Aspiring coders presented a variety of projects including data collection for area real estate agents, an interactive text adventure game, and a real-time educational environment. Some even created a program to fill a need for their current employer.

Over the 24-week course, students learned everything from the basics of coding, algorithms and data structure, to intensive training in Javascript, Node.js, HTML, CSS, jQuery, and C# while creating a body of work for their budding portfolio. The program has already graduated almost 100 new students since it started in 2017.

Meet Dan LaRubio

When Dan LaRubio returned from a second tour in Afghanistan as part of the Georgia National Guard, he had plenty of skills to offer any company. In addition to military service, he had experience as a supervisor in a variety of sectors — business administration, retail and hospitality.

LaRubio wanted to find an employer who would meet him face-to-face and talk about his skills and career potential rather than check off the qualifications listed on his resume. There’s more to a person than what you can list on a piece of paper, he thought.
