Join a passionate community of aspiring programmers
Effective learning comes not from consuming educational content, but from connecting with other learners. Community-Powered Bootcamp unlocks our proven full-stack curriculum for those still exploring career paths, skilling up for a current job, or unable to commit as much time to the program – and gives them the tools to learn together.
At $149/month, a Flatiron education is accessible to more students than ever. It’s the best way for committed learners to drive their own coding education and career changes.
Take on the same professional-grade programming curriculum used in our other courses to give over 1,000 Flatiron grads the skills to become software engineers.
Our inclusive, curated community of students support each other on our immersive online platform and always find what to love in what they learn.
You don’t have to quit your job to learn to code. Learn full-time, part-time, or in between – our self-paced program provides the flexibility to fit your life.
Learn to think – and build – like a software engineer
Being a software engineer takes more than knowing how to code. Community-Powered Bootcamp students learn to think, and build, like software engineers by undertaking over 800 hours of rigorous coursework, test-driven labs, and portfolio projects. And with over 3,000 updates in the last year alone, our living curriculum is the most up-to-date in the industry.
We designed our comprehensive Full-Stack Web Development Curriculum to give students the necessary expertise in both back-end and front-end programming technologies to become full-stack developers.
Section 1: HTML & CSS, OOP, Ruby, SQL, ORM
After diving into HTML5 & CSS, students get comfortable with object-oriented programming, learning to read websites with Ruby and save data to a database with SQL and Object Relational Mappers.
Sections 2 & 3: Sinatra, Rails
Students learn two key Ruby frameworks, first mastering the fundamentals of web programming with Sinatra before experiencing how quickly they can build incredible apps with Rails.
Section 5: React, Redux, JSON
Students learn to build productive, scalable front-ends with React and Redux, creating slick, functional, reactive code with Redux as a state manager and Rails as the back-end JSON API.
Start building your portfolio
Our students don’t just ship code; they become developers. You'll build Portfolio Projects to demonstrate your technical skills and creativity (previous projects have won prestigious tech awards, become MVPs for startups, and been presented at the White House) and get immersed in the technical community.
GitHub is the modern software engineer’s resume. You'll push every line of code you write at Flatiron School to GitHub through our proprietary platform, Learn.co, giving you an extensive profile to show employers and fellow engineers.
All Flatiron students maintain technical blogs to show they can not only write code, but also communicate how that code works — an essential skill for software engineers. (Explore our community’s blog posts in Learn Magazine.)
Learn to code through collaboration
Ask a Question
Confused? Our Ask a Question button allows students to crowdsource support from the entire student community.
Students can schedule study groups and collaborate together in real-time to tackle tough concepts.
Students can access every member of our student community to get advice and work on lessons together via our integration with Slack, a communication and collaboration tool widely adopted in the tech industry.
You’ll meet students working on lessons around you and build a network of friends – your greatest resource when you get stuck. We see students stay connected throughout and well beyond the program.
Learn.co, the proprietary learning platform that powers Flatiron’s free coding bootcamp, is the world’s most sophisticated product for learning code. Students on Learn.co interact with a worldwide community of students and instructors and harness real developer tools to truly learn by doing.
Learning is most effective when it’s social. Learn.co makes online learning a more dynamic, human experience with tools to connect, code, and collaborate with fellow students and instructors in real-time – including video study groups, peer-pairing, and the ability to “friend” others in the program.
You can’t learn real skills without real tools. Learn.co utilizes the same tools and workflows that professional developers employ on the job, including a real development environment, a Git-based workflow, and the ubiquitous practice of Test-Driven Development.
We ensure that students always get the most relevant technical skills by embracing an open-source curriculum – a living course of study featuring thousands of updates a year to reflect industry trends and student feedback.
