Coder Foundry, which launches its first set of classes July 7, is a three-month intensive coding and programming school for adults. Practicing coding professionals will teach the inaugural class about coding language, and then Coder Foundry's recruiting arm will help place successful students in coding positions with their new skills.

Two classes will be offered each quarter. The Apprentice Class is an introductory class for anyone that wants interested in pursuing a career in this industry. This class will meet at night from 6-9 p.m. Previous coding experience is not required, but a passion for learning and a willingness to work hard is essential. Coder Foundry provides a group of mentors, comprised of senior coding veterans, to advise students and assist them with challenges. Tuition for the apprentice class is $7,800, which includes job placement services.

The second class is the Master Class, a full-time morning class for the experienced IT professional, ideal for individuals with previous coding experience. Tuition is $9,900 and also includes job placement services. There are no guarantees on exact salary or job location upon graduation.

Coder Foundry's Chief Technical Officer, Bobby Davis, said he expects students will secure jobs with an average starting salary of $60,000 to $90,000 after completing the program. He said companies in the Southeast have already expressed interest in future graduates.

Students must apply online at www.coderfoundry.com.  The first class will be limited to 15 students, moving up to 25 students over time. There are no prerequisites, job experience or degree requirements to apply. Applicants can be those looking for additional programming skills or those seeking to switch careers.

"We're expecting to get a strong response to our offering. The demand for this skill set is strong on the east coast and salaries for experienced coders are robust. We hope to keep many of them local to fuel the local tech ecosystem," said President of Coder Foundry, Lawrence Reaves.

Reaves and Davis have been part of the tech landscape in Central North Carolina for the past 15 years. Both have founded software businesses. Davis has run a Microsoft Gold Partner Custom Software Development Firm for the past 12 years, and Reaves developed a North Carolina-based software company into a national footprint. The two are joining together to launch Coder Foundry with a goal of building the tech environment and talent in the southeast.

"We are unique in that our curriculum is central to Microsoft technologies, which is used heavily to drive corporate applications and infrastructure. We chose this approach because our goal is to place graduates in jobs with the companies that use Microsoft to drive business," Reaves added.

"Software developer is the #1 best job in the U.S. right now, according to U.S. News and Report last month," Reaves said. "There is a gap in the education and recruiting system for coders and we are in a unique spot to fill this need and launch people looking for this career direction."

Students will learn front-end and back-end engineering, with such as .Net, HTML, Java, Angular, and C# with a concentration on Microsoft technologies. They will learn how to build products for an enterprise development team, how to build apps, how to build websites and how to get a prototype off the ground quickly and efficiently.

"We aligned our curriculum with Microsoft technologies because so many of the Triad based companies use this technology to run their businesses, and that is goal of the program, to place these students in jobs," Davis added.

The program will be a mix of lectures and lab work.

Classes will be held Monday through Friday, and students should expect to work at least 60 hours a week.

The program is designed for students to attend lectures for a few hours and then work in the lab with our mentors. The coursework is demanding and time consuming. A student can come into the Apprentice class with no background writing code and leave as a professional, junior-level program coder or Web developer, Davis said.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
