We believe that the “traditional way” of getting better as a developer by doing online courses, reading long books, memorizing and searching the web for advice from faceless developers is broken.

It is creating robots, not thinkers.

Programming jobs offer mostly no training, nor mentorship. Traditional software development courses focus on particular technologies and libraries. None of them addresses the real struggles software developers face every day.

Our mission is to revolutionize this old way and create a new paradigm where software developers learn online from industry leaders, use their own experience as a teacher and get paid well in the process. Without a PhD or getting into a FAANG company, we want to allow ordinary software developers to become extraordinary professionals.

We’re training software developers every day to excel and become insanely good at what they do best, which is writing software.

We want fewer coders and more engineers.

We’re two years into the mission and have helped almost 100 developers move into better-paying positions for better companies all over the world. Some of our students passed the senior level and are on their way to becoming tech leads, architects and CTOs. The best part is we’re just getting started!
