Beaufort Digital Corridor offering CODEcamp this spring

2 mins read

The Beaufort Digital Corridor has announced a spring offering of its “CODEcamp – Introduction to Web Development” class. Registration is open now for this limited-seating opportunity.

CODEcamp is a project-based, introductory code education program designed for busy adults of all backgrounds and experience levels in a convenient, affordable after-hours guided class format. Students learn fundamentals of HTML, CSS and JavaScript with a combination of written and verbal instruction using real-time online programs that show results instantly.

Instructor Matt Shaw, senior software engineer, will again lead the eight-week CODEcamp course, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays from March 23 to May 11 at the Corridor’s BASEcamp facility. The Corridor is currently looking for sponsors for the program and funding to enable two students to take the CODEcamp course on scholarship.

In addition to CODEcamp, the Corridor has introduced SC Codes, a free continuing education platform that students can access at their own pace from home, or through in-person events and mentorship at partner sites. BASEcamp will act as a partner site for participants to gather once a month and practice what they have learned. CODEcamp participants are encouraged to further their education via SC Codes.

The Digital Corridor has partnered with Build Carolina to connect South Carolinians to the education and resources they need to unlock careers in technology. The free code education initiative provides further knowledge in the languages introduced at CODEcamp and includes other relevant coding languages like Command Line, Ruby, Java, and React.js. 

“Connecting to the state’s initiative is a powerful way for Beaufort to get in on an important future workforce resource” said Shelley Barratt, Beaufort Digital Corridor Program Manager.

Registration is open at eventbrite.com using keyword “CODEcamp.”
