Your day at Flatiron School
Every day is unique at Flatiron School, and our curriculum team and instructors develop new lessons that build off past experiences. But structured, consistent learning is also crucial to student success. Below is a sample of what you can expect on a daily basis in a Flatiron classroom.
Your day begins with an open discussion when you can ask questions, review new skills, and program materials from the day before to ensure you’re up to speed.
Learn key concepts from your expert instructor through interactive exercises and collaborative discussion.
Work together with a partner to build your strategic and tactical coding skills and learn from one another.
Labs & Mini Projects
Self-led labs let you explore your own coding projects based on the material from lecture. Learn from professors, then immediately put what you learned into action. Making things is the best way to learn things.
You’ll end the day reviewing concepts and strategizing the next steps in your personal projects.
Where our grads get hired
Meet your instructors
Since day one, we’ve taken teaching seriously. We’ve learned that 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 and experienced teachers.
Graham has spent 10 years in the software industry, working from the backend to the front, everywhere from small startups to a big natural history museum. A self-taught developer, he started out teaching at Dev Bootcamp and still loves introducing beginners to the wonders and curiosities of code.
A longtime developer, Rishi has worked all over the stack. At his previous company, Rishi introduced and maintained a summer internship program, and he brings that experience to Flatiron.
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.
Submit your application. Share a bit about yourself and what’s driving you to start a career in code.
Meet a member of our Admissions team about elaborate on your interests and ambitions. There is no technical prep needed for this step.
The technical review assesses your basic grip of coding and how it interacts with us in our daily lives. Showing proactiveness by completing steps on Learn, our learning platform, definitely helps.
Receive your acceptance decision from Admissions. This usually happens within a couple of days.
If and when you are accepted, the next step is course pre-work so that you’re ready for day one.
