Industry Insight

Our technical curriculum focuses on full stack web development, from design and architecture to testing and deployment. At each stage, our teachers help students learn and apply the tools, concepts, and processes - Git, TDD and automated testing, CI/CD, agile, web security, etc. - desired by high-tech employers.


Open Source Projects

Collaborating on open source projects with real-world applications, students will stretch their existing development and teamwork skills.


Networking and Professional Know-How

It takes more than being a coding whiz to find a job. Our staff guides students to build a network of colleagues, contacts, and mentors from NYC's tech sector. Our career coaches meet with students one-on-one, covering soft skills from resume crafting to behavioral interviewing. Meanwhile, our industry partners offer guest lectures throughout the year, offering into their business practices and giving feedback on students’ technical and professional development.
