Our latest on Sabio
African-Americans make up only 4% of people in software development jobs, and Latino/as make up only 5% of these jobs in the US (source). Coding bootcamps will graduate over 16,000 students this year and place them into jobs as developers at startups and enterprise companies. 63% of those coding bootcamp graduates are white. In this webinar, we're joined by code schools Turing, Sabio.la, Startup Institute, and Telegraph Academy to talk about racial diversity in bootcamps, why we should change these statistics, and how bootcamps can support students from underrepresented backgrounds.Continue Reading →
We’ve all seen the statistics, and the verdict is clear: women are vastly underrepresented in technical fields. While women are the leading adopters of technology, the software development industry is only made up of 20% women. Course Report wants to see more women in technical roles, and coding bootcamps have a unique opportunity to boost these numbers. One way to attract women to apply and enroll in code schools is through scholarships and financial support, so we’re breaking down scholarship opportunities for women at coding bootcamps. Whether it’s discounts, special contests, or grants, you’ll find it in this comprehensive list of bootcamp scholarships for women.
We keep this list updated as new scholarships are announced; notice a new scholarship is missing? Mention it in the comments!Continue Reading →
Sara Ines Calderon noticed in her startup job that technical skills made employees an "invaluable asset wherever you go," and Sara "wanted to be indispensable." So she drew on her networking connections and met Lilliana and Gregorio, the "mom & pop" founders of Sabio in Los Angeles, California. She is now a student at Sabio and talked to Course Report about Sabio's .NET curriculum, the school's commitment to diversity, and how she's already used her new skills to win hackathons!Continue Reading →

Luckily, she found Sabio.la in Los Angeles and was able to keep working while she trained to change careers. We talk with Nicole about her experience at Sabio and how she landed a job as a web developer immediately!Continue Reading →
