Many workers feel they have been (or will soon be) left behind by the growing importance of technology in our economy. The rapidly-changing economy, along with the rising cost of a four-year degree, has made traditional education a less feasible and less effective option – especially for career changers.
Meanwhile, the tech industry is booming. There are more than 500,000 open developer positions across the U.S. It’s a training and placement issue that we’re facing.
That’s where we come in. Coding Dojo rapidly trains people from all walks of life to become self-sufficient developers in only 14 weeks. Our innovative curriculum is focused on hands-on learning, not history lessons and philosophical discussions. We prepare our students to make an impact on day 1 with their employers, and get them there at a fraction of the time and cost.

We are in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and the very nature of work is shifting as artificial intelligence and other innovative technologies emerge. While automation will displace or completely replace large amounts of workers, it’ll also create an even higher demand for high-skill jobs, most of which will require some level of coding knowledge.
Technology’s fast pace demands that new skill sets be learned quickly. Sure, a four-year program can establish the foundation for a computer science career, but it doesn’t address in-demand programming languages that rise suddenly and reshape the job landscape.
That’s why we keep our ear to the ground and continually update our curriculum to match the demand for various programming languages. We’re also launching new educational programs for Data Science and other emerging technologies to best prepare our students for the jobs of today and the jobs of the future.
