Louisville’s innovative efforts to provide coding training to get more people qualified for higher-paying technology jobs was in the national spotlight during President Barack Obama’s visit Thursday to Louisville technology firm, Indatus.

Indatus is one of more than 20 local tech companies benefitting from Code Louisville, a program launched by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and community, business and education leaders to increase the number of qualified residents for higher-paying tech jobs. The program, which offers free training to prepare people for computer software coding jobs, was cited as a model by the White House when the President’s TechHire initiative was unveiled last month.
