Technology incubator ConnecTech is to offer a two-day mobile app development boot camp on Monday and Tuesday next week.

The course, which runs each day from 9am until 4pm, will be led by software development expert Jayper Sanchez, who works with ConnecTech partner company AG Global Services in Toronto. The course is open to all ages and skill levels, the company said.

Developers and enthusiasts can expect to learn, build and deploy a mobile app using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript and other open source tools. The course, offered for $350, has a few spots remaining. Interested parties are encouraged to visit www.connectech.bm to register.

Mr Sanchez has led a week-long intro to javascript boot-camp that wraps up today. Mr Sanchez, ConnecTech said, has 20 years of software development experience specialising in web applications, mobile applications and decentralised application on blockchain technology.

The course was offered as both a day and evening workshop providing hands-on learning tailored for various ability levels and students of all ages ranging from eight years old to adults, ConnecTech said. The course is designed to provide students with a strong understanding of the fundamentals of building and the ability to create a basic web application.

JavaScript’s popularity, ConnecTech said in a statement, means it is not only essential for front-end developers, but backend and full-stack as well. While there are plenty of free resources already available to people who are learning how to code, piecing together different resources can be time-consuming, and it can be difficult to gain a cohesive understanding of the landscape, the company said. Most of all, learning on one’s own also tends to take longer, because it’s usually not possible to get personalised feedback when you’re stuck, ConnecTech said.

Kameron Young, who enrolled in the class, said: “I am really enjoying it. Jayper has given insight into how I can take my coding to the next level and he explains everything in an easy to understand way. I am looking forward to the app building class next week and I cannot wait to begin developing my skills further.”

Coral Wells, founder and chief executive officer of ConnecTech, said: “It has been a pleasure hosting Jayper in Bermuda. Our mission at ConnecTech is to facilitate technology skill development for all Bermudians. Our partnerships with international tech organisations like AG Global Services allows us to leverage curriculums and expert educators that are not readily available on island. It provides an opportunity for Bermudians to gain exposure to international education programmes without having to leave the island.”

The company said it will be offering the courses again in October along with various other programming classes in the fall. Details of the upcoming classes will be posted to the ConnecTech website at www.connectech.bm.

All sessions are held at ConnecTech, Sofia House, 4th Floor, 48 Church Street, Hamilton.
