Why Akron, OH?

The Hidden Gem of the Rust Belt

There are quite a few reasons to attend a coding bootcamp in Akron. Akron has a proud heritage as a leader of industry, and it continues that trend today as a center for programming and tech jobs in the Midwest. Akron sports a 77-acre zoo; the Cleveland Indians AA Affiliate, The Rubber Ducks; and the Akron Art Museum. It’s also only a short drive from the beautiful and scenic Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Enjoy a drink and some music at BLU Jazz or take in a concert at EJ Thomas Hall. If you’re looking for a day trip, Akron is only an hour away from Cleveland, home of Great Lakes Brewing, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and three major sports teams: the Indians, the Cavaliers and the Browns.
