About the Program

Winter 2017

Seats are limited and instead of lengthy applications, we will be interviewing each potential student up to several times by phone to make sure it's the right fit for everyone.  

Last semester, all of our classes were full and most had a waitlist.  We're still rolling out class details, instructors, and curriculum but it's a great idea to apply early, save your spot on the list, and get insight about programming in development during the phone interview.  

Browse the course list, fill out the inquiry form, and let's have a conversation :)
