Inside the Joy of Coding Academy, you get to choose -- whether it's front-end, back-end, mobile, or full stack. You will master the skills and technologies that will serve your ideal career through our exclusive guaranteed internship experience.
Start in python
Learn to master the 7 basics of problems solving with python, the world's most accessible language that's closest to English, and get ready to fly through the technical interview.
Once you've mastered the basics, you will build on your strong foundation using the latest web & mobile technologies on your guaranteed internship. Learn and gain experience on your resume at the same time.
While mastering the fundamentals is the first step, six figure software developers need to know how to build software at scale on a team. Git is the industry standard tool teams use to coordinate development.
At the Joy of Coding Academy, we focus on building the skills and mastering the techniques that will not only land you your first coding job, but help you thrive in a 20 year career. We focus on teaching you how to learn smarter, not harder, so you are always ready to pick up the latest technology of the moment and put it into practice.
If you complete the program within 12 months & aren’t landing interviews leading to job offers within 6 months, Dr. Emily will personally work with you every week until you land that dream 6 figure job. It’s not a matter of if... it’s a matter of when.
Before starting the Joy of Coding Academy, I did not feel prepared for the job. I finished a Masters in Interactive Technologies Programming, but I didn’t have experience in the field...
After joining the Joy of Coding Academy, I now feel confident that I can break situations down into smaller tasks to get results, and I feel that the impostor syndrome isn't there all the time like it used to be.
Now, I feel very comfortable using Git to work with others, I have a solid working knowledge of React, and I feel confident enough with programming in general to learn new languages on the side like TypeScript, Go, and Rust.
I always felt supported by Dr. Hill. She believes in the potential of all of her students, and really invests in building our confidence as young technologists. She was always willing to share her personal experiences, candid advice, and contacts.
The real projects we completed truly prepared me for programming at the enterprise level.
