FREMONT, CA: Claris International, an Apple subsidiary, has declared the launch of the Claris App Developer Training Program in partnership with software training provider Qwasar Silicon Valley. This 9-month training program offers learners the opportunity to develop coding and low-code app development skills utilizing Claris FileMaker. The program is designed to open career paths in one of technology's fastest-developing sectors while helping close the technical skills gap.
"Closing the massive IT skills gap facing so many businesses and increasing diversity in the tech industry can't happen without broader access to training and technology," Claris CEO Brad Freitag stated. "Qwasar and Claris are both committed to removing barriers by combining solid workforce education with a low-code platform that helps strengthen learners' skills in app development."
The program concentrates on building both technical and business skills to prepare students for practical, real-world application development. Training starts with an in-depth, full-stack programming curriculum, followed by an introduction to Claris FileMaker, so participants gain valuable low-code skills, and completes after students learn about Claris Connect, utilized for creating automated workflows.
"We're committed to closing the skills gap by training developers instilled with best practices and technical ability in software development," stated Kwame Yamgnane, co-founder and CEO at Qwasar. "We're honored to work with Claris because their community is one of the longest-standing and most vibrant in low code. Creating accessible career on-ramps that are skills-based and train to industry standards is part of our mission and our efforts as a Black and woman-founded company to do what we can to fuel diversity in tech."
