UI Engineer @ Sawatch Labs

“Being able to know what the code is and explaining why it works are two very different things. I was able to talk about my code a lot at Flatiron, and that helped when I had technical interviews.”

“Flatiron School put the most effort into proving their methods worked and that was such a vote of confidence for me.”

Experienced engineers. Passionate educators.

Since day one over five years ago, we’ve taken teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect to topics on a profound level. Experience as a developer alone doesn’t necessarily make one an effective teacher — that’s why we’re passionate about finding not only great engineers, but deeply committed, experienced teachers.

Graham Troyer-Joy
Lead Instructor

Graham has 10 years' experience in the software industry, working from the back end to the front, from startups to a big history museum. A self-taught developer, he began teaching at Dev Bootcamp and still loves introducing beginners to the wonders of code.

What the application process looks like

Aptitude for software engineering stems from an innate curiosity about the world and how people interact with it. We don’t admit students, we craft a class: a lawyer, journalist, and pro athlete will approach solutions differently, creating a richer learning environment for everyone involved. All you need is passion and an open mind.

You have questions; we have answers

What makes Flatiron School the right choice for a coding bootcamp?

To date, Flatiron School has helped over 1,000 students land jobs at top companies around the world and celebrates consistently strong job outcomes for its on-campus and online courses. Flatiron School alumni are already working at some of the area’s top companies, along with many currently-enrolled online students who will provide our Austin students with a base of support and guidance as they start their journey into tech careers.

Where is Flatiron School Austin's campus located?

We’re currently building our brand new campus at WeWork’s SXSW Center, which we anticipate opening in Fall 2019. Until then, we’ll be hosting community events at our temporary campus at WeWork Westview.

Why should I attend a coding bootcamp in Austin over a traditional computer science education

With software development roles already leading the labor demand in major cities like Austin, and select university’s computer science degree programs at capacity, Texas finds itself in a rare position to retain its economic strength while maintaining a workforce ready talent pipeline for employers.

High-quality, outcomes-focused “bootcamps” are a strong solution to the problem in question and bridge the growing gap between higher education and workforce readiness. For these reasons, the Flatiron School and We Company have heavily invested in Texas, establishing coding, data science and UX/UI design programs in Houston and Austin.
