With the goal of helping working professionals become full stack developers, the University of Texas at San Antonio is starting its first coding boot camp on Sept. 8, 2019.

The boot camp is a partnership between UTSA and workforce accelerator Trilogy Education. The program comprises three evening classes and one Saturday class for 24 weeks, with curriculum encompassing coding basics, algorithms and data structure, including intensive training in HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Node.js and React.

In addition to classroom instruction, students will spend a minimum of 20 hours each week on outside projects, homework and experiential learning activities. Students are expected to build professional portfolios through coursework and outside activities and will have access to portfolio reviews and career planning services offered by UTSA.

Participants who complete the program will receive a certificate in full stack web development from the university.

"UTSA is committed to offering opportunities for lifelong learning, and this coding boot camp will serve San Antonians who want to pursue careers in the city's rapidly growing tech sector," said Lisa Blazer, UTSA's senior associate vice provost for academic innovation. "By delivering this program with Trilogy Education, UTSA will expand the pipeline of highly trained developers ready to meet local workforce needs now and into the future."
