New Hybrid FlexCode™ Bootcamp Removes Barriers for Adult Career-Changers

New Hybrid FlexCode™ Bootcamp Removes Barriers for Adult Career-Changers Computer coding skills can open doors to a challenging and lucrative career in the ever-growing software development industry. But traditional coding bootcamps are often not a viable option for people with a full-time job or family responsibilities – a demographic that often includes women and minorities. That’s why We Can Code IT, a coding bootcamp with locations in Cleveland and Columbus, developed an innovative solution with its new “hybrid” bootcamp. Named FlexCode™, it offers a mix of online and in-person classes for greater flexibility, lower expenses, and a more effective learning model.

Coding Bootcamp Lead Instructor (Cleveland, Part-time / M-Th Evenings)

This position is perfect for a consultant who also wants a steady stream of income while helping mentor new, diverse, developers learn about real-world software and web development. It is a Mon-Thurs evening, part-time / contract position.

“After the We Can Code IT on-site training at University Hospitals, we embraced Agile software development methodology with tremendous success. On a project that was not going well, we were able to develop 1-week iterations where we did a mini-planning session on Monday, committed to stories for the week and then completely tested them by the end of the week. Our teams have really enjoyed moving to a more structured Agile environment with much more collaboration.”

– Andy Laytin, Manager, IT Development, SQL DBAs Architecture, University Hospitals

It takes 6 to 9 months to bring a new developer up to speed. In IT, recruiting top talent is super competitive. So it makes sense to train your internal talent pool, right? A great idea, but most companies find cross-training employees is time-consuming and demands training expertise they don’t always have.  We can help you with this process by applying our assessment tools.  These will help you find out which employees would be best for cross-training as well as which canidates are most adept to join your company.

When growth or turnover hits your IT team, research shows it costs a business about 20% of an employee’s salary to hire and train new talent. If a developer is paid in the neighborhood of $80–$120K —the hiring and training process costs your business up to $24K.*
