Why We’re Offering $4,000 IOS Bootcamp Scholarships.

Parallax Code Academy is thrilled to announce that we are now able to offer scholarships of up to $4,000 for the spring 2017 IOS development bootcamp sessions. But you must act fast! There are only 7 seats still available.

Parallax Code Academy's mission is to bring the opportunity of learning mobile application development to as many New Mexicans as possible.

We’ve scheduled the classes in the evening so students, working professionals and veterans can become up-and-running mobile application developers in just 12 weeks. In this field, there is no need to attend college for four years and accrue tens of thousands of dollars in debt.

“We are investing in our students as much as they are investing in us. We have seen an overwhelming level of interest in the IOS Bootcamp,” says Charles Ashley III, Parallax Code Academy’s Managing Partner. “People really wanted to attend, but the cost was just a little too high for some. We think that these $4,000 scholarships will put the iOS mobile app development course within reach of almost everyone.”

With the cost of the IOS bootcamp slashed nearly in half, we expect the floodgates of applications to open. To schedule your meeting with a Parallax Code Academy advisor, click here.  

According to CNN, which listed Mobile App Developer as America’s #1 job for 2017, the median pay for a mobile app developer is $97,100 (the top pay was $133,000).

Most importantly, mobile app growth isn’t a fad. According to CNN the 10-year job growth for mobile app developers is 19%. If instead you want to be your own boss, Apple developers earned $20 billion in 2016, up more than 40 percent from 2015.

“We can help you develop apps and we will give you the tools and the guidance you can use to make your mark in the IOS marketplace.” says Brandon Trebitowski, Parallax Managing Partner and curriculum development manager, and CEO of Pixegon.

Unlike an online course that requires you to find your way through a one-size-fits-all system, the Parallax Code Academy IOS Bootcamp is a hands-on, in-person coding course. The curriculum was developed by tried-and-true coders who have created thriving mobile application businesses. Students are taught by working professionals, in a small classroom setting, which is a proven successful model for education.

If you’re worried about the effect that being a professional mouse potato might have on your butt, enrollment comes with a gym membership at Simms Fitness. After your workout, you can enjoy a free weekly growler from Red Door Brewing Company. Both are located downstairs from Parallax Code Academy at the Simms Building on the corner of Fourth Street and Gold Avenue, in downtown Albuquerque.

Parallax Code Academy’s next 12-week IOS bootcamp starts on March 6th and runs through May 26th. Evening classes run from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

NEW MEXICO LEADS THE CURVE WITH TRAINING FOR CNN’S #1 BEST JOB IN AMERICA

2017 Best Job: Mobile App Developer.
Parallax Academy offers IOS bootcamp in downtown Albuquerque.

CNN has listed Mobile App Developer as America’s #1 job for 2017. New Mexico startup Parallax Code Academy is offering an IOS bootcamp in March to train mobile app developers in just 12 weeks.

Here are CNN’s reasons for ranking Mobile App Developer as #1 Job in America:

  • Median Pay: $97,100
  • Top Pay: $133,000
  • 10-year job growth: 19%

Quality of life ratings:

  • Personal satisfaction: A
  • Benefit to society: C
  • Telecommuting: A
  • Low stress: A

CNN is just confirming what local New Mexicans, Charles Ashley III and Brandon Trebitowski, have been saying all along.

“I have seen how teaching New Mexicans how to code has transformed their lives,” says Charles Ashley III, Parallax Code Academy’s Managing Partner, and founder of Cultivating Coders, which teaches coding in rural America and underserved communities. “At Parallax Code Academy we’re committed to teaching the tools needed for students, working professionals and veterans to create a better, more promising future for themselves, and benefit their communities.”

“I launched my mobile app business while touring America in a converted school bus with my wife and three kids,” says Brandon Trebitowski, Parallax Managing Partner and curriculum development manager, and CEO of Pixegon. “Now, with first-hand experience in the mobile app development business, I can attest to how liberating and rewarding this industry can be. Not everyone is going to be able to run an app business from a hammock on the beach, skiing on a mountaintop or exploring the great outdoors. But the potential is out there, as are strong entry-level jobs for people just starting out in this growth market.”

Apple also released staggering revenue numbers for mobile app developers. According to ComputerWorld:

Apple’s big news this morning...is that it sold an astonishing $240 million in digital content to customers in just one day on January 1, 2017.

Apple also tells us developers earned over $20 billion in 2016, up over 40 percent from 2015. Developers have earned “over $60 billion” since the App Store launched in 2008, the company said.

Decode this information slightly and you’ll see that Apple’s focus on its services segment is paying off – over one-third of the cash developers have generated through App Store sales was raised in the last year.

“We’re excited about teaching how to develop apps in just 12 weeks of evening classes, at just a fraction of the time and money of a four year mobile app developer degree,” says Ashley. “Not only that, but we focus specifically on the tools you need to land a job and start your career.”

For even better measure and a strong localist push, enrollment comes with the benefit of a gym membership at Simms Fitness, and a free weekly growler from Red Door Brewing Company (both located downstairs from Parallax Code Academy at the Simms Building on the corner of Fourth Street and Gold Avenue, in downtown Albuquerque.

Why Mobile App Development Skills Are in High Demand

Why Mobile App Development Skills Are in High Demand

We all have our favorite mobile apps, from Pinterest to Pokémon Go. It's increased demand for mobile apps like these that have made it challenging for firms to find candidates with mobile app development skills.

Add to this a lack of relevant mobile application development training and curriculum offered by higher education today, creating an increasingly competitive hiring market and escalating application developer salary requirements.

The mobile application industry is booming, with total revenues from mobile apps projected to reach $99 billion by 2019. Not to mention that starting salaries for those with mobile application development skills are expected to see a 3.4 percent increase in 2017, to a range of $118,750-$182,250.
