Last May, leaders at Trailhead, the Downtown startup coworking space, said they hoped to start a coding school that would teach coding skills needed by growing tech companies across the Treasure Valley.
Rather than create its own program, Trailhead partnered with the Treasure Valley’s first code school, BoiseCodeWorks, which started offering courses in Garden City last year.
The boot camp-style course will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The course costs $7,800, with scholarships available based on aptitude, financial need or veteran or minority status.
BoiseCodeWorks expects as many as 14 students to enroll in the first Trailhead class. Courses will be taught by BoiseCodeWorks cofounder Jake Overall, who has taught coding courses in Utah as well as in Garden City. His brother, Matt Overall, will bring a decade’s worth of coding experience to the class as well.
