Karl McDonnell, CEO of Strayer Education, explained why coding is one of the hottest careers. Strayer`s newly-acquired New York Code + Design Academy will begin offering classes in Atlanta, Austin, Raleigh, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
It`s no secret that coding is the backbone of the Internet these days and trained coders are in high demand. The work is creative, flexible and pays well. And it`s perfect for Millennials as well as anyone looking for a career switch. That`s why Strayer`s newly-acquired New York Code + Design Academy (NYCDA) is offering classes in Atlanta, Austin, Raleigh, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. to teach the ABCs of Web development, coding and more.
Strayer CEO Karl McDonnell says, 'NYCDA is now offering coding and design curricula built and taught by some of the best developers in the world so students become pros in the basics and build from there for a lasting and rewarding career.'
The new NYCDA schools will open in September 2016 and will offer students coding boot camp courses and various code + design classes. For more information, please visit www.nycda.com.
