This coming January, the University of Oregon is launching its first coding bootcamp: a 24-week, part-time web development program geared toward adult learners and working professionals. Developed by the university's Department of Continuing and Professional Education in partnership with Trilogy Education, the intensive program will cover the foundations of coding, algorithms and data structure plus intensive training in JavaScript, Node.js, HTML, CSS, jQuery, Java and more, according to a news announcement.

The program curriculum will combine classroom instruction with outside projects, homework and experiential learning activities. Applicants should have an understanding of coding basics, but no other training or experience is required. Throughout the program, students will build a project portfolio to showcase their skills. They will also receive career-planning services, recruiting assistance and other advising support.

"This intensive program is designed to give working adults in Portland from all backgrounds and experience levels an entry point into the region's growing digital economy," said Sandra Gladney, executive director of UO Continuing and Professional Education, in a statement. "Increasingly, tech skills are table-stakes for career success. By leveraging Trilogy Education's proven platform and global network, the University of Oregon can give more adults in our community access to a rewarding career trajectory, while at the same time bridging hiring gaps for the city's employers."

Those who complete the program will receive a certificate in Full-Stack Web Development from the University of Oregon. For more information, visit bootcamp.uoregon.edu.
