We are excited to announce that ALL Code Bootcamp students will receive a 6-month membership to the Bakery as part of their Code Bootcamp tuition! This creates an amazing networking opportunity for all of our students, if you are not familiar with the Bakery, let me give you a quick run down.
The Bakery all started with a crazy little idea to create an environment to unite the thinkers, doers, and creators of our community. An environment to foster relationships between those who have skills to teach and those who want to learn. An 8250 square foot building where people can come together to learn, support, and inspire one another.
The Bakery exists to challenge the status quo and inspire action. It’s a home for thinkers, doers, and creators. It’s more than a co-working space. The Bakery is a dynamic community fostering creativity, collaboration and connection. The kind of connection that grows your network and increases your bottom line.
You can read all about the Bakery on their website, we will be setting up tours for students during the first week of class.
We’re excited about this opportunity and what it brings for our students. If you haven’t signed up for SD Code Bootcamp it’s not too late – sdcodebootcamp.com!
