This summer, Western Nevada College will be offering a brand-new five-day coding boot camp program designed for middle- and high-school students age 12-17. The course is offered in partnership with Alphalancers, LLC, a web design and development company based in Reno, NV.
The Computer Coding Bootcamp for Teens will provide students with an introduction to coding, focusing on HTML. By the end of the week, students will complete their own coding project, and will receive a certificate of completion from WNC. For those students who are interested in technology as a career, the camp serves as an introduction to coding languages and an opportunity for networking with like-minded peers and professionals.
“I was born and raised in Carson City, and I’m excited to share my passion for coding with local students,” says instructor Luis Jacquez. “Coding is a skill that’s in high demand. Middle and high school students can get a leg up as they prepare for college by learning the basics now.” Jacquez is the founder of Alphalancers, LLC, a web design and development company.
This class is open to anyone age 12-17 in the Northern Nevada community. The class runs from July 29-August 2, from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. each day on the WNC campus. The cost for the class is $200. Interested parents and students can call (775) 445-4241 for more information or to register.
