Begin your career as a software engineer in Austin
At the heart of the Texas tech scene, Austin offers the perfect place to launch your future as a developer. Home to both tech giants – like Apple and Texas Instruments – and a community of growing startups, Austin needs highly trained software engineers. At Flatiron School, quality learning comes at the intersection of diligence and curriculum. With that vision in mind, Flatiron School has brought together passionate, experienced instructors and ambitious students to achieve incredible outcomes since 2012. And now we’re bringing that vision to you with our Austin coding school.
When you enroll in our Austin coding bootcamp, you start working 1:1 with a Career Coach before you graduate. In doing so, we set you up for success in landing that first job as a developer. When coupled with our industry-leading curriculum, we also set you and your employer up for long-term success.
We’re working to expand access to computer science education to more students. In addition to our campuses across the globe, we’re proud to partner with traditional institutions like Yale to increase the reach of our programs to students from different backgrounds and areas of study.
Since October 2017, we’ve partnered with WeWork to increase access to our software engineering courses. In our Austin coding school, Flatiron School and WeWork bring together our on-campus and online students in spaces shared with local business leaders, entrepreneurs, and creators that come to work every day to do what they love and change the world.

You’ll end the day reviewing concepts and strategizing the next steps in your personal projects.
Flatiron School Grads in Austin
In Austin, our students have already impacted their communities in powerful ways and made contributions at a number of local companies.
“Flatiron School not only opened the doorway to a life and career in tech, it lead me to Denver, where I’m working at Vertafore as a software engineer today.”
“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 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.
Coming from a background in education, Eric Kim found his love for programming and problem-solving while studying mathematics. He enjoys working with people and bringing out their best potential. When he’s not teaching, Eric enjoys a good brain-teaser, as well as a good hike.
A bootcamp grad, Tim fell in love with programming – and volunteering to teach people code. He has worked freelance and in startups developing on the front and back end.

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.
Submit your application. Share a bit about yourself and what’s driving you to start a career.
Speak with an Admissions representative in a non-technical interview. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. Nothing technical — just a friendly conversation.
The technical review assesses your basic grip of coding and how it interacts with us in our daily lives. Demonstrate interest by completing steps on Learn.co, our learning platform.
Receive your acceptance decision from Admissions. This usually happens within 4 business days.
If accepted, you'll begin course pre-work to prepare for the first day of class.
Start your application for one of our immersive bootcamps and change your life today.
