OpenHub is Congratulating our Summer 2020 Fast Track WebDev Bootcamp Grads!

Four years ago, OpenHub launched the Hudson Valley’s first WebDev Bootcamp and to this day it remains the gold standard for bootcamps in the Hudson Valley. As we celebrate 4 years of students, we add to the celebration with our announcement of our newest class of graduates!

OpenHub’s Fast Track Web Development Bootcamp focuses on essential,
in-demand skills and industry best practices. The curriculum is continually evolving and being updated to keeg current to today’s job market.

OpenHub’s Fast Track WebDev Bootcamp combines tech with entrepreneurship.

Our most recent curriculum began January 2020 and was hosted at SUNY Ulster’s Kingston Campus. The curriculum consisted of six comprehensive courses providing a solid foundation in website development and business skills to graduate with a truly relevant and effective strategy to starting an online business as a web developer or to obtain a job in web development.

OpenHub’s in person location until mid-March 2020.

Zero Attrition during Transition
to Remote Learning

The success of our program is proven by our students. During the six month program, including  during the historic pandemic shutdown, not a single student dropped out.

Overnight our in-person classes pivoted to remote sessions using the Zoom platform to conduct online classes. Office hours were also added to encourage one-on-one time with mentors. Replay of classes were made available and remain accessible to graduates to review or repeat material presented during this challenging period and as continuing support beyond graduation.

Our amazing class of 2020 Bootcampers stuck with the program until the end, despite many needs to pivot and other challenges due to the pandemic shutdown.

What We Learned:

Our curriculum and relationships continue to focus on the Hudson Valley. But the silver lining to the challenges confronted during the shutdown – we found our physical location is not the limit. During this time our local Hudson Valley relationships continue to strengthen. Zoom created opportunities such as giving every student a first-row seat.

Replay of class time served as a beneficial review to practice skills and complete homework in preparation for the next class. And students can share their work or problem-solve in real time with the entire class helping or observing.
