Meet The Next Generation of St. Louis Software Developers at Savvy Coders Demo Day

Hiring Managers are invited to attend this special event March 29 at CIC@CIT


Savvy Coders announces its next graduating class of St. Louis software developers with a special Demo Day, 2:30pm pm to 4pm, March 29, 2018 at CICCIT, The Showroom, at 20 S. Sarah Street in St. Louis, MO.

Each graduate will display their current project built with JavaScript and share their own personal stories. Many students seek full employment, internships and apprenticeships, and each will have their own booth at the event. Hiring Managers from area companies are invited to attend.

“We are excited to announce the date of our next class graduation. These students now know how to use and apply JavaScript and other programs. They have taken a key step to building a career in the high-demand field of software development. We invite area businesses to attend Demo Day and meet our new graduates,” said Elaine Queathem, Founder of Savvy Coders.

The Savvy Coders technology boot camp is an intensive 60 hour course on the most up to date techniques on HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. It is a joint effort of Savvy Coders, SLATE-The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment, and a tech hire grant focused on teaching a solid foundation of software development skills to the underemployed and unemployed in the St. Louis area.

The Savvy Coders program differs from others in that it provides excellent learning opportunities for those typically underrepresented in the field of technology. Classes are held in the evening so students can maintain their existing employment. Class sizes are small and geared for collaborative learning. Instructors meet students at their level providing the best opportunities for one-on-one learning and extra help as needed.

Since its launch in 2015, approximately 100 individuals have graduated the Savvy Coders program.

“JavaScript developers are in high-demand by companies throughout the St. Louis area. We bring our students up to speed quickly and give them the skills they need to enhance or start a successful career,” Queathem said.

St. Louis area companies are invited to send their hiring managers to attend Demo Day. For reservations visit
