Codetrotters Academy Graduates More Students

By on May 2, 2016

SAN JUAN – Pioneering programming school Codetrotters Academy has announced the graduation of 17 more students from its “Intro to Web Development” course, for a total 34 students altogether, that have graduated from the academy since it opened its doors last fall.

Most of the students who have attended Codetrotters did not have prior technical backgrounds, and in “as little as 10 weeks are able to go from zero to hero,” as the company’s CEO and co-founder, Sofia Stolberg, likes to put it.

“We are proud to continue graduating fresh new tech talent to supply the rising demand in the industry. These 17 graduates are ready to use their newly acquired skills to kick-start their own projects or switch professions as they seek to become a part of the burgeoning tech and startup community on the island,” Stolberg added.

At the graduation, which took place April 28 at the Puerto Rico Science, Technology and Research Trust—which has provided merit and need-based scholarships in the past—students presented their final projects to their families, industry professionals and tech companies seeking talent.

“The presentations were varied and students developed all sorts of interesting projects, from webpages for local movies about to launch, to sites for foodies looking to access new recipes and catalog their own, and we even had one student develop a videogame from scratch using JavaScript. Recruiters at the event were very impressed with the quality of the projects and we expect some of them to extend employment offers to our students,” Codetrotters CEO Denisse Rodríguez said.
