Happy Fall! AI was all everyone wanted to talk about this September, and rather than reading more doomsday headlines, we saw more nuanced (and longer!) articles on how AI integration will actually improve and create more jobs. We saw two tech training programs receive sizable gifts from MacKenzie Scott’s charitable foundation, and a new coding bootcamp merger in south Florida. We’ll let you know how the respected (and free) tech training provider, Per Scholas, is expanding its footprint. Plus, find out which seven coding bootcamps we added to the Course Report school listings!
