The Suncoast Developers Guild runs multiple cohorts each year, and the three-month program at the Academy offers a comprehensive curriculum designed to prepare students for the workplace. Encompassing both front- and back-end development, students, graduate with the knowledge needed to build and maintain websites and applications.

We collectively further our goals of creating a workforce prepared with the digital tools they need to thrive. New students enter our doors with each cohort, eager to learn and improve their lives through coding.

OUR STORY

The Suncoast Developers Guild story originated from the Tampa Bay campus of the largest national code school providing hundreds of students with the tools needed to meet their personal and career goals.

When the opportunity arose to form its own entity in Tampa Bay, The Suncoast Developers Guild stepped up to the challenge and chose to move forward while refining its vision and shifting its focus. By expanding the curriculum and sharing our collective coding knowledge we created a model that focuses on what’s essential: educating the community.

While the process will continuously evolve with the community’s help by having an open source curriculum, there is still more work to be done in discovering how we can best expand to help more potential students in the local area.

We will:
• Expand our reach in the community
• Build Suncoast Developers Guild to meet the Tampa Bay area’s growing tech needs
• Continue to improve our program to prepare our students for an evolving tech scene

By giving our students the tools they need to achieve their goals, their current and future projects will foster an environment teaming with opportunities for the community.

Suncoast Developers Guild serves as a hub for the local tech scene, providing a network of alumni, employers, and organizations. We present students with the opportunity to meet others in the field and build connections.

With the community’s support, we can further propel our growing student base in the Tampa Bay tech scene.
