The Iron Yard – Austin will launch its first cohort of classes in January.
“I’m excited about attending The Iron Yard, because I know I’ll be immersed in 12 weeks of intense learning,” says Charles Leuker, a student enrolled in the upcoming January Front End Engineering course. “They guide the process so that at the end we will have a kick-butt new skillset that provides a doorway into the innovation economy. I also look forward to learning with like-minded students who are eager to learn programming and put those skills to use.” Before applying for The Iron Yard, Charles was a hospital administrator in the military and ran a lifestyle clothing brand.
Students aren’t the only Austin residents excited about the launch of the school. The Iron Yard has already begun to build an advisory board of companies and officials who are excited about hiring graduates and bolstering an already-robust tech economy by creating (and attracting) high-paying development jobs into the area.
