What Our Grads are Like
Smart & Creative
Our courses are intense, so we admit diverse applicants who show intellectual stamina, and who have demonstrated the ability think about problems in highly structured ways — from chemical engineers to musicians to math teachers.
You can’t learn real skills with fake tools. Our program requires students to use the same tools and workflows that professional programmers employ.
- Integrated Development Environment – From Day one, students work in real development environments, including a custom version of the Atom text editor and a virtualized terminal.
- Collaboration Tools – Our development environment is fully integrated with GitHub, and all code submissions require GitHub pushes and commits.
- Test Driven Development – Students are required to write code that passes tests in order to move forward.
