If you need to learn coding, there is a local Alabama company that can help!  Birmingham innovator, Covalence has recognized the need for a fast-track method to train the next generation of software developers.  Matt Landers, Will Johnston and Matt Morgan, founders of Covalence, began the coding boot-camp after realizing how difficult it was to find qualified developers in Birmingham for their software company, Platypi.

Since the launch of Covalence in 2015, the coding boot-camp has created a hub for its recent graduates. These new developers not only work for numerous companies in the Birmingham metro area, but they are also starting their own businesses.   This summer, from June 4th to August 3rd, Covalence will host its first Catalyst program. This extensive course of study will equip aspiring coders with the essential skills required to become a Full Stack Developer. If you’re local to Birmingham, signing up for the Catalyst program by May 25th will give you $1,000 off the standard program fee!

The Catalyst program is a fully immersive 9 week boot-camp covering the same content as the previous in-person classes. However, with the Catalyst program, students can opt to take the class remotely or come in to HQ to take the class in-person if they are local to Birmingham.  There are only 10 seats available per class. Each class will be assigned a dedicated instructor and students will progress through the coursework together as a group, whether they are completing the program in-person or online.

Covalence offers a free Catalyst prep course that must be completed prior to attending the Catalyst program. Interested students can start the prep course for free today.  Below is a list of topics taught in the Covalence Full Stack class.

  • Fundamentals of Programming
  • Front-End Development
  • Back-End Development
  • Databases
  • Agile Development

The total cost of the Catalyst Program is $5,999 ($4,999 for Birmingham locals.) Looking for financing? Click here to learn how you can pay as little as $135/mo.  The application deadline is May 25th.

The comprehensive program has no age requirement. Anyone with an inkling of interest in coding is welcome. Many Covalence graduates previously earned four-year degrees with a wide array of majors and now want to become more marketable by learning to code.  Covalence is looking for those who desire to learn how to code and find promising careers as developers. No prior experience is necessary. The emerging tech scene in Birmingham and beyond is calling. Ready, set, code!
