TAMPA, Fla., July 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The demand for professional computer coders continues to grow and the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that by 2020 there will be 1.4 million coding jobs available in the American workforce. To enable U.S. veterans to tap into this pipeline of opportunity, LaSalle Computer Learning Center in Tampa is offering full scholarships to its Web Application Development Diploma Program, which teaches how to code.
This comprehensive program will cover what local area employers are looking for Junior .NET Web Application Developers.
"Military families and veterans have been an important part of the Tampa Bay community's fabric for many decades contributing to its strength, diversity and vibrancy," said LaSalle's Associate Director and Military Liaison, Kasandra Perez.
