With demand for skilled web developers at an all-time high, University of Washington (UW) Continuum College is launching a 24-week Coding Boot Camp in collaboration with Trilogy Education. The program starts July 30 and is designed to accommodate working professionals, 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 open now at https://bootcamp.uw.edu
“The inaugural UW Coding Boot Camp will equip working professionals here in Seattle with the skills to pursue rewarding tech careers. This innovative, full-stack program is ideal for motivated individuals looking for a new career challenge or advancement in their current job,” said Rovy Branon, vice provost, University of Washington Continuum College.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, web development ranks among the nation’s fastest-growing professions, with the number of jobs projected to increase by 15 percent by 2026. In the past 12 months, Washington employers struggled to fill more than 86,000 open roles requiring some level of coding ability.
“With the labor market the tightest it’s been in a generation, Seattle employers are hungry for job-ready talent. Together, the University and Washington and Trilogy are strengthening the regional economy by empowering local professionals with the digital skills to pursue these high-growth career opportunities,” said Dan Sommer, founder and CEO of Trilogy Education. “The University of Washington is at the forefront of a movement to give working adults more access to continuing education programs that are calibrated to local hiring demand.”
In addition to classroom instruction, students will spend 20 hours a week on outside projects, homework, and experiential learning activities. They’ll also build a professional project portfolio to showcase their abilities and hone their competitive edge in the employment market. Students will also receive a range of career-planning services, portfolio reviews, recruiting assistance and extensive staff support.
Boot Camp students will gain skills to develop dynamic end-to-end web applications, as well as a Certificate in Full-Stack Web Development from UW Professional & Continuing Education.
