Registration is now open for the Beaufort Digital Corridor's CODEcamp, a project-based, introductory code education program designed for adults of all backgrounds and experience levels in a convenient, affordable, after-hours class format.
CODEcamp is being offered as a pilot program in partnership with the University of South Carolina Beaufort with the course taught by Dr. Brian Canada, a professor in Computational Science who regularly teaches USCB's own courses in front-end and back-end web development.
The in-classroom, eight-week Introduction to Web Development course will be held on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Beaufort Digital Corridor's BASEcamp business incubator, 500 Carteret St.
The cost of the program is $295, with attendance limited to 10 seats.
One of the four tenets of the Beaufort Digital Corridor is talent. "Our goal in launching CODEcamp is to position Beaufort for high-wage tech and knowledge-based companies by improving the technical education skills of our citizens," said Beaufort City Councilman Stephen Murray.
The classes will augment other tech education offerings currently available in the Lowcountry.
"We are pleased to extend our CODEcamp program to Beaufort," said Charleston Digital Corridor Director Ernest Andrade. "With over 2,000 attendees to the program in Charleston since launch in 2012, many of our graduates are finding employment in the tech industry while other working professionals are able to extend their knowledge by broadening their technical skillset."
The initial eight-week Introduction to Web Development course is scheduled to begin Feb. 17.
The Beaufort Digital Corridor is a community-sourced business initiative to attract, nurture and promote the city's knowledge economy through an array of impactful programs, products and events while leveraging the city's renowned livability.
