The South Bend Code School, a program that provides computer science education in Indiana and Michigan, has expanded its offerings to include adult learners. The program is debuting with a web development bootcamp during the University of Notre Dame’s first-ever winter session.
The university tapped South Bend Code School to offer a coding bootcamp for non-computer science majors interested in learning more about programming and getting practical experience building web applications.
“Web development is an exciting and versatile field, but the barriers to entry can feel somewhat daunting to those approaching these technologies for the first time,” said Alexandra Sejdinaj, co-founder of South Bend Code School. “This bootcamp supports our company’s mission to make web development approachable and computer science accessible. We are excited to have the chance to expand our offerings to educate adult learners, and look forward to the possibilities of offering this type of programming more broadly in the future.”
“We are delighted to partner with South Bend Code School to offer our students a high-quality bootcamp in web development,” said Elliott Visconsi, associate provost and chief academic digital officer for the University of Notre Dame. “Through this winter session offering, we hope to provide our students with enhanced technical and creative skills. We also look forward to potential future collaborations with the South Bend Code School team.”
Traditionally, coding bootcamps are intensive training programs for software development. The school says the course is designed for students who have no or limited prior coding or programming experience.
