UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT ARLINGTON PARTNERS WITH REVATURE TO PROVIDE STUDENTS AND ALUMNI WITH A DIRECT PATH TO TECHNOLOGY CAREERS
RESTON, VA (February 8, 2018) – The University of Texas at Arlington and Revature, a leading technology talent development company, today announced a strategic partnership to provide UTA students with no-cost, hands-on technology training that will help prepare them to fill a demand for highly-skilled software engineers. The region has experienced rapid growth in the number of technology companies residing and expanding operations in the region, resulting in a gap in the workforce.
Revature, a leading technology talent development company, today announced continued growth across every aspect of its emerging talent business. With record revenue growth in 2017, Revature continues its leadership position in the rapidly expanding technology talent sector. This past year they tripled their client base of Fortune 500 partners with which they place their pipeline of newly skilled software engineers. This talent pool has more than doubled in size for the last three years, and the company is poised to be the largest employer of emerging software developers in the U.S. within two years.
Revature’s modern day apprenticeship approach to software training is changing how companies hire coding talent. Its business is growing rapidly because it gives graduates enterprise grade skills and hands-on experience employers seek. Revature hires college graduates full time, and as they complete their apprenticeship, Revature then places them as consultants with their Fortune 500 client base.
In Los Angeles, where I live, there are three things you can always count on. The first is weather — perfect to the point of being boring. The second is traffic — awful to the point of dictating a surprising number of daily decisions about where to go and when. The third is encountering hordes of people who think they can act, write or direct better than the people who make a living in the entertainment industry.
Everyone’s got a screenplay. Everyone’s a comedian. In such a subjective field, with no objective measures of competency or qualification ahead of whether viewers actually watch the end product, millions of people take a shot. It’s no wonder Hollywood Boulevard has been called the Boulevard of Broken Dreams.
With so many candidates for each role, every hopeful knows it’s fairly hopeless unless they have an agent. CAA, WME, ICM, UTA and their brethren represent every working talent in Hollywood. As a result, these agencies wield extraordinary power — effectively deciding who works with whom, and which movies get made. (James Andrew Miller’s recent book about CAA, Powerhouse, tells the story about how CAA decided that the prank-calling “Jerky Boys” should get their own movie, thereby creating the cultural nadir of the 1990s.)
RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pontoon, the global leader in total talent solutions, today announced an exclusive strategic partnership with Revature, an organization specializing in early talent development and technology upskilling, to empower businesses around the globe to engage best-in-class talent and technologies.

Revature’s unique model has eliminated the challenges of early talent hiring, by creating software engineers with specific skills requested by Pontoon’s clients, giving corporations greater control over their talent pipeline.
How could two coding bootcamps close while employer demand for bootcamp grads grows? The answer, in the five years since their founding, is that some schools are still at Version 1 while others continue to innovate. Here’s where the market is going:
Why bootcamps exist
Code schools will graduate 22,000 students in 2017, about half as many as all accredited colleges and universities combined (despite a 200 year head start). The growth comes from millions of adults who picked majors that didn’t deliver a good career, a recognition that they weren’t qualified for the job they wanted, and that employers won’t fund switching careers.
Money Talks News
Imagine if you could pursue an education and land a good-paying job without forking over a dime — or taking out a student loan. In fact, take it a step further and picture getting paid to study.
You can make that dream a reality with Revature, a technology talent development company based in Virginia.
Revature is recruiting students at several U.S. colleges to participate in its free 12-week computer programming boot camp. According to Money, the 40-hour-per-week course teaches students in-demand skills such as Java and data management.
Not only is the coding school free, but Money says Revature also pays its students minimum wage to attend. The tech company also provides students with free housing, according to WindowsITPro.com.

Don’t want to borrow to get the education you need to land a high-paying job? A coding bootcamp is now paying students to learn computer programming, rather than charging tuition — and guaranteeing them jobs when they graduate.
The Virginia-based company, called Revature, is setting up classrooms at college campuses around the country and recruiting college graduates for a free 40-hour-per-week, 12-week crash course in hot skills like Java and data management. The students receive minimum wage during the course. In return, graduates commit to working for Revature for two years, at an annual salary of anywhere from $50,000 to $65,000. (Revature sends its graduates out to work as contract software engineers at firms such as banks, health insurers, retailers and the like.)
