BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - June 01, 2017) - To help serve the growing global-wide demand for qualified developers and web programmers, Techknowledgy² Academy, also know as TK2 Coding Bootcamp, opened May 15 in downtown Boca Raton. The new coding school teaches students web development and programming and iOS and Android development.

"We teach the skills that students need to kick start their careers, whether they are recent high school graduates, college students or professionals looking to update their resumes and skill sets," said Mr. Kirk. "We teach programming fundamentals for the most popular technology platforms being practiced in the United States and abroad. TK2 is where students learn to solve problems with code while applying industry best practices in a collaborative environment."

TK2 Coding Bootcamp is also actively recruiting women to the school to help fill the widely reported gender gap in technology. This effort is led by TK2 Academy staffer Ashley Taylor, a web designer, and marketer with a passion for words and a knack for all things Internet. She holds a degree in journalism and graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's in Advertising. Professionally, she's worked in large and small agencies focusing as a copywriter, creative director, SEO specialist and web designer.
