Community Colleges Join to Offer Affordable Coding Bootcamp

by Mike Hunter

Technology careers are growing at a rapid pace in an industry that is stronger than many others. With an anticipated 21 percent growth rate over the next 10 years for software development jobs, the need for software developers is stronger than ever.

Three Maricopa Community Colleges are working with Promineo Tech, an innovative provider of tech education, to make coding education more affordable and accessible. With programs open to the public through their Community Education or Workforce Development department, Estrella Mountain, GateWay and Scottsdale community colleges began coding bootcamps last month in partnership with Education-as-a-Service provider Promineo Tech.

“The tech community is short on qualified coders,” says Maureen Hannon, program supervisor of Community Education at GateWay Community College. “These bootcamps will help our community members prepare for a long-term, lucrative career in coding.”

The 18-week program focuses on back-end software development. Three six-week courses cover everything from Java to Web API Design, and more. Students will master topics necessary for entry-level roles such as software developer, software engineer and java developer.

“Phoenix is one of the top markets in the country for tech hiring,” states Nick Suwyn, founder of Promineo Tech. “Making this technology education accessible and affordable will ensure that more people can pursue their dreams and tap into this booming industry.”

NOTICE FROM MARICOPA COMMUNITY COLLEGES: Due to COVID-19, the bootcamps will start April 8th and the program will be administered remotely (online) to start. Once things clear up, MCC can transition back to offering in-person and remote.
