Governor launches coding program for female inmates

INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Eric Holcomb is launching a program that will teach inmates at the Indiana Women’s Prison computer coding skills.

The program unveiled Thursday will provide software engineering training that may lead to jobs in the technology sector for the female offenders. Those in the program are expected to be prepared for tech employment upon release, including web development and design.

Indiana is the second state that has such a program, which starts Monday.
