Stories from the Field – July 2017

We recently chatted with a few current students and grads from our Charlotte campus about their time at The Iron Yard and how code school equipped and challenged them and what they are doing now. 

Here is a taste of what they had to say. 

Abry

“I enrolled at The Iron Yard to broaden my skill set as a whole and make myself more attractive to the Charlotte market.”

“You’re really learning a whole new way to think.”

Jake

“Coding is probably one of the only things you can do that you’re making something everyday that hasn’t existed before.”

“The crash courses held by The Iron Yard are a phenomenal way to just kind of get your feet wet and see if it’s something that you want to do.”

“I think the biggest advice to people planning on coming to The Iron Yard is to plan on putting 150 percent in.”

Kelsey

“I knew coding was something that I really wanted to learn how to do. I stuck with it. Compared to college, it’s definitely more rigorous, it takes up a lot of time and effort, but it was worth it. “

“Our instructor is an experienced programmer. He’s worked in the field for a long time. Just having those resources available and working with people, being able to bounce ideas off my classmates, it was really invaluable.”

“The Iron Yard requires a lot of effort. It takes up a lot of time, but if you put in the effort, it makes a big difference.”
