Now enrolling for our April 29th cohort!

Cohort XV Graduates

October, 18th 2019

We want to say a special thank you to PROforma for their continued support. PROforma has sent its employees through our program and provided mock interview opportunities for our students. Proforma continues to be involved in helping us not only to continue our program but improve it.

After their 12-week journey to becoming Full-Stack Developers, our students have grown their technical skills. These students have gone from little to no experience to learning HTML/CSS, JavaScript, React and then diving into a back-end technology stack to round out their full-stack understanding. We are proud to present to you our graduating students from Cohort XV.
