Chattanooga’s 1st Coding Bootcamp Covalence Successfully Graduates Inaugural Class

Monday, August 14, 2017

Local coding bootcamp Covalence, held a graduation for its first local cohort on Thursday.

When the course kicked off on May 31, the students had limited or no programming knowledge. After long hours hard at work, they successfully completed the 10-week Full Stack Development bootcamp and graduated as junior-level web developers. The city celebrates and applauds the Covalence graduates as they embark on their journeys to become a part of the tech workforce in Chattanooga.

Covalence hopes to attain the same success with its second cohort which begins on Sept. 5. The final day to submit applications is Aug. 22.

The students showcased their final projects which included McKamey Volunteer Portal, a website that provides a centralized location for information on current adoptable animals at the McKamey Animal Center, co-workers, a platform for people using coworking space to see who else is present in the space, what those people specialize in, and if they are available for the use of their services, and finally Live Local, a website created to display scheduled activities in certain geographical locations. Employers in need of talented developers  can reach out to Covalence to inquire about our recent graduates.

At the Covalence’s Birmingham location, Regions Bank is sending its second set of 10 employees through the Fall 2017 Full Stack bootcamp. Covalence is looking to extend the opportunity for other local employers to send existing and new employees through the Full Stack Development bootcamp in order to enhance or build new tech oriented skill sets.

Officials said, "Covalence will not only continue to focus on teaching the untapped, aspiring developers of Tennessee how to code but also expand our partnerships with local employers to find the best mentors and best job placement opportunities."
