Our Story

Picture Of a class

As educators we wondered how coding bootcamps were closing while demand for employees with coding skills continued to rise.  What we learned is that most bootcamps were predicated on a sink or swim model resulting in a lower quality graduate or simply a high dropout rate of those left behind.

We decided to change the bootcamp model.  In fact, we decided to blow it up.  We took an unprecedented step and determined that academic integrity and student outcomes had to drive our curriculum design.  So, we put together the best computer science educators with top practitioners and then layered on a Program Advisory Committee composed of more educators, practitioners and employers to ensure that the programs:

  • Maximize student learning capacity
  • Prepare high-quality practice ready graduates; and
  • Provide industry relevant and in-demand learning outcomes

What happened you ask?

Our first client became the first Institution in the country to have an approved accredited Full-Stack Web Development Certificate program that was eligible for Title IV Student Loans along with a base of students who could matriculate into their arts and design program.
