Sergio M.
Software Engineer @ Vertafore

“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.”

Remmy C.
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.”

Lucas M.
Software Engineer @ Ibotta

“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.

Eric Kim
Software Engineering Instructor

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.

Tim Campbell
Lead Instructor

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 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.

Step 1 → Apply

Submit your application. Share a bit about yourself and what’s driving you to start a career.

Step 2 → Admissions interview

Speak with an Admissions Advisor 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.

Step 3 → Technical review

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.

What is a Technical Review?

Step 4 → Admissions decision

Receive your acceptance decision from Admissions. This usually happens within 4 business days.

Step 5 → Prework

If accepted, you'll begin course pre-work to prepare for the first day of class.

Frequently asked questions

How can I apply to scholarships for the in-person program

All scholarships to our in-person program are granted after a student is admitted. Scholarships are granted on a need and merit basis, with preference given to underrepresented minorities in tech, including women and military veterans. If you feel that describes you, you can share your story with us on the scholarship application once you are admitted into the program.

How do I prepare for the technical interview?

Our technical interview is meant to assess your current understanding and aptitude for learning code. If you are selected for a technical interview, we will ask you to start working through a brief coding challenge and follow that with a technical discussion with an instructor based on the code you wrote. The best way to prepare for this interview is to complete one of our free Intro tracks: Intro to Ruby or Intro to Javascript or Bootcamp Prep. The material covered in the technical interview is similar to the material covered in these tracks.

I was admitted to a cohort but can’t start until next month, can I defer my enrollment?

We recognize that sometimes “life happens” and that students who have been admitted to one class may need to defer and start with us at a later date. Students may defer up to three start dates beyond the class to which they are admitted. If you must defer farther out than that, we may ask you to repeat some or all of the admissions process to ensure your readiness for the later start date. Students may defer only once without reapplying.

I wasn’t admitted the first time around, can I re-apply?

Flatiron School’s application process is rigorous, and sometimes students who don’t get accepted the first time around are able to ‘study up’ and get accepted the second time around. As such, students are invited to re-apply after three months have passed from initial decision. Students are permitted a total of three application attempts, so re-applicants are advised to use that time building their skills (both professional and technical) and to submit a second application that is materially different from the first one, showcasing your hard work and improvements over that time.
