Applications due August 9, 2019


Our curriculum partner Covalence was founded by three former Microsoft Engineers. Their custom built curriculum teaches you what you need to know to land a job developing software. Their mission is to teach you cutting edge technologies but to not bog you down with stuff you don't need to know when you're first learning to code. A lot of the basics of programming are learning the syntax, structure, and best practices. But great developers are resourceful problem solvers at heart, and this curriculum, taught by industry experts, is carefully designed to not only teach you the rules of coding but how you can solve real world problems with it. To put it simply, Covalence helps you learn how to think like a software engineer, not just talk like one.

I am Bham is a 14-week coding bootcamp designed to teach Full Stack Software Engineering through short-term, fast-track, intensive training.
