Coding: The Next Big Career Option?

Coding: A College Alternative

KERNERSVILLE, NC -- When you think about potential career paths, you might think: doctor, lawyer, politician, auto repair, or even news anchor. But what about coding?

It's a growing industry and could be considered an alternative to those traditional careers. This morning, Bobby Davis, Co-Founder of Coder Foundry, joined Tracey McCain on the Good Morning Show to talk about the possibilities!

He started Coder Foundry as a possible alternative to traditional college. It's an intensive coding bootcamp that offers hands-on training to provide the fundamental framework needed for career advancement in professional web and software development. They say they can teach people how to become software developers in 12 weeks. 

A 4-week online course costs $350. A 12-Week course costs $9,900, or an 18-Week course costs $13,900. Financing is available for people who qualify.

So what kinds of jobs are available? Coder Foundry's website says According to, North Carolina has almost 19,000 unfilled computing jobs. Local businesses are struggling to find candidates, even though employers are willing to pay entry-level programmers an average of $65,000 per year, the highest starting salary in North Carolina. As part of our ongoing commitment to your success, we offer job placement assistance to every single graduate.
