After graduation, our students have gone on to contribute to some of the most exciting and impactful companies in Denver.
“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.”

What the application process looks like
Aptitude for software engineering is built 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 that you need to bring is your 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.
