Today, Coding Dojo, a coding boot camp, announced that it is opening new locations in Dallas, Washington and Chicago. Coding Dojo will double its number of existing campuses, which are currently located in Los Angeles, San Jose and Seattle.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be 1 million more computing jobs than computer science graduates by 2020. Coding Dojo wants to increase its capacity to train 100,000 programmers in the next five years.
“There’s a huge shortfall in capacity for training skilled developers, leading to both an exploding market and a serious issue for the U.S. in terms of global competition,” said Coding Dojo CEO Richard Wang.
Coding Dojo gives both new and experienced developers hands-on coding experience in as little as 14 weeks. Besides its new locations, Coding Dojo is also expanding its online program in 2016 to bring developer training into the homes. New online programs will be offered to fit the needs of experienced and aspiring developers, the company said. There will also be hybrid solutions in conjunction with an expanding on-campus presence.
SmartBear releases new automated API testing solution
SmartBear Software has released Ready API TestServer, a new automated API testing solution that allows developers to find bugs faster and speed up the delivery of robust APIs.
To meet the challenge of releasing new versions of software faster, developers look for technologies that help them when designing, testing and deploying, which is why it is particularly important to test APIs, according to the company. APIs represent the building blocks of business functions and revenue streams.
The Ready API TestServer is the latest addition to SmartBear’s API quality platform, and it provides an approach to automated API testing that simplifies activities between developers and testing engineers. Now both developers and testing experts can express tests as code to integrate functional testing earlier in the development cycles, generate test recipes through scripts and other frameworks, and execute parallel testing processes on a consolidated set of resources.
Developers using TestServer can use the tools they are familiar with, as well as code in IDEs and scripted commands to develop test “recipes” that can be used to perform automated regression testing after each build, according to the company.
