As Berlin’s tech scene grows, employers are hungry for job-ready talent. McKinsey estimates that the city’s tech industry will generate 100,000 new jobs by 2020, and the competition for technology workers across Europe is fierce. A study by the European Commission found that 40 percent of European companies report difficulty finding tech talent.
To meet the growing demand for skilled coders, ESMT Berlin today announced the launch of a coding boot camp, the first in Europe launched in partnership with leading workforce accelerator Trilogy Education. The program provides the necessary skills to become a full-fledged web developer – no previous knowledge is needed.
The 24-week, part-time program begins Tuesday 9 July, with two three-hour evening classes during the week (6:30 to 9:30 p.m.) and a four-hour class on Saturdays (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). Enrollment is now open at bootcamp.esmt.org.
“As technology skills explode in demand across Europe, we realized that Berlin has limited options for working professionals who want to learn these skills,” said Nick Barniville, Associate Dean of Degree Programs at ESMT. “Trilogy Education works with many of the world’s top universities to power intensive, skills-based training programs proven to help people of all backgrounds start careers in tech. Through this partnership, the ESMT Berlin Coding Boot Camp will give local professionals best-in-class technical instruction and career coaching to ensure they are positioned to be part of Berlin’s growing digital economy.”
“The ESMT Berlin Coding Boot Camp will be rigorous, but at the end, graduates will have an impressive set of skills and a portfolio of work to help them jump start careers in tech,” said Dan Sommer, CEO and founder of Trilogy Education. “As our first partner in Europe, ESMT Berlin joins a network of world-class universities. Together, we’ll deliver a high-quality, career-oriented program that quickly adapts to the needs of the job market.”
Boot camp students will gain skills to develop dynamic end-to-end web applications, as well as receive a Certificate in Full-Stack Web Development from ESMT.
