CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

A nonprofit organization gives people their first experience in coding, in hopes that they will pursue a career in technology.

LaunchCode plans to offer the 20-week course in computer programming in Cape Girardeau.

Students will learn foundation concepts, like Python, followed by specialized skill tracks in Java or JavaScript.

“Anyone interested in pursuing a career in technology, regardless of prior experience, will find no better and more affordable learning resource than LaunchCode’s LC 101 course," said Mark Bauer, the company's vice president of operations. "It’s free, open to the public and designed to give participants the in-demand skills needed to launch a career in tech.”

Codefi, the Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce, the Missouri Technology Corporation, and Element 74 helped bring the class to Cape Girardeau.

The classes will be on Mondays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will start on October 24, 2016.
