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.
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 engineers, 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 engineer 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.
