All our courses include coverage of blockchain technology which students have the option to dive deep in by signing up for our blockchain program.  By the end of the summer you will have developed projects for your chosen industry and created a portfolio to showcase to potential employers.

We work with companies to develop and adapt our curriculum to teach skill-sets that match real hiring needs. Leading business executives, industry professionals, and those passionate about education and software development help us craft our courses. Students may do real project work for companies while they are enrolled. Career services and placement is emphasize in our program.

Python + Other In-Demand Languages

Python_logo-256  Our coding curriculum teaches Python in addition to JavaScript and front-end languages including HTML, HTML5, CSS/CSS3.  We chose to emphasize Python as it’s great for processing multiple levels of data.  It’s used heavily in data science, finance, medicine, media and other industries.  It’s also one of the highest paid coding language for recent bootcamp grads.  Our New York City headquarters, in fact, was the first to launch a full-time Python program in its metro area.

We offered career support after graduation so that you can enhance your career for life.


Industry Focus

  • FinTech

    We were the first to offer FinTech coding education.

    Our Full Time FinTech Python Full-stack classes are offered in New York and India

    FinTech is a rapidly growing industry:

    • 2015 global FinTech investment grew by 75% y-o-y to $22.2 billion
    • In 2016 financial technology companies raised a total of approximately $36 billion over 1500 funding deals worldwide**
    • Average salary for a Fintech software engineer? $100,000+*

    Areas of FinTech Include:  Peer to Peer Lending, Cryptocurrency,  InsureTech, Mobile Payments, Analytics, Developer APIs, Cybersecurity, Cloud Security

    The divide between roles in financial services and engineering has dwindled, putting individuals who could not keep up with technology out of work. In response to this transition of talent, we train individuals how to program for the financial domain. Students graduate with the ability to develop financial applications.

    Companies that use Python include

    Did you know that Guido van Rossum, the founder of Python named the programming language after Monty Python?

  • Blockchain

    Code on the blockchain

    Originally known as the technology behind Bitcoin,  blockchain has wide ranging applications outside cryptocurrency and the finance industry.  These include decentralized voting, data compilation, supply chain management and even prevention of piracy. The blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of records called blocks secured from tampering and revision.  Each block contains a time stamp from a recent block.
