'Coding Boot Camp' Offered for Web Developers
UNC Charlotte will launch a 24-week "Coding Boot Camp" certificate program this November to meet the growing local, national and global demand for web developers.
"The innovative, full-stack program is best-suited for motivated individuals looking for a new career challenge — one that puts them in the forefront of the digital economy," said Asher Haines, UNC Charlotte’s director of continuing education.
The Coding Boot Camp at UNC Charlotte, which will run from Nov. 8, 2016, through May 20, 2017, is designed to accommodate the schedules of students and working professionals, with two evening classes during the week (6:30 - 9:30 PM.) and a four-hour class on Saturdays (10:00 AM - 2:00 PM).
Wells Fargo Gift Supports Dance Project
The Wells Fargo Foundation is sponsoring a unique project led by the UNC Charlotte Department of Dance. "Tracing Modern Dance" is centered on the reconstruction of "Tracer," a lost work by modern dance choreographer Paul Taylor. This project will include the first-ever reconstruction residency by the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company and the first local performances of the Paul Taylor Dance Company in 15 years.
"Tracing Modern Dance" is the culmination of an 18-month research project by Associate Professor of Dance Kim Jones. Renowned modern dance choreographer Paul Taylor gave Jones the unique opportunity to reconstruct a seminal early work not performed or seen in more than 50 years. "Tracer," choreographed by Taylor in 1962 with set and costumes by the artist Robert Rauschenberg, does not benefit from the existence of video or audio rehearsal or performance records. Jones will complete her scholarly reconstruction in September during a three-week residency at UNC Charlotte with the Taylor 2 Dance Company. The residency will culminate in the "re-premiere" of the reconstructed "Tracer" in a public performance on Friday, Sept. 30.
UNC Charlotte students will learn "Tracer" and continue to perform the piece in local high schools throughout the coming school year.
