In the past, computer science and coding were seen as uncreative and uninspiring; a niche area best left to the experts (and the geeks) but in the 21st century, this is no longer the case. Nothing demonstrated this better than Ironhack’s recent Hackshow that graduated nearly 20 students from diverse backgrounds as Jr. Web Developers into Miami’s tech community. Ironhack is a leading international coding bootcamp with campuses in Miami, Madrid and Barcelona. The student projects were built from scratch and included apps designed to solve real-life problems in various industries. These projects included – “Litigrade,” “DocDoc Who’s There,” “Orthodox Chic,” “MyFunTrip” and “STRIPPRS.” The panel of judges was comprised of some of the leading CTOs in South Florida – Tobias Franoszek, CTO and Co-Founder of KIPU Systems, Brett Paden, CTO and Co-Founder of Glip, and Rich Kroll, Director of Engineering at Modernizing Medicine.
