Ever-increasing numbers of universities and colleges are teaming up with bootcamps to deliver tech training. Does your campus need one too? When Doug Schmidt persuaded his institution to sign on with Trilogy Education Services to launch what has become known as the Vanderbilt University Coding Boot Camp, he considered it one more step forward in a 16-year effort to help improve the technology economy in Nashville, where the university is located. As this professor of computer science and co-director of the Vanderbilt Data Sciences Institute noted, everywhere else that he’s lived, worked and taught — Southern California, Northern California, Virginia, St. Louis, Maryland — has “had a really thriving tech ecosystem.” In Nashville, however, small companies, primarily in healthcare, have dominated the tech scene, making for limited opportunities for the school’s graduates who might want to stick around.
