Lighthouse Labs Expands Ottawa Presence Through Full Time Course Offerings

Ottawa, Ontario, March 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lighthouse Labs, Canada’s leading coding bootcamp, is excited to announce the expansion of their Ottawa-based coding education programs. Beginning in Summer 2019, Lighthouse Labs will offer a full-time Web Development Bootcamp in the nation’s capital, along with a host of free coding workshops, hiring events, and other community collaborations.

The expansion of Lighthouse Labs’ Ottawa programming comes in the wake of substantial growth in the city’s tech sector, and an urgent demand for skilled talent. Home to Kanata North, the country’s highest concentration of tech talent, Ottawa is poised to be one of North America’s most prospering tech markets. With the launch of their full-time bootcamp, Lighthouse Labs hopes to contribute to the growing needs of the city’s tech talent.

“Ottawa is a key player in Canada’s tech industry, and a region that we really want to focus our efforts on in the coming years,” said Jeremy Shaki, CEO of Lighthouse Labs. “We have already seen enormous demand for Lighthouse Labs graduates in the city. We hope that through this expansion of our programming, we can offer even more education options to new and experienced developers alike.”

The full-time bootcamp will be run by satellite from Toronto, using advanced streaming technology and in-person mentorship to ensure students have hands-on access to resources. Ottawa joins existing satellites in Victoria and Calgary as Lighthouse Labs’ presence continues to grow across the country. While this is the first full-time program Lighthouse Labs will be offering in Ottawa, the coding bootcamp has had an active presence in the market since 2018 with part-time introductory courses in Web Development and Front End with JavaScript.

The first full-time Ottawa cohorts are scheduled for July and October 2019. Bootcamp candidates in Ottawa are also eligible to take part in the recently-announced financing partnership between Lighthouse Labs and Caisse Desjardins des Technologies de l’information.
