Software Development Training & Consultancy
We offer more than a coding bootcamp; we provide a staged approach to starting careers in the tech industry.
Training starts with an intensive 16-week bootcamp covering the fundamentals of software development. The course is hands-on from day one, and you'll build your understanding and portifolio through a series of projects.
Successful graduates of the bootcamp can then transition to a 16-week pre-apprenticeship, where learning continues whilst you work alongside software consultants on real-life projects. You'll then be ready to join a full apprenticeship program, or regular employment, with continued support from Mined Minds.
Mined Minds currently partners to offer training across southwest Pennsylvania and West Virginia. No prior coding experience is required, and we have trained people from 16 to 60+.Read More

Mined Minds Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, with the mission of growing tech hubs in areas of economic need within West Virginia and southwest Pennsylvania. We do this by working with training providers to grow a talented and diverse workforce, as well as working to create and bring new career opportunities to the region.
Mined Minds Foundation believes anyone can have a successful career in the technology industry, and that socioeconomic factors should not be a barrier to entry. We also understand that talent in the software development sector is hard to come by, overpriced, and that the workforce is severely lacking in diversity. By creating new pools of software developers in low-cost areas, the tech industry benefits through availability of an increased onshore workforce, and local communities increase the diversification of their economies.
Please consider supporting our work so that we can bring new career opportunities to more people in need.Read More
