Concordia’s Coding Bootcamp Included in New TechHire Initiative

Concordia University’s Coding BootCamp program is one of three Twin Cities area accelerated training programs that will work with the city of Minneapolis as part of the newly established TechHire initiative, a White House campaign designed to help get more people hired in high-tech jobs. Minneapolis is one of the first regions in the United States to participate in this new initiative.

Launched in January 2015, Concordia’s Coding Bootcamp is an intensive, fast-paced, 12-week program where students learn to be a software developer. CSP teamed with Kentucky-based The Learning House, which develops online learning programs for universities, to launch the on-campus program.

To accommodate the program an entire classroom inside Concordia’s Lutheran Memorial Center was remodeled, furnished and equipped for use by the bootcamp students and instructors.
