We’re really excited to be working so closely with an accredited university like UVU, especially because of the unique access to additional federal and state financing it provides to our students.

In positive news for nerds, students, and all humankind, Coding Campus has officially announced a partnership with Utah Valley University. Got questions? Baby, I got answers.

What is Coding Campus? A 12-week web-development course that takes random people off the streets and turns them into prospective developers. It’s a bootcamp for programmers, where graduates have to survive an onslaught of profane drill sergeants and extensive training in Python, Django, and Angular. Actually, I lied — there are no drill sergeants.

What is UVU? A big-time university that I proudly graduated from, caught green fever from, and am glad I don’t have to go back to (let’s be honest, homework is the worst). UVU helps shape students into acceptable human beings, ones that might eventually write for a website like Beehive Startups.

So why is this union important? Now students that want to attend Coding Campus can enroll directly through UVU, allowing them to mine previously untapped areas for financial and educational gain — it’s basically a holy marriage of traditional education and new-age training. Sounds appetizing, no?

“We’re really excited to be working so closely with an accredited university like UVU, especially because of the unique access to additional federal and state financing it provides to our students,” Coding Campus Founder Michael Zaro said.

As we hopefully move towards a future where traditional education and new-age skills exist in harmony, let’s take time to acknowledge this unique partnership between Coding Campus and Utah Valley University: the first of its kind, but hopefully not the last.
