Due to the situations that are lived now a days, one of the principle actions society must go for is to develop new abilities to strengthen their professional activities and compete in which ever ambit related with labor, thus, making it important to take advantage of the technological revolution.
According to a market study of web developers and digital industries in Mexico, Chile and Peru realized by the National Institute of Geography and Statistics (INEGI), one of the best jobs best paid in our country is web development, making it one of the abilities Mexican businesses focus on.
Due to recent and future job offers focused on technology, Coding boot camps have been developed. These consist in intensive programs designed to teach how to write information codes for software and applications development.
These programs are so simple that no previous knowledge on the subject is needed for these boot camps, anyone from engineers, industrial designers to marketers can sign up. The only requirement needed is to want to learn how to innovate in these software areas.
A great percentage of the people that assisted had no notion of how to program nor understand computer codes, but nevertheless, after the intensive learning program they started to develop abilities to app and digital platform development with a focus on digital economy.
In our country, one of academy institutions that offer these camps is Tecnológico de Monterrey, being linked with Trilogy Education Services, a New York start up that pretends to do something similar that north american universities, like Rutgers and Berkeley.
Hola Code, a bootcamp for repatriated migrants.
Due to thousands of Mexican migrants that are sent back to Mexico, thus, the need of labor opportunities, a start up in Mexico city created an opportunity for them, Hola Code.
This social initiative surged with the objective to help out repatriated Mexicans that have the talent to develop technological jobs in the country. This program is something similar to boot camp Hack Reactor, created in Silicon Valley, this course lasts for five months in which you are given the necessary tools like the fundamentals for programming, and app development without previous knowledge.
This program is very complete, not only does it form the academically but also offers students daily learning, recreational activities, psychological help, access to mentors and monthly salary, all without cost.
