Beaufort Digital Corridor Offers Spring 2019 CODEcamp

Shelley Barratt

The Beaufort Digital Corridor is pleased to announce a spring offering of CODEcamp – Introduction to Web Development class. Registration is open now for this limited seating opportunity.

CODEcamp is a project-based, introductory code education program designed for busy adults of all backgrounds and experience levels in a convenient, affordable after-hours guided class format. Students learn fundamentals of HTML, CSS & JavaScript with a combination of written and verbal instruction using real-time online programs that show results instantly.

Instructor Matt Shaw, senior software engineer, will again lead the eight-week CODEcamp course: Saturdays from 10:00am-1:00pm from March 23 to May 11, 2019 at the Corridor's BASEcamp facility. The Corridor is currently looking for sponsors for the program and funding to enable two students to take the CODEcamp course on scholarship.

In addition to CODEcamp, we are excited to introduce SC Codes, a free continuing education platform that students can access at their own pace from home, or through in-person events and mentorship at partner sites. BASEcamp will act as a partner site for participants to gather once a month and practice what they have learned. CODEcamp participants are encouraged to further their education via SC Codes.

The Digital Corridor has partnered with Build Carolina to connect South Carolinians to the education and resources they need to unlock careers in technology. The free code education initiative provides further knowledge in the languages introduced at CODEcamp and includes other relevant coding languages like Command Line, Ruby, Java, and React.js. "Connecting to the state's initiative is a powerful way for Beaufort to get in on an important future workforce resource" said Shelley Barratt, Beaufort Digital Corridor Program Manager.

About SC Codes: SC Codes is a learning platform and coding community. A collaboration powered by the S.C. Department of Commerce's Office of Innovation and Build Carolina, SC Codes not only provides free access to technology education, it also connects, trains and empowers programmers across our state.
