  • An Affordable, Flexible Bootcamp

    At $149/month, Flatiron School’s robust curriculum and community are accessible to more learners than ever before. It’s the best way for committed, independent learners to drive their coding education and career changes. And with our program’s self-paced structure, you don’t have to quit your job to learn to code at a coding bootcamp.

  • A Curated Community of Learners

    While our students span the globe and represent diverse backgrounds, they are united by a passion for learning—and a desire to help others learn. You don’t truly master a subject until you can teach it to others, and our curated community of students take that to heart: they are as invested in other students’ programming journeys as their own.

Why do students love Learn.co?

Why do students love Learn.co?

Hear about Learn.co from the people who know our platform best: Flatiron students.

My favorite part of Learn.co is the community. Even though it’s likely you will never meet other students in your cohort (though there are several meetups in big cities), everyone is extremely supportive of each other and no one feels like a stranger to me.”

---
Shana Moore
Software Engineer at Verve Mobile

The online community is incredible. The platform’s structure allows you to identify the other students who are at the same place in the curriculum as you. You’re therefore able to ask other students questions if you’re stuck. Some of us even started virtual study groups together.”

---
Brett Heenan
Web Developer at Career Foundry

“I loved the online aspect of Learn.co. I had been traveling through South America and across the US and the ability to plug in and work on school anywhere totally rocks. The best part of the program was the focus on using real world tools like Git and Rspec to drive each lesson.”

Is this program right for you?

Is this program right for you?

Both of Flatiron School’s online bootcamps equip you with the technical skills you’ll need to excel as a web developer, but differ when it comes to total monetary investment, instructor access, and career services support. Be sure to ask yourself: how do you learn most effectively and what level of investment makes sense for you?

Instructor-Led Bootcamp

Learn with our online community and the added support of our best-in-class instructors and career coaches.

$1500 /month

“Over the years, I’ve taught thousands of people how to code, and without a doubt, my favorite moment is not when they pass a quiz or we turn to the next chapter—it’s when I see students in dialogue, collaborating with each other. When the feeling of community is palatable. That’s when I know learning is happening.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Finding the best way to invest in your own education is a huge and personal decision—one size rarely fits all. Here you’ll find some frequently asked questions to help you determine what’s right for you.

What’s the difference between Community-Powered Bootcamp and your other programs?

While our programs utilize the same learning platform and proven curriculum, they offer different levels of instructor and career support. Community-Powered Bootcamp additionally doesn’t include a Job Guarantee or financing options.

Can I upgrade from Community-Powered Bootcamp to your Online Web Developer Program?

Yes, Community-Powered Bootcamp students can upgrade at any point to our Online Web Developer Program; the tuition you’ve already paid will be applied toward the total cost of the Online Web Developer Program. To learn more, contact admissions@flatironschool.com.

How does community work online?

To ensure that our thousands of passionate online students never learn in isolation, we are constantly building Community features within our platform:

  • Ask a Question: Confused? Our Ask a Question button is always just a click away. Crowdsource real-time support from the entire student community.
  • Learn Chat: Access every student on Learn.co in our chat lobby. Get advice; work through problems together; make friends with fellow students (we see many online alums stay connected after graduating).
  • Study Groups: Seamlessly form dynamic, in-platform study groups with other students to take on tough concepts together.
  • Nearby friends: You’ll see which other students are “nearby” to you in two ways: in the curriculum (so you can learn together) and geographically (many of our online students form in-person study groups and attend local meetups together).
  • Peer code pairing: Want to work closer with a fellow student? You can collaborate on code in real-time.
  • Group Projects: Online students can optionally build their final Portfolio Projects in groups just like our in-person students.

How will I know if learning online will work for me?

Read our 5 Ways to Know if Learning to Code Online is Right For You.

But the best way to know if learning online will work for you is to try it out. You can begin our free Bootcamp Prep course to get a sense of the Learn.co platform firsthand.

How is your curriculum organized?

Our Community-Powered Bootcamp is designed to be driven at your own pace, whether that be 5 hours per week or 80.

To accomplish this flexibility, our curriculum is made up of stackable building blocks called Lessons, each of which teaches a bite-sized skill in 5-30 minutes. Lessons consist of lectures, readings, videos, quizzes, and interactive coding challenges called Labs, where you put theory into practice.

Lessons come together to form Subtopics, wherein you build 5-10 small apps and solve dozens of Labs.

Finally, Subtopics combine to form major Topics, throughout which you will be taught how to architect larger applications.
