As the end of a year that has been quite unique, to say the least, is fast approaching, it is always a special time for us at CodeBoxx! First because it means the end of the bootcamp journey for graduates who are just about to enter the job market, but also because it means we must prepare for the launch of the next cohort set to start on January 11th.
The end of another cohort
Next week will be the final one of the 16-week journey for the participants of the 9th and 10th cohort. As the cohort has been held remotely due to COVID, all the candidates were pooled together to create one big work environment and it was very helpful as the resources were pooled as well. Moreover, even if the pandemic and the several restrictions put in place made it slightly harder for participants, it gave them the opportunity to be well prepared for the future of work as many positions will include at least partially some remote work going forward. In technology specifically, some companies have even announced they are going full remote for the next few years, with others announcing they are not getting back to the office at least before 2022.
The start of a new cohort, including the first ever Tampa Bay cohort
2021 is going to be off to a hot start with the official launch of the Tampa Bay campus. Even though the first cohort will be launched remotely on January 11th, it’s still a major milestone in CodeBoxx’s history and it is the very first US campus of an expansion plan that contains several new campuses to be opened across the country in the upcoming months and years. With registrants from Tampa Bay, Montreal, Quebec and our Online campus all pooled together remotely in one big cohort again in January, it will create once again an amazing vibe and tremendous support for participants and we are looking forward to get things going on January 11th with our traditional welcoming conference.
2020 has been a challenging year for many people and several businesses with the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19. At CodeBoxx, we were very fortunate to operate in a field and an industry that allowed us to maintain our productivity at 100%. Even better, thanks to the work put in by our team, we were able to produce amazing results, growth and bring CodeBoxx to the next level. Like everybody else, it took some time to adjust in March after the stay-at-home orders were announced, but the accomplishments we achieved in the following months speak for themselves:
- We tripled the number of campuses vs 2019 (Montreal, Quebec and Online), with 2 more set to open in 2021. Tampa Bay will open as soon as January and Philadelphia will follow shortly after.
- We doubled our number of graduates since we started, giving the opportunity to even more people to launch their career in tech. This great year brings our total of graduates to more than 120 graduates! It is an amazing feat!
- Our Digital Solutions Business Unit composed of several junior developers graduated from our bootcamp, literally exploded with some major contracts with companies such as Lucky Brand and Bond, generating more than 2 million in revenue and providing awesome work experience to dozens of junior developers.
