[Update: The curriculum is ready to be adopted. We already have various colleges/universities adopting it. You also stand a chance to win an iPad from Adobe if you can help ensure your local college/university adopts this new curriculum. Even something as simple as a contact in the local college/university can be a great start.]
We have made significant progress from the time we announced the education initiative for ColdFusion. A full-fledged curriculum titled Introduction to Web Development is being developed and we are looking to work with the colleges starting this fall semester. The course will be made available for free with enough focus on web application design, client side and server side development in an effort to give the students a holistic view to web programming.
Here’s the link to the presentation that highlights our goals, approach and the next steps to make the initiative successful.
The ask now from all the ColdFusion enthusiasts is to help promote this new course offering. It could be a promotion by you at your local college or it could be any contact at a college that you would like Adobe to reach out to.
You can either use the slide deck to present about the initiative or use the content as talking points to promote the curriculum.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions/concerns or contacts that Adobe can reach out to : firstname.lastname@example.org
