What is this Iron Yard Academy, you ask?
The Academy is a collection of intensive, in-person programming and design courses, built to take students from zero to hero in a short amount of time. When they complete the program, we’ll help place them in a job. Other schools like this exist, but not in the Southeast.
What subjects will you teach?
We’ve opened applications for our three-month Front End Engineering class, and will launch a UX/UI course later this spring. We hope to add iOS and Rails courses later in the year.
What kind of instructors are teaching these classes?
Also, we can’t say who just quite yet, but we recently hired a genius-level instructor for our upcoming UX/UI class. More news on that soon.
What will students be ready for after taking the courses?
Here’s what we’ll prepare students for in the Front End class:
- Join a startup and get a solid prototype off the ground quickly and efficiently
- Build digital products for web development shop, agency, etc.
- Build non-trivial, fast, efficient, production-quality apps
- Build gorgeous websites
- Most importantly, learn how to learn
You won’t know absolutely everything there is to know, but we will ensure that you know how to learn it if you need to.
Ok, fancy pants, how much will this cost?
$9,750, including housing and a MacBook air that you get to keep. For real.
