Phoenix, AZ, United States, 2014/04/18 - Desarrollo a recently launched incubator and accelerator program, revealed today its plans to launch Alchemy Lab, a twelve week, hyper-development hacker program for software engineers - AlchemyLab.co.
Alchemy Lab is now accepting applications for its next round of potential participants “Alchemist”.
Alchemy Lab focuses on providing a twelve week hyper-development program, based on the MEAN stack (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, and Node.js). These new technologies are being used by the many of the top Fortune 100 companies and being co-developed with Google. The skills being provided in the program, are in extremely high demand, not only in Arizona but globally.
Alchemy Lab’s curriculum was co-developed with Stephen Ward, a System Architect for over 25 years and leader in MEAN stack and mobile development. Stephen ran a very successful software consulting and training facility in Canada. He was a part of Cognos Inc., a Pioneer in object-oriented coding and then Sybase, the leader in multi-threaded relational databases, where prototyped applications for clients. Stephen was the President of the TSUG (Toronto Sybase User Group), a speaker at the Ann Arbor LIS Symposium, the Developer of the OLIS (Open Lab Information System), and the Developer of Safety Officer II (MSDS).
“We look to help address the dire need for quality software engineers and provide quality career opportunities for our Alchemist.” Said David Rice founder of desarrollo. “Alchemy Lab will provide real world projects to work on and create more mid/senior level software engineers, who are desperately needed in today’s technology consuming world.”
Entrepreneurs, state agencies and corporations are able to submit software development projects to be considered for the Alchemist’s Au Capstone project. These projects bring the Alchemist and ecosystem together to find solutions to real-world problems through facilitator lead projects.
“Alchemy Lab is a great addition to the CIS graduates and great institutional education many receive. The most important part about programming is not about how well you read ones and zeroes, but it is more about an individual can understand how everything works together. We hope to find really great individuals, to be our Alchemist and just show them how to code.” Founder David Rice said.
