As we kicked off Spring, the international coding bootcamp space saw $34 million in fundraises to help expand their technical skills training efforts. The federal government issued three new bills to expand workforce development and skills-based hiring, and Big Tech banded together in a new AI consortium with the focus of reskilling 100 million workers. We celebrated Earth Day with a roundup of five greentech jobs that you could land after graduating from a coding bootcamp. Plus, learn more about the 4 coding bootcamps we added to the Course Report listings this April!
