Want a programming career? Look no further.

We’ve been teaching people software development and helping them launch programming careers since 2013. In the years since, we’ve learned so much from the people who’ve trusted us with their careers and lives. As our graduates have gone into their second and third web development jobs after graduating from The Iron Yard, many of them have kept in touch with us, and some even continue to visit campus to share their expertise with our current students.

Throughout the years, we’ve modified our web development courses based on feedback from graduates, employers, and our Advisory Board members. The tech industry changes almost daily, and our students need access to the latest programming tools and strategies if they are going to remain competitive when they graduates from our immersive programs.

That’s why we’ve recently re-tooled our courses and have rolled out a revamped version of our Web Development Career Path. Read More

We could have talked for hours about why initiatives like this are so important and why collaboration is key when it comes to making real change in the industry.

There are a handful of code schools in the city, so Course Report recently checked in with our Campus Director, Karly Borden, to find out more about why The Iron Yard Austin stands out from the Texas-sized crowd.

Here’s an excerpt from Karly’s interview: Read More
