What We’re All About In our industry the tools and technologies change constantly.

We teach our students how to think like an experienced programmer so they are successful in crafting elegant solutions to any application requirement regardless of the current state of tools and technology. We believe in learning by doing and working on real-world projects that build skill and a portfolio of work for our students to show to prospective employers. We promote open source tools and technologies and instill in our students a sense of appreciation for all the contributions that have been made to these projects with a desire to contribute where they can. We are committed to providing the highest quality learning environment and outcomes in the industry. We keep our class sizes considerably smaller than the average, provide our students access to a wide range of relevant evening workshop and promote peer-to-peer support and collaboration among students with shared housing and social events.
