.NET Bootcamp coming (again) to Detroit

I’m teaming up with Grand Circus to deliver another .NET developer bootcamp this Spring. This bootcamp will teach the core skills necessary to build modern web applications using ASP.NET and the core .NET framework.

For most of my regular readers, this bootcamp is probably too introductory for you. It does not assume that your have any prior knowledge of C#, or ASP.NET. We start at the beginning, and move as fast as possible to learn the core skills needed.

However, if any of you have friends or associates that are interested in making a career change and learning to be a developer, this is a great way to start. During the 8 weeks, students learn the core skills needed to make that transition. In addition, Grand Circus will be providing placement assistance to help students land that first developer position.

If anyone you know wants to become a developer, and be part of Detroit’s Renaissance, tell them to sign up here. We had great success with the first bootcamp (over 80% of those students have landed developer jobs), and I’m anticipating the same outcome this time.
