Orange & Bronze is currently conducting a five-week Java Boot Camp for Computer Science Professors from some of the colleges and universities in the region.
The list of school participants includes:
- Technological Institute of the Phils (TIP)
- Jose Rizal University (JRU)
- Far Eastern University – East Asia (FEU)
- Asian College of Science and Technology (ACSAT)
- University of the East (UE)
- Asia Pacific College (APC)
- Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC).
The event is an initiative of the Philippines Software Industry Association (PSIA) to bridge IT companies with the academe. PSIA saw the need for instructors to be up to date on the latest information, technology, and current practices in the IT industry. This will narrow the gap between what is being taught in the classrooms and what is needed by the industry. The Boot Camp started on the 24th of September, and is expected to be completed by the 29th of October.
