The courses will take place at Palm Beach Tech Space  (313 Datura Street #100, West Palm Beach) and Lynn University (3601 N Military Trail, Boca Raton).

The Palm Beach Tech location will be led by Jeremy Lawson, who has over fifteen years of experience in the industry as a developer, instructor, and more. The Lynn University location will be led by Andrea Bailey who has over ten years of experience as a talented front end engineer and instructor.

The course will begin at both locations on Monday, June 25th and take place on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM for twelve weeks. The technologies and frameworks covered will include JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Git, ReactJS and JQuery.
