Scott Jones Launches “Eleven Fifty” Globally

Scott Jones, a prolific entrepreneur and inventor who brought voicemail, music discovery and recognition, robot lawn mowers, and several other technologies to billions of people around the world, is at it again. This time, he is launching Eleven Fifty, a sophisticated immersion training program to teach Web and App development.

Eleven Fifty offers a variety of courses including beginning and advanced iOS and Android development, Apple’s recently announced Swift programming language, Java, .Net, and soon, JavaScript, HTML5, SQL, Ruby, PHP, and Python. The courses will have two primary scheduling options for students – immersive courses lasting two to seven days designed to attract students from all over the world in addition to locals. For strictly local students, eight week courses will meet three nights a week.

All of the courses will have a project-centric approach, focusing on apps that students will build themselves, including apps similar to Tinder, Snapchat, Evernote, and others. The thoughtfully sequenced coursework and hands-on methodology are designed to enable students of all experience levels to learn important skills fast.

Eleven Fifty selects only the best instructors from the technical community. Many have years of practical real-world experience and successes, including building apps that have ranked in the top ten in their category in the iTunes store and websites that have ranked in the Quantcast Top 50. Our instructors pride themselves on staying on the bleeding edge of technology, continually learning and integrating that wisdom and experience into their courses.

Qualified students will have the opportunity to apply for Eleven Fifty’s paid “APPrenticeship” Program upon successful completion of at least one course. The program allows high potential individuals to continue to develop their skills outside the classroom by working on real-world client projects, beefing up his or her resume with contributions to commercially viable apps and websites. Unlike strictly academic offerings, Eleven Fifty teaches the entire work flow of building high-impact, commercially viable products. The APPrenticeship program is designed to enable participants to earn money while continuing to learn more comprehensive skills that should allow them to be successfully hired into more experienced developer roles.

“I’ve always been passionate about changing the world in big ways,” Jones said. “Eleven Fifty will help meet the ever-increasing and urgent need for high-performing developers to stay ahead of the warp speed changes in technology in Silicon Valley, New York City’s Silicon Alley, and beyond. I’m excited to help mentor students, especially when they have ‘The Next Big Thing’ clearly in mind. We will be helping some of our students get their ideas off the ground.”

About Eleven Fifty
Eleven Fifty is a world-class immersive training program that will give developers the tools they need to succeed and help ensure they can reach their professional goals whether they are merely polishing skills they already have, or learning completely new ones.
