Who we are
Epicodus is a school where people from all walks of life come together to learn web and mobile development. We train our students in high-demand programming skills, and then help them find work with software companies. Here are our core values:
Our students are like family and we care deeply about them at every step.
We strive to create an environment where people of all races, genders, income, age, and other groups belong.
We have a high completion rate and high job search success, and work to continue improving our outcomes.
We default to transparency and never do anything to mislead our students.
A different kind of classroom
At Epicodus, we use a completely "flipped" classroom. There are no lectures in class - instead, you'll learn new content from videos and text you review as homework. All class time is spent actually coding, with the support of your peers and teachers.
Most of the classroom time is spent "pair programming", with two students sharing one computer, keyboard, and mouse. Working closely with your pair, you'll share knowledge, catch each other's mistakes, and help each other stay focused.
At the end of every course, you'll spend a week working on a group project with a team, preparing you for the kind of collaboration you'll find in the real world.
Extensive career services
Epicodus students have gone on to work at companies as small as 3-person startups, as big as a Fortune 100 company, and everything in between. In addition to the training we provide on programming skills, throughout our full-time courses, we'll help get you prepared to look for work.
Our career services start with thoroughly reviewing your application materials, including resume, cover letters, and your online presence. From there, we'll do non-technical and technical mock interviews.
After completing this prep work, we'll place you in an internship with a tech company so that you can gain on-the-job experience. We'll also organize a Demo Day where you can show off a project you've built to local employers.
After you graduate, we'll continue to support you by sending you job leads and checking in with you weekly until you find work.
Our graduates have gone on to work for such companies as:
