Savvy Coders’ mission statement is very clear – make the tech field accessible to everyone. This blog and the ones that follow will give you a better understanding of what we do as a company to make that happen. Interested in entering the tech industry? We hope to show you that it’s within reach if you’re willing to put in the time and effort.

Here’s a short breakdown of our company’s goals:

Accessibility to everyone – The tech industry has boomed over the years and lots of job opportunities have grown in the area. Chances to take advantage of the growth seems to have passed up some communities that could benefit from it the most. This particular field requires a skill set that leans more towards a four-year degree, but that doesn’t mean that you still can’t get your foot in the door. We work with local agencies to make sure students who want to attend have the opportunity to join our classes. Savvy Coders wants to help provide the tech talent that the area needs to help the local industry continue to grow and thrive. We want to make sure that local talent can take advantage of an industry that needs skilled professionals immediately. You need the right knowledge to gain entry into this field and Savvy Coders can help.

Condensed class times – Taking classes, even shorter ones, needs to fit around the responsibilities of your current life. Savvy Coders provides the foundation that you can grow your career from in ten weeks. During these three hour sessions four days a week you will gain a basic understanding of web development. The lessons in our curriculum cover HTML 5, CSS 3, JavaScript, WEB API, jQuery, and JSON as well as Agile certification. With a dedication to learning these basics and applying them both in and out of the classroom as you work on your projects, you can prepare yourself to confidently enter the workforce. We utilize Slack to keep in touch after hours. Should you need any assistance it can be found through the cohort’s channel. Our instructors, students, and mentors can be reached through it.

Helping our students succeed – We’ve reached out to the established community to provide our students with more tools to help them by way of mentors and speakers who know what it takes to succeed long-term in tech. We’ve also started an exclusive partnership with Neteffects who will coach our students through what to expect during interviews, resume retooling and job placement after graduation from our boot camp. After your classes are over you’re still a part of our community. You will develop a close relationship with your fellow classmates and continue to reach out to them for questions or help while developing your portfolio.

Savvy Coders can be the stepping stone you need to enter a rapidly growing industry. If you’re ready to fit ten weeks of classes into your life four days a week, three hours a night, you’ll be amazed at what you’ll learn and what you can do at the end of it.
