TeamSparta Inc., a Korean educational technology startup, has officially launched the ‘Sparta Coding Club’ in Japan, an online coding education service for Japanese who are outside the IT development sector, according to the company’s announcement.
‘Sparta Coding Club’ is an online coding lesson service that ranks first in the Korean coding education sector regarding customer satisfaction. It provides practical coding education for beginners who need to gain experience in coding. This entry into the Japanese market is expected to serve as an opportunity to provide training for IT skills that can be used for practical affairs to non-IT majors in Japan.
Commenting on the latest development, Hyungeun Lee (Victoria Lee), Global Team Leader of TeamSparta Inc, said:
Japan is geographically close to Korea and has many similarities in market conditions. With the growing need for coding among non-developers, Sparta Coding Club will be able to quench the such thirst for education. Starting with e-learning classes, we plan to successfully settle in the Japanese B2C market and expand into the Japanese B2B corporate training market.
Additionally, for each semester, courses are delivered online on Zoom and Gather, a metaverse platform, for 5 hours from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. every weekend. The first course in Japan started on April 15 with 18 students and will finish on June 4. The tutor is Daiki Nagashita, a developer at Pocket Change Inc. Currently; it is accepting applications for the second semester. The first course of the upcoming semester will start on May 29, and anyone who wants to learn coding can apply. The first-semester course includes those from various backgrounds, such as IT sales, marketers, teachers, and general office workers.
Founded in Seoul in 2019, Team Sparta presents various lectures that can lower the psychological barrier to coding under the corporate mission that anyone can make a big difference through coding. Last year, the company introduced Port99, a developer recruitment one-stop solution that connects developers with companies.
