Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) August 15, 2016
The Iron Yard, the country’s largest immersive code school, today announced a new Back-End Engineering software development course that will begin on September 6 at the Orlando campus. The course, Back-End Engineering with Java, will be offered in an immersive, 12-week format designed to prepare students to become junior-level developers after graduation.
"The demand for software developers in Orlando is huge and employers are looking to tap into local tech talent to fill these positions," said Susanna Miller, campus director for The Iron Yard in Orlando. "Based on job posting trends and feedback we have heard from many local employers, we saw a need for more Back-End developers who know Java. We are excited to add an immersive Java course to our Orlando campus offerings and equip students with skills that employers need to hire for.”
The Java course will be taught by Jason Skipper, an industry veteran with nearly 20 years of Java experience. He is a Certified Java Developer with both a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from the University of Florida. Jason has worked in the Orlando tech industry for the last 18 years, from Lake Mary to Lake Buena Vista, and brings an industry insider's view to the classroom. He first embraced teaching at local summer coding camps and furthered his skills by moonlighting as an instructor at local community colleges. He now teaches full-time for The Iron Yard.
The Iron Yard’s full-time, immersive programs are designed to mentor people of all backgrounds into becoming professional junior-level programmers in 12 weeks. With the support of experienced, full-time instructors and a robust career services program, students are provided with the resources they need to master in-demand skills, build a portfolio and navigate the job search process.
