DENVER, March 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As communities and organizations across the globe brace for impact from the spread of the novel coronavirus, the nation's leading data science and software engineering bootcamp provider Galvanize is prepared to convert their immersive in-person bootcamps to remote learning at any of their campuses across the nation if needed.
"First, and most importantly, our thoughts go out to those affected by the virus," said Harsh Patel, CEO of Galvanize. "As a provider of both online and in-person tech education across the United States, we are working diligently to provide learning opportunities for our students no matter where they are, and no matter the circumstances they face."
Galvanize, which has eight physical campuses in major cities across the United States, already provides remote data science and Hack Reactor software engineering immersive bootcamps for students who choose to prepare for a career as a data scientist or software engineer at home.
Because of these existing remote capabilities, Galvanize anticipates all students will be able to continue their training online if the coronavirus spread impacts a previously scheduled in-person immersive bootcamp.
Galvanize's remote programs are live courses with actual instructors and are not self-paced. The company's remote data science program provides the same Python-based curriculum, real-world case studies, and machine learning concepts as its in-person programs. The full-time remote Hack Reactor software engineering bootcamp offers the same modernized curriculum as the in-person program, which is optimized for academic rigor and efficiency.
State-of-the-art conferencing software allows students to chat and problem-solve with instructors and classmates, and pair programming teaches students to collaborate with other students.
"Many people and institutions are facing difficult choices when it comes to moving forward with personal and professional goals," Patel said. "Whatever happens in the weeks ahead, Galvanize wants data science and software engineering students to know we are here to meet their needs."
