Coding Dojo Launches Corporate Training Program

Companies Competing for Talent in Major Tech Hubs Can Build up the Skills of Internal Employees Rather Than Rely on Outside Recruitment

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwired - May 4, 2016) - Coding Dojo, a pioneer in the coding bootcamp space, today announced the launch of its Corporate Training Program. The program's series of customized courses are designed to help companies stay ahead of the curve by making sure their developers are trained on the latest programming languages, technologies and best practices. The program also offers a structured environment for companies to teach their non-technical employees how to code or to train and transition them into open developer roles.

"By equipping employees with next-generation skills and technologies, companies can become more agile and innovative," said Coding Dojo CEO, Richard Wang. "Couple that with the fact that there will be one million more computing jobs than computer science graduates by 2020, it's clear that companies need to build the skills of existing employees rather than rely solely on outside developer recruitment, which can be an expensive and time-consuming process."

It takes tech companies an average of 39 business days (the highest of any industry) and can cost up to 20% of an exiting employee's annual salary to fill a job vacancy. Coding Dojo's corporate training program offers both onsite and online options, and can be tailored depending on a company's unique needs. Teams can be trained in specific languages or stacks, or dive deep in tracks like web security, web scalability, front-end development, back-end development and database and framework development. Web fundamental courses covering HTML, CSS and Git are offered for non-technical employees, such as marketers and product managers, who could benefit from coding skills.

"Over the past four years we've developed and refined an online learning management system that can be customized for corporations," said Martin Puryear, director of online programs and principal engineer at Coding Dojo. "Regardless of where a company is located, they can have world-class training at their fingertips."

Coding Dojo developed its corporate training programs in direct response to requests from Fortune 500 companies and startups who regularly hire Coding Dojo graduates. Its bootcamps have helped individuals from a variety of backgrounds and skill levels transform into professional developers who go on to be hired by start-ups and world-class companies like Expedia, Microsoft, JPMorgan Chase, DocuSign and Skytap.
