Coding Academy Mission

Our coding academy helps people learn how to code and get lucrative jobs in tech with a focus on inclusion and diversity in technology.

Our Company

We Can Code IT teaches people how to code, with a special emphasis on inclusion and diversity in tech.

We bridge the gap for those underrepresented in tech, the same groups susceptible to low to moderate incomes, through education in software development and web development.

Diversity in Coding Matters

Three of the top five most in-demand occupations are in computer programming.

Employers can’t find enough programmers. On top of that, they crave diversity in their IT departments. Great companies know that multiple perspectives help their teams perform better, which increases their bottom line, yet less than 18% of IT teams are comprised of women, African American, and Hispanic populations.

Our coding bootcamp makes a difference in many lives and businesses. A diverse group of experienced programmers and teachers, we provide the training and career support that our students need. We help employers find talented programmers that have the skills they seek. We help students turn their lives around and gain careers in the lucrative IT industry.

Coding Bootcamp Educational Philosophy

Unlike a standard school or other coding bootcamp, we take pride in delivering engaging, personalized, and immersive experiences to bring your strengths to the forefront. Our innovative approach to technology education has given our students the confidence they need to know they can succeed as software developers, web developers, programmers, and analysts. We believe your motivation to learn is more valuable than your previous knowledge. It’s our job to help you learn, your job to give it your all, and given our mutual goal of your success, it’s our combined job to bring out the best software professional in you.

We call ourselves a coding bootcamp, but we do much more than just teach you how to code; we help you become a skilled and creative software developer ready to start a new career and life. We empower you. We open your mind through creative computing. We build on your strengths, and focus on a community, hands-on approach. We help you get the education you need to succeed, but we don’t make you sit through boring lectures and videos to get there. We engage you with your interests in mind and allow you to find your path as an innovative software professional. We make programming fun!

“After the We Can Code IT on-site training at University Hospitals, we embraced Agile software development methodology with tremendous success. On a project that was not going well, we were able to develop 1-week iterations where we did a mini-planning session on Monday, committed to stories for the week and then completely tested them by the end of the week. Our teams have really enjoyed moving to a more structured Agile environment with much more collaboration.”

It takes 6 to 9 months to bring a new developer up to speed. In IT, recruiting top talent is super competitive. So it makes sense to train your internal talent pool, right? A great idea, but most companies find cross-training employees is time-consuming and demands training expertise they don’t always have.  We can help you with this process by applying our assessment tools.  These will help you find out which employees would be best for cross-training as well as which canidates are most adept to join your company.

When growth or turnover hits your IT team, research shows it costs a business about 20% of an employee’s salary to hire and train new talent. If a developer is paid in the neighborhood of $80–$120K —the hiring and training process costs your business up to $24K.*
