Meet your instructors

Great teachers inspire us to connect to topics on a profound level and to practice lifelong learning . Experience as a developer alone doesn’t necessarily make an effective teacher — that’s why we’re passionate about finding not only great engineers, but deeply committed and experienced teachers.

Joe Childs
Lead Instructor

A bootcamp graduate himself, Joe made a career change to software development and consulted as a DevOps engineer and software tester. Realising his favourite part of being an engineer was helping other people understand and fix their bugs, he returned to his former bootcamp to help teach others how to code before moving on to do the same at Flatiron School.

Daniel Kaczmarczyk
Lead Instructor

Having coded since his teenage years, then running a music school, Daniel brings the joy of creativity, teaching, and programming to our students. He has experience in software development and data engineering and worked for a few tech startups before joining Flatiron School.

Sam Barker
Lead Instructor

Sam studied game design and has been coding for 10 years. He worked in the online gambling industry making browser games for 5 years. As part of Flatiron School London’s instructor team, he’s passionate about helping curious, ambitious students throughout the city find their calling and their future.

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.

Still unsure whether our coding bootcamp is right for you? Chat with our friendly Admissions team to get all your questions answered before you apply.

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 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.

What do we look for in a Flatiron School student?

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

For more information, contact our Admissions team at admissions@flatironschool.com.

Where can I attend Flatiron School's Software Engineering immersive course?

Students can attend Flatiron School’s flagship software engineering program at any of our campuses as well as online. For more information about available courses, visit our Courses page.

Is there a deadline to apply?

Admissions are conducted on a rolling basis, so we continue to accept new applications until the course is filled. So, no deadline to apply — but the sooner you get your application in, the faster we can prioritize it. Our classes fill up well in advance of the start date, so we recommend applying at least 8 weeks before your desired start date. This allows 2–3 weeks for the application process and accounts for time to complete the required 100 hours of pre-work.

How do I know I’m learning? What happens if I fall behind?

Our modular structure means you’ll know that you’re gaining the competencies to become a software engineer — and it gives us the opportunity to see who might need more mentorship to get there. Because our curriculum builds cumulatively, each module concludes with a 1:1 instructor review to check in on your progress and make sure you’ve gained a strong understanding before we add more concepts on top of it in the next module. If you don’t pass the review, you’ll receive additional direct mentorship to solidify your understanding and take it again. If you don’t pass this time, you’ll have the opportunity to repeat the full three-week module at no extra cost. You can repeat one module once; if you don’t pass the second time through, you will be asked to leave the program for a partial refund. Partial refunds are determined based on the number of weeks in the program. For more information contact admissions@flatironschool.com.

What is the schedule like?

Students are on campus for 15 weeks Monday – Friday from 9am – 6pm. Our campus is open 24/7 to students, and we often find them working hard at all hours to finish homework and projects. Students do find it extremely difficult to have any other commitments during their studies such as a part-time job.

Do I need my own computer?

You will need to ensure you have a suitable computer to study on this course. See specific computer requirements here. You can also ask our Admissions team about your best options for buying or renting.
