CODEcamp to Add Website Basics Class to Course OfferingsCharleston Digital Corridor Release
New Class Targets Business Owners and Career Seekers
Charleston, South Carolina - May 24, 2012 - The Charleston Digital Corridor is pleased to announce the addition of a Website Basics class to its recently launched CODEcamp augmentative education initiative. This course, starting June 5, 2012, will be held from 6:00-7:30 pm once a week for six weeks at the Flagship2 business incubator facility in Downtown Charleston.
"This introductory course targets two distinct groups: students or recent graduates exploring a career in web development and business owners and individuals who want to equip themselves to control and edit their own websites, " said Digital Corridor Director, Ernest Andrade.
CODEcamp courses are designed in collaboration with Digital Corridor companies to address their immediate hiring needs. Currently, the Digital Corridor's Talent Portal boasts nearly 200 jobs from 25 companies, most of which require, at a minimum, these basic web skills.
Since CODEcamp is a year-round initiative, new courses will continually be introduced based on market demand. Applications for the Website Basics class are being accepted at CharlestonCodes.com.
CODEcamp is an independent, augmentative education program conceived in collaboration with software companies in the Digital Corridor to teach a limited number of computer code classes in high-demand subject areas. More: www.charlestoncodes.com
