Cleveland Codes Is Hacking Away at Job Skills Gap
Julie Washington, The Plain Dealer
After graduating from Lakewood High School in 2012, Anthony Abdo made burritos at Chipotle and cleaned carpets. He had jobs, but not a career.
His uncle, a web developer in Los Angeles, suggested that Abdo look into computer coding. Abdo enrolled in Cleveland Codes, a 16-week coding boot camp based at Cuyahoga Community College. The effort, which targets low-income and underemployed people, provides the training and skills needed for in-demand information-technology jobs.
