A Word from Code Academy

Make it real. Make it right.  Apply to Code Academy.

Hi Refresh!

My name is Mike McGee and I am the Co-Founder of Code Academy, a 12–week Chicago-based program that teaches people how to build web applications.

Learning to build web applications is hard without the necessary structure, support and guidance. Code Academy provides expert instructionmentorship, and an immersive environment. You'll learn more in 12 weeks than most do in a year by attending Code Academy.

Code Academy is offering two 12–week programs: one for web development in Ruby on Rails and one for user experience design

We want the world to be a place where anyone can develop the skills to do whatever they want, to take what's in their head and make it real, and have fun while doing it. We are not only focused on just creating more developers to get picked up by start-ups and tech companies, we want to create the next wave of builders. 

If you like to learn more about the programs we offer, check out our programs page –

David Heienmeier Hansson (DHH) - the creator of Ruby on Rails and partner at 37signals stopped by our class on the first day, you can watch his interview here –

And if you would like to learn more about our students, check out their interviews on the home page and read their quotes on our Culture page. 

Apply today.


If you want to learn more about Code Academy or have any questions about the application process, please email  [address removed] or [address removed].
