22 students signed up for first run of classes at Betamore incubator

Over the course of 10 weeks, Betamore Academy students spent three hours in classes twice a week on such topics as front-end web development and digital marketing.

Full disclosure: Betamore cofounder Mike Brenner is a partner with Technical.ly Baltimore, which works on occasion from the Federal Hill incubator.

Since opening its doors a little more than a year ago, it has been the position of Federal Hill incubator Betamore that training a computer-savvy workforce can happen outside a college campus.

As Technical.ly Baltimore highlighted in its year-end review, Hampden-based startup Staq went so far as to pay people to learn Ruby programming if they worked for the startup for three to six months.

Betamore took a different approach, thinking that people interested in learning programming skills would pay $3,000 for courses that focused on certain topics, such as front-end web development using JavaScript. There was some interest: 22 students total enrolled in the first run of four classes in web development and digital marketing called the Betamore Academy, according to a year-end review from Betamore.

The incubator and coworking space kicked off classes in fall 2013. Over the course of 10 weeks, Betamore Academy students spent three hours in classes twice a week.
