Accepting Applications for CodeNow’s next NYC Class! Apply by 6/28

CodeNow is tech crunchCodeNow is once again accepting applications for an upcoming training in NYC! We are looking for motivated high school students who are curious about what goes into creating the websites, software, mobile apps, video games, and the other technologies they use every day. No prior coding experience is necessary. Students must be able to attend all six training sessions, which will be held from 9am to 4pm on August 17-18th, September 7-8th, and September 14-15th.

 

Students that are accepted will receive 40+ hours of hands-on training from experienced programmers, and receive 10 hours of online homework. Throughout the program they will learn the fundamentals of the coding language Ruby, collaborate with other students, and build projects along the way.  In order to ensure students have the resources available to continue coding after our program, each student has an opportunity to earn their own laptop by arriving on time, completing homework and finishing assignments. To date we have awarded 106 laptops to graduates of our program. CodeNow is a great opportunity for these teens to develop valuable 21st century skills, which will open up many doors for their future.
