Dev Bootcamp is offering a scholarship to celebrate women in computer science. It is named after Ada Lovelace, who wrote the first computer program. She was history's first computer programmer. The computer programming language "Ada" was named in her honor.
Dev Bootcamp will fund 6 young women in the San Diego area to attend one weeklong, afternoon computer science summer camp held at UC San Diego. Camps cover a variety of topics: game design, virtual reality, wearable computing, Python, Java, etc. The Ada Lovelace scholarship will provide full tuition from Dev Bootcamp to any one camp offered between June and August.
Dev Bootcamp is an 18 week coding program for beginners and career changers. It was the first immersive coding school, and has refined the art and science of cultivating developers with in-demand technical and interpersonal skills. The intensive bootcamp helps you master the skills you need to accelerate your career and change your life.
