Avg Rating:5.0 ( 1 reviews )

LaGuardia TechHire-Open Code offers free 9-month, full-time free courses in full stack web development and CompTIA training at their New York City campuses. Web development students will learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, Object Oriented Programming with Java and Spring MVC Architecture. This bootcamp is powered by General Assembly, Udacity, Software Guild and Uncubed.com and is sponsored by LaGuardia Community College. The goal of LaGuardia TechHire–OpenCode is to provide free, high-quality tech training and career assistance to young adults (aged 17 to 29) and provide employers with the skilled technology workers they need to grow and expand.

LaGuardia TechHire-OpenCode is meant for young adults who are seeking to pivot into the Tech Industry. No prior coding experience is required, but candidates must meet the eligibility requirements of the program set out by the U.S. Department of Labor. If eligible, a candidate’s next step is to fill out an online form. They will then need to pass a screening process, which includes a test and interview. A candidate must also attend an information session as part of the application process. If accepted, they will be informed on when to begin.

All students receive job search assistance and will be connected to an employer network of large companies and startups, and internship opportunities. LaGuardia TechHire-OpenCode is funded by a highly selective grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, and the result of a White House initiative under President Barack Obama called TechHire. Graduates of the program represent an extraordinarily talented and diverse group of tech professionals that includes a former solution engineer at Salesforce and a U.S. Chess Champion.

      I just finished the full stack bootcamp and have been speaking to an extensive network of alumni and career advisors to help prepare for interviews(technical and non technical), resume help and job search! This bootcamp has taught me so much and am so grateful I found this program to continue my journey in tech as a minority. 

      Not only do they help you learn outside the tech curriculum, but they help direct you to a wide array of resources and generate a career game plan such as what frameworks to learns and next steps towards reaching my goals. 

      They also have a ton of other information on their blog:
