Collaborating with Colleges/Universities

We enjoy working with colleges and universities to develop programs that their schools can offer to introduce more non-computer science majors to coding. Students gain experience using tools and methods that are used in professional settings. They also develop a portfolio of work that adequately demonstrates the relevancy of their knowledge and skills to potential employers. This type of program development is beneficial to students who are considering the further pursuit of knowledge in computer science and related fields of technology.
