Murray – Unspam Technologies donated 150 domain names and hosting to local school website development programs. Seven high schools along the Wasatch Front, along with the Jordan Applied Technology Center, are the recipients of these domains.
“Typically, web development students do not have the opportunity to learn how to increase traffic and rankings to their site in the classroom,” said Melinda Mansouri, instructor at Jordan Applied Technology Center. “Being able to utilize real domains will give our students the opportunity to gain real-life experience when it comes to building websites and directing traffic. By expanding our curriculum to working with live domains, we will be giving our students a major advantage when it comes to entering the workforce.”
Unspam CEO Eric Langheinrich said he wants to encourage more technology training in schools. “We donated these domains in order to give web development students an experience that they normally would not receive in current programs. It is vital that we give students the skills and training needed to fill the growing expanse of jobs in the tech industry,” he said.
“We can secure Utah’s competitive edge in the global marketplace by committing to STEM initiatives and producing high school graduates with basic coding and website development knowledge,” Langheinrich added.
