BMCE Summer Coding Boot Camps

REGISTRATION IS OPEN

Summer Coding Boot Camps!

Registration is now open for BMCE Coding Boot Camps I and BMCE Coding Boot Camps II. There are two locations available for both sessions--one in Springfield and the other in Oak Forest.

If you are interested in attending any of these Coding Boot Camps and to insure a seat, please register ASAP.  To register for the Summer Coding Boot Camps of your choice, fill out the Registration form and submit your $75 registration fee by clicking this link.

Summer Coding Boot Camps Overview

Provide accelerated instruction in software development for in-service business teachers. Instruction will be offered in 2 three-day blocks. The first block will have no prerequisites, and will take teachers to basic web applications that can also be re-purposed as multi-platform phone and tablet apps. The second block expects knowledge of web applications, and goes into a data-centric view of applications that can run on a web server.

Both courses will be highly interactive with instruction followed by hands-on development time. We will use open-source and free materials throughout. Lab computers may be available, but any laptop computer (Mac, Windows, Chromebook) will be sufficient. (Tablets may work if they have a keyboard.)

Wherever practical and possible, topics in the courses will be tied to relevant standards so teachers will be able to easily reinforce state and national standards for computing, programming, and application development.
