Microsoft to Train Costa Rican Inmates as Web Developers

SAN JOSE – Inmates at a Costa Rican prison will receive training in Web page development under an agreement between the Justice and Peace Ministry and Microsoft.

The goal is to provide opportunities for inmates to acquire skills in hopes of easing their reintegration after they leave prison, Costa Rican authorities said.

The accord sets the basis for a pilot program involving 15 inmates at Gerardo Rodriguez prison in the central province of Heredia.

The participants, who range in age from 22 to 54, were selected based on good behavior and educational level.

Costa Rica’s penal system has not been doing a very good job of preparing convicts to rejoin society, Justice and Peace Minister Cecilia Sanchez said.

Inmates who successfully complete the Microsoft course will be eligible for certification in 70-480 Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3.

“We are committed to the development of the communities where we operate,” Microsoft Costa Rica director Carlos Flores said.
