CODEcamp Beaufort Spring 2020

Beginning mobile development

The Beaufort Digital Corridor brings something fresh to the Spring 2020 class of CODEcamp РBeginning Mobile Development, a brand new addition to the CODEcamp roster. Registration is open now for this limited seating opportunity.

The eight-week course takes place on Saturdays from 10:00am-1:00pm at the Corridor's BASEcamp facility starting March 28, 2020 and runs through May 16. CODEcamp is a project-based, code education program designed for busy adults of all experience levels in a convenient, affordable guided class format.

We are pleased to see the return of instructor Matt Shaw, senior software engineer, whose professional focus is mobile development. Matt was inspired to create the curriculum for the new CODEcamp offering after teaching two seasons of Intro to Web Development. Students will learn the basics of mobile development using React Native, an open-source mobile application framework created by Facebook that can be used for both Android and iOS.

The class is for beginners, so anyone who is curious about what it takes to create a mobile app can join. However, former CODEcamp students may have a leg up because they already have been introduced to coding languages including JavaScript. The practical application of what is learned in the CODEcamp courses can be used right away.

The Corridor is seeking sponsors to help offset some costs for the program in order to continue offering classes at least twice a year in a format that remains affordable for students.
