What we're about

The goal of this group is to utilize App Academy's online curriculum to mimic a bootcamp environment and support individuals looking to break into the programming field. It will be lead my myself, a current student and previous NASA material engineer looking to break into the programming field, and Kiran Vajapey, an experience programmer working at Figure Eight in SF.

The curriculum we will be using is from the #1 ranked coding school in the United States, App Academy. They recently launched a new online platform, App Academy Open, making their Full-Stack Web Development course available to everyone worldwide. The course offers an identical curriculum to App Academy's in-person training program, which has placed thousands of people in software development jobs at a median salary of $105,000.
