The Detroit Developer Academy, opened last week, an academy that has been created in collaboration with Michigan State University and is included within Apple’s Racial Justice and Equity initiatives.
This academy It is the first for developers that Apple opens in your country and it is added to the one that Apple opened a couple of years ago in Italy and the one that will soon open in South Korea. In the statement in which Apple has announced the inauguration of this new academy, we can read:
The academy, Apple’s first in the US, will help prepare its students for jobs in the thriving iOS app economy.
In addition to the fundamentals of coding, academy participants will learn design, marketing, project management, and much more, with an emphasis on inclusion and positive impact on their communities.
Launched in collaboration with Michigan State University, the academy is part of Apple’s Racial Justice and Equity Initiative, an effort to address systemic racism and expand opportunities for communities of color across the country.
Sarah Gretter, Director of the new Apple Developer Academy, has shown his enthusiasm to see how all students create a new application and develop their skills to market it.
Our goal is to create new avenues and new opportunities for a diverse group of 21st century technology leaders, and we are proud to be working with Apple to bring this vision to life.
I’m inspired by our first class of students, and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes them, whether it’s starting a new business, creating a new app, or developing new marketable skills.
