Codetrotters announces scholarships for iOS courses
SAN JUAN – e-Nabler Corp., a provider of mobile POS software, and Rocket Farm Studios, a Boston-based mobile development studio, announced Tuesday that they would sponsor two “high-potential” students for classes at Codetrotters Academy, Puerto Rico’s first coding boot camp.
“At e-Nabler we are always looking for the best tech talent to keep growing and servicing our international clients. Finding app developers on the Island is not an easy task and that’s why this partnership with Codetrotters is so welcome,” e-Nabler founder and CEO Joel Vázquez said.
Daniel Katcher, founder of Rocket Farm, became interested in the island’s tech talent through Kevin López, a former app developer at Wayfair who has been working with Katcher.
“Kevin is one of the most talented iOS developers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. When I found out he had moved to Puerto Rico and was teaching an iOS course, I immediately became interested in the local talent that would graduate from his class,” Katcher said. “We are always looking for top talent at Rocket Farm and we now see a unique opportunity to attract tech talent from Puerto Rico while also contributing to the development of the tech scene on the island.”
Students selected for the scholarship will have to demonstrate not only basic programming knowledge, but also the talent and determination to pursue careers in the mobile app space. Once the course is over, e-Nabler and Rocket Farm will evaluate graduates and determine whether to extend offers.
“In our tech ecosystem, iOS developers are a rarity. We have been wanting to launch this course for some time, but had not found instructors with both the time and knowledge to teach it,” Codetrotters founder Sofia Stolberg said of the importance of launching the new course offering. “We’re excited about the prospect of increasing our mobile developer community and of expanding remote work and international opportunities for our tech ecosystem.”
Applications for the scholarship close March 22.
