The courses are open for anyone to enroll to become certified in web development or user experience design. The DEDC is also offering a scholarship program to help local Dumas applicants.

James DeCicco, CEO of BeachCoders, said in a press release “The goal of the program is to provide these rural area students access to high-quality, in-demand education so they can participate in the surging US tech workforce remotely and bring more economic inclusion to the area.”

The available certification courses provide instruction in front-end web development and user experience (UX) design.

BeachCoders says the training program will be delivered live online, with 100% live instruction in an exclusive 1-on-1 format and also in small (up to 4) ‘lifeboat’ groups, where all the students support one another to successful completion.

The program is open now and students may apply online at DumasEDC.org for approval to receive a full scholarship for this training.

Coding bootcamps have become an alternative route to enter the computer programming job market, especially in the field of web development. Organized “Bootcamps” began appearing around 2011 and many options exist today, including free, commercial, and institutional-based coding bootcamps.

Computerscience.org has compiled a list of the 15 best online coding bootcamps offering intensive, relatively short technical training in web development coding languages and frameworks. Their ranking list is based on several factors including online learning, tuition prices, course offerings, job placement assistance, and CIRR membership.
