Application and Webpage Coding Training

5/2/2017

Information Session to Be held To Help Train Hamden’s Workforce in Application and Webpage Coding and Tech Skills.

The Town of Hamden is pleased to announce a collaboration between Checkmate, a full service digital agency and Learn To Program TV. There will be an information session on an exciting Boot Camp that will soon be available for people interested in developing skills in coding and other tech skills for the 21st century.

The Information session about Framework will be held at Checkmate on Thursday May 11th at 6P.M. at Whitneyville Cultural Commons at 1253 Whitney Avenue.          

Framework is Connecticut’s own boot camp program to train new web and mobile developers. Framework is distributed and owned by Learn to Program.TV, based in New Haven.

There are few career paths as flexible, lucrative and enjoyable as software development. For decades, the field was difficult to break in to for those who didn’t have university degree in computer science. However, in recent years, the demand for qualified developers has outpaced the supply of degreed individuals. This shortage of computer science degreed job candidates has opened the field to alternative training programs.

Framework is a unique training program for new software and mobile developers that will prepare qualified candidates for their first job in industry even if they’ve never written a line of code before.

The locally based program leverages LearnToProgram.tv’s activity based curriculum tested with over 800,000 enrollments in the company’s online courses. The program utilizes a blended learning paradigm that combines at-home lecture, reading and skill-building combined with mentored instruction and projects in our convenient training center. This approach offers both flexibility for those working and the seriousness of a professional boot camp experience

”This is an exciting opportunity to begin to develop the future economy of Hamden. Technology companies in particular desperately need trained coders and other technology professionals to grow their business and invest in the community. You would also be surprised to understand how those tech skills translate to almost any industry in Hamden from finance to health care to manufacturing. We will do everything we can to support programs like this” stated Dale Kroop, Director of Economic Development and Neighborhood Revitalization.
