There is an advantage to learning in-person.
We believe in-person code education within a cohort program, augmented with online tools and community, creates the ideal learning environment. Many employers don’t simply want talented developers, but people who understand how to operate within a team. We’ve baked this experience into our program, creating an environment in which students learn the skills to code within a group. We also believe that relationships are critical to students education and career. In-person training provides the opportunity to spend time with other cohort members, mentors, business leaders, and instructors.
