Southeast Asia’s First 10-week Training Programme for Web Developers Launches in Singapore

DevRubyCamp , Southeast Asia’s first 10-week web developer training program has launched in Singapore. The full time programme will run three times annually, with each course lasting 10 weeks. DevRubyCamp targets to train up to 60 software developers over three courses a year in Singapore.

The inaugural program will offer up to 20 slots for candidates to join the first cohort. The programme will start on 6 January 2014 and run to March 17, 2014. Applicants will not require prior programming knowledge. Students will get intensive training and mentorship from industry experts to guide them on their path to becoming web developers. Students will complete the course with over 600 hours of learning and development tutorials and experience.

“We are solving a marketplace problem by training and fulfilling the need for programmers at software companies that are looking to scale quickly,” said DevRubyCamp co-founder Josh Teng. “Many aspiring programmers want to work in technology startup companies but lack the required experience and skills in modern web development” Teng added. “Our goal is to close that gap and help our graduates get those jobs and start those companies.”

DevRubyCamp is looking to train smart, driven individuals who are motivated to start their own companies or find a job in the technology industry as a web developer upon completion of the training program. The key objective of the program is to speed up the time taken to traditionally learn web development and ensure trainees can quickly contribute to development teams upon graduation. At the end of the program, students will be able to develop full-stack web applications with Javascript and Ruby.

DevRubyCamp will work with selected startups and web development teams in Singapore and Southeast Asia to offer job placements for companies looking to hire entry-level web developers.

Registration is currently open and candidates can apply for DevRubyCamp at . DevRubyCamp charges a tuition fee of SGD 7,000 for the 10 week programme. Registration will remain open until 28 December. Early bird applicants that complete registration by 28 November will enjoy a SGD 2,000 discount on the tuition fee.
