Hands-On Programming Learning in St. Louis & Beyond
SavvyCoders began with one vision in mind: to reach out to people traditionally underrepresented in the technology field and give back to local communities by increasing tech talent and expanding business opportunities. Founded in 2015 by Elaine Queathum & Alex Pearson, SavvyCoders has enabled individuals and organizations alike to learn valuable skills for today’s job market through accessibility.
What started in Nashville, Tennessee, has expanded to two more markets Chattanooga,Tennessee and St. Louis, Missouri, enabling the organization to serve even more people who are interested in learning programming and are seeking a hands-on experience that offers more than just learning.
More Than Just Learning
Online learning, while effective for some, isn’t for everyone. As is the case with many e-learning courses, once you’re through the program it’s still up to you to apply that new or expanded knowledge to the real world. And for those interested in a career in web development, this is where SavvyCoders is able to differentiate itself.
Beyond the hands-on learning in a smaller group setting and plenty of one-to-one time with the instructor (should one need it), SavvyCoders also offers opportunity for those enrolled in their programs to network and connect with recruiters and businesses who can offer many types of employment opportunities beyond the local market that SavvyCoders serves.
