SEATTLE -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Code Fellows, a Seattle-based digital trade school, today announced that it has launched a set of 4-week introductory programming courses designed to teach the foundations of computer science and software development to people with limited technical backgrounds.
“Over the last year, we’ve interviewed hundreds of people who are seeking to switch careers and write code for a living. By far the most common barrier that students face is learning how to build a proper foundation in computer science and knowing which specific set of tools to learn for web and mobile development,” said Will Little, Co-Founder and CEO of Code Fellows. “Our Foundations courses are designed for beginners to survey a large amount of material and set a personalized growth plan for a lifetime of learning.”
Code Fellows, which launched in January 2013, has graduated more than 100 software engineers from its eight-week, full-time coding bootcamps with an average starting salary of $82,000 per year. The top reported salary offer for a Code Fellows graduate in 2013 was $155,000.
