JRS Coding School, a 12-week immersive program focusing on software development using JavaScript, has relocated to a new, state-of-the-art building on Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant. The software development school’s approximately 2,000-square-foot suite in the Shem Creek Executive Center on Coleman Boulevard features a flexible classroom space, offices, and a student lounge. Adjacent to Shem Creek Park, the location offers easy access to the park’s boardwalk, water sports and dining.

“We are excited about the new, high-tech learning environment that we’re able to offer our students,” said Tom Wilson, chief technology innovation officer of Tabula Rasa HealthCare (TRHC), parent company of JRS Coding School, and the school’s head instructor. Wilson, who led the initiative to establish the school continued, “Since JRS opened its doors, our goal has remained the same — we want to help grow skilled software developers across the tech industry.”

JRS Coding School was established in 2016 to increase local developer talent and to meet current and future software development demands in the marketplace. Since its inception, three cohorts have completed the 12-week, full time JavaScript class. During the boot camp style program, participants are introduced to software life cycle training, learn how to build full-stack web applications using JavaScript and become proficient in coding at a junior professional level.
