The Iron Yard Opens Enrollment for New 24-Week Coding Course in Houston →

HOUSTON — (Dec. 15, 2016) — The Iron Yard, the country’s largest immersive code school, today announced a new Front-End Engineering software development course that will be offered in a 24-week format on the Houston campus. The course, Front-End Engineering with JavaScript and MVC Frameworks, will begin in February 2017 and enrollment is now open.

The Iron Yard’s new course will be offered in the evenings and on weekends. Classes will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and on Saturdays. This course format is designed for students who want to learn programming and launch a career in technology, but who are unable to quit their jobs to attend an immersive course.

“Houston is one of the top markets in the country for tech jobs and employers are looking to tap into the local talent pool to quickly fill the hundreds of open positions,” said Brian Dorton, campus director for The Iron Yard in Houston. “Over the past two and a half years, we have had the privilege to work with nearly 200 students in Houston and help them launch their careers in tech. By offering our Front-End Engineering course in a 24-week format, we are able to open the door for even more students to begin their journey learning how to code.”

The 24-week course follows the same curriculum as The Iron Yard’s full-time, 12-week immersive class, but is spread out over a longer period of time and held during non-working hours. By the end of the course, students will be able to problem solve programming tasks using JavaScript, and have the ability to create dynamic websites and applications that function like Twitter, Spotify and others. With a working knowledge of modern JavaScript frameworks, graduates will have a deep understanding of what it takes to be a successful front-end programmer in the industry today.

The 24-week Front-End Engineering course will begin in February and prospective students can learn more and apply here:
