“AI” is the word of the summer, so we’re rounding up all the news we saw about how generative AI tools will support and expand the tech workforce… not deplete it. After a quiet first half of 2023, we finally saw news about recent coding bootcamp fundraises and acquisitions. We learned of two new ways you would fund your coding bootcamp experience: through Americorps or with your 529 account.  Plus, we’ll let you know about the 3 new coding bootcamps that we added to the Course Report directory in July.
