NASHUA - With demand for skilled web developers at an all-time high,
the University of New Hampshire will launch a 24-week Coding
Boot Camp in June 2017. "The innovative, full stack program," says
Michael Mengers, Program Developer with UNH Professional Development &
Training, "is ideal for motivated individuals looking for a new career
challenge or advancement in their current job."
The Coding Boot Camp, which is offered in collaboration with Trilogy
Education Services, will start on June 6, 2017, in Nashua, and is
designed to accommodate the schedules of working professionals, with
two three-hour evening classes during the week (6:30 to 9:30 p.m.) and
a four-hour class on Saturdays (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.)
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, web development ranks
among the world's fastest-growing professions, with jobs projected to
increase at a 20% annual pace through 2022. The opportunities for
skilled developers have already outstripped the labor supply: Of more
than 150,000 new openings posted each year, some 50,000 go unfilled.
"There are many opportunities," says Mengers, "and while web
development is a profession that demands a lot, students will find the
Coding Boot Camp to be flexible and fun."
UNH Coding Boot Camp is noncredit program offered in collaboration with
Trilogy Education Services, a Continuing Education Program Manager
(CEPM) that creates and manages skills-based training programs that
combine market-driven technical instruction with a deep emphasis on
career coaching and employer networking. Trilogy's combined
career/coding curriculum gives students the competence and confidence
to succeed in the Digital Economy.
Students who complete the program will have the skills they need to
develop dynamic end-to-end web applications, which will make a great
impression on prospective employers. In addition, they will receive a
certificate in Full-stack Web Development from University of New
