SARANAC LAKE -- After a successful initial offering, UpNCoding is pleased to announce it is continuing a partnership with North Country Community College by offering another direct-to-work Software Engineering Boot Camp training program this fall.

Based in Tupper Lake, UpNCoding provides public/private software engineering work, as well as educational training that focuses on preparing the next generation of software engineers. Working with North Country, UpNCoding will offer a 12-week Boot Camp course beginning September 26th, 2023.

The direct-to-work course is designed to prepare students for the modern software engineering workplace with the goal of providing opportunities across multiple industries and varying sized companies. In addition to developing knowledge and skills, students will be prepared for the modern software interview processes for various potential entry-level positions, from full-stack engineer to machine learning engineer to data analysis.

The class meets three times per week for three-hour sessions that will be available in a Hyflex format through in-person. or synchronous online instruction, along with recorded sessions to support flexible learning. All sessions will be taught by industry-experienced instructors. The course introduces software engineering principles through instruction-led projects and industry standard tools that students will interact with in their future technology careers.

“We are once again excited to continue our direct-to-work Boot Camp training through North Country Community College,” said Dan Priece, CEO of UpNCoding. “While other institutions focus on front-end app development, UpNCoding is providing a more well-rounded, full-stack education that better addresses the growing needs of the software engineering industry. And, we are developing additional courses in topics such as Security, DevOps, Microprocessor Firmware and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning to better address the needs of the industry and region.” North Country Community College will host the course at its Saranac Lake campus while UpNCoding will provide curriculum and instruction.

“We witnessed how the students from the first course offering were fully engaged, with some already receiving job opportunities,” said Sarah Maroun, North Country’s Vice President of Academic Affairs. “We are excited to again offer this direct-to-work Boot Camp training with UpNCoding. The technical curriculum will provide training as part of a12-week program.” The

course runs for 12 weeks from September 26th through December 14th, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Saranac Lake campus from 4:00-7:00 pm. The format will be Hyflex with in-person, live broadcasting, and recording available. For more information, visit https://www.nccc.edu/coding
