We’re All In This Together

We refer to each of our classes as a cohort. Atlanta Ruby on Rails student Nate Winn has some excellent thoughts on what that word means.

“cohort” is the only fitting term for my fellow coders at The Iron Yard. Over the past 8 weeks, we have done far more than sit in the same classroom. We have become family pressing toward a common goal, striving to reach an elusive prize—not individually racing to be the first to cross the finish line, but rather choosing to endure the marathon together. The Iron Yard is by far the most emotionally draining challenge of my life. Finishing would not be possible without having fellow comrades facing the same battle.
