Not just our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. also holds the title of best city for women in tech, makes the top 10 list for cities with the highest paying jobs in tech and is the fourth most desirable city for startups.
With all this momentum and interest in D.C.’s tech community, we are excited to announce a new Back-End Engineering software development course on our Washington, D.C. campus that will begin on November 14! The course, Back-End Engineering with Java, will be offered in an immersive, 12-week format, designed to prepare students to become junior-level developers after graduation.
And with the new course, of course, comes an awesome new instructor we’re excited to welcome to our team – Prakash Subedi. Prakash is an industry veteran with nearly 14 years of Java experience and more than 20 years of experience in the information technology field. He holds a master’s degree in Computer Science from Marymount University and industry certifications in Java programming (SCJP), Oracle database (OCP-DBA), system security administration (DISA-SA).
So why learn Java? One of our local advisory board members – Lalitha Ganesan, a Senior Technical Recruiter at AOL – makes the case:
As a recruiter with 10 years of experience in tech recruiting, one of the most common skill sets I have hired for is Java. The fact is, every language has its strengths and weakness, but Java is arguably one of the most popular programming languages among developers – it’s easy to learn and build, is platform independent, multithreaded and easy to scale. From creating web applications, web portals, customized software to e-commerce and m-commerce, Java is definitely the preferred and most used.
The Back-End Engineering with Java course will begin on Nov. 14, 2016 and prospective students can apply here: https://academy.theironyard.com/get-started.
