Dev Dev: Summer of Code Application

Are you interested in being a programmer? What about working for a startup one day? Dev Dev: Summer of Code is the camp for you.

PEF, in partnership with AIR Labs and the Benwood Foundation, is looking for students with an interest in coding and a beginning-to-intermediate level of experience to join us for a summer camp unlike any other. You’ll get to learn HTML, CSS, graphic design and 3-D modeling, as well as work with developers and entrepreneurs fueling Chattanooga’s technological growth.

The camp is open to HCDE high school students, although preference will be given to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors.

Dev Dev will meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am to 2pm beginning Wednesday, July 6th through Friday, July 29th . Lunch and snacks are provided every day, and transportation can be made available.

Though the cost of this experience would normally be more than $600, through the support of Benwood, scholarships are available for all 20 participants.

Applications will remain open until June 1st, so don’t delay!
