Savvy Coders St. Louis Announces New Spring Graduates

All have completed Savvy Coder’s intense 60 hour Technology Boot Camp.


Savvy Coders announces its new graduating class for spring 2018. The class includes eight students who have completed Savvy Coder’s intense 60 hour Technology Boot Camp.

The graduates include Ashlea Swindell, Tyler Krszjzaniek, Jennifer Fisher, Sidney Buckner, James Rentchler, Jacob Pelech, Allen Caprola, and Andrew Roby. They have received intensive training on the most up to date techniques on programing languages to include HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript.

“We are excited to announce our new group of graduates. Most are ready to play an active role in helping a company in web based development whether it be as an apprentice, intern or full time employee. JavaScript developers are in high-demand by companies throughout the St. Louis area. Our students are well-schooled and anxious to take the next step in their careers,” said Elaine Queathem, Founder of Savvy Coders.

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.

Many of students receive their training at no charge through a scholarship offered through a joint effort by Savvy Coders, SLATE-The St. Louis Agency of 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.
Since its launch in 2015, approximately 100 individuals have graduated the Savvy Coders program.
