CODEcamp Beaufort Fall 2019

Introduction to web development, last of the year!

The Beaufort Digital Corridor announces the Fall 2019 class of CODEcamp – Introduction to Web Development, its final offering of the year. Registration is open now for this limited seating opportunity.

The eight-week course is on Saturdays from 10:00am-1:00pm starting October 5 through November 23, 2019 at the Corridor's BASEcamp facility. CODEcamp is a project-based, introductory code education program designed for busy adults of all experience levels in a convenient, affordable guided class format. Students learn fundamentals of HTML, CSS and JavaScript with a combination of written and verbal instruction using real-time online programs.

We are pleased to again involve the University of South Carolina Beaufort with CODEcamp instruction. This year, Jarod Valvo, a junior in the computational science program at USCB, will instruct the class. With the professor-appointed best website of his class as well as having taught coding languages to middle schoolers, Jarod is up to the task and excited to instruct a new class in learning front-end web development. Our inaugural CODEcamp Beaufort class was taught by Dr. Brian Canada, Chair of the Department of Computer Science at USCB.

If you are curious about what it takes to create the look, feel and design of a website this is your chance to see what it's all about! The practical application of what is learned with hands-on CODEcamp can be utilized right away. The next class will cover a different kind of coding, such as Android, React Native or a beginning course on mobile (iOS/android), depending on what the community wants to learn. Participants can further their coding education by attending the SC Codes monthly meetup at BASEcamp. SC Codes is a free self-guided platform for all South Carolinians to continue their coding education.

Talent, one of the pillars of the Beaufort Digital Corridor, is crucial to the economic vitality and global competitiveness of the Lowcountry. Generating curiosity about coding and improving technical education contributes to the innovation and skills of our changing workforce.
