology industry partners such as Pinterest, Mozilla, Bluehost, Verisage, and more.

 

Coded’s bootcamp will be an 8-week, highly intensive course teaching full-stack web development. The aim is to turn people with basic programming skills into junior level professional developers.

 

Here are some of the bootcamp’s details:

• Duration: 8 weeks
• Time commitment: Weekdays 9 am to 5 pm (+optional lab on Saturdays)
• Program dates: July 26, 2015- September 24, 2015
• Languages taught: Full-stack (JavaScript, Angular JS, Python, Django, HTML5, CSS3)
• Class size: 12-15 Students (carefully chosen based on strict selection criteria)
• Pre-requisites: basic programming knowledge; minimal coding experience.

 

Applications are available online on CODED’s website, and the deadline is June 26.

 

Coded’s ultimate mission is to cultivate and develop the next generation of world-class coders in Kuwait and the GCC. I especially encourage anyone with a strong interest in founding or working in a startup or a tech company to consider applying for this bootcamp. Being a strong technical founder can make all the difference.
