Tech Talent South's (www.techtalentsouth.com) mission is to develop more tech talent in the Southern United States and beyond through immersive beginner-focused programs teaching web development and computer programming. We want to do our part to help put Wilmington on the map as the next big tech hub and empower creative thinkers in the area with the skills they need to drive innovation. In addition to offering kids coding camps throughout the region, Tech Talent South offers 8-week Code Immersion Program for adults in the Wilmington area.

In our Code Immersion Program, we teach the following:

· Ruby on Rails

· Domain Modeling

· HTTP and "RESTful" Design

· HTML/CSS

· Javascript and AJAX

· How to utilize APIs

Students come out of our program with a tremendous foundation in web development and the know-how to code, design, and ship dynamic database-backed web applications. Creative thinkers and entrepreneurs are empowered with the skills to quickly develop their ideas and push them live to the web.

We are always looking for passionate, persistent, and creative people looking to do something BIG in Wilmington. If that sounds like you, check out our website to learn more.
