The coding bootcamp space is certainly not slowing down for summer – in July we read about so many new initiatives happening in the edtech space! Schools raised over $5 million and a bootcamp loan provider raised a $9.8 million Series A round, and several companies like Twitter and huge New York banks are partnering with coding bootcamps to train students. We break down a new income share agreement bill in the Senate, relay tips for determining if an online course is a ‘scam’ and tell you about a handful of new scholarships and apprenticeships. Plus, we’ll share tons of new bootcamps and expansions into new campuses (and we’ll tell you about the one school that closed in July).

Our Favorite Pieces on the Course Report Blog:

Liz had fun interviewing Rachel Bussert, Epicodus’ Director of Student Services who has been coordinating the internship program at Epicodus for over four years. At Course Report, we love internships as an option after bootcamp, and Rachel tells us what she’s learned about finding internship opportunities, the value of an internship before your full-time job search, and how to make the most of an internship once you’ve landed it. Check it out!

Imogen’s favorite was a video tutorial we collaborated on with an instructor from Galvanize data science bootcamp, Sean Reed! We visited the Galvanize campus in Manhattan and made a video about how students can choose between learning Python or R for data science, and what people need to know before they launch a data science career! It’s a quick 7-minute video, so a great watch for anyone interested in getting into data science!
