Epicodus is a vocational school for aspiring programmers. Depending on what track you take, you can learn everything you need to know to get a job as a web developer or build your startup's app.

At Epicodus, you'll learn how to build web applications from top to bottom with modern technologies and practices. More importantly than any particular skill, though, you'll learn how to think like a programmer, write good code, and pick up new languages and technologies in this fast-changing industry.

We're excited to be expanding to Seattle in June. Stop by the digital drop-in to learn more about our programs and ask Epicodus staff lots of questions.

New blog post: Founder Michael shares his views on what makes someone a good programmer. 

http://www.epicodus.com/blog/aptitude-attitude-and-experience
By Michael Kaiser-Nyman, Epicodus President Over the years of teaching people to code, I often get asked what kinds of people make good programmers, or how to know if somebody's cut out to be a developer. I've certainly noticed that some people have natural talent for coding and can pick it up remarkably quickly, but I'm also convinced that it's much less important than many people think. There are three things I've seen that determ...

New blog post: Founder and president Michael, shares his thoughts on the impact of unconscious bias.

http://www.epicodus.com/blog/accidentally-sexist
By Michael Kaiser-Nyman, Epicodus President I was chatting with a friend of a friend the other day who mentioned she was thinking about taking Epicodus. Out loud, I said "Oh, that's awesome! I really hope you do it." But in my head, I was worried. What if she wasn't good at programming? What if she didn't do well in the class? What if she didn't get a job afterwards? I noticed these thoughts bouncing around and then stopped for a mo...

As our Intro students are gearing up to decide what language to learn next, our founder Michael Kaiser-Nyman sat down to share his thoughts on how to choose a programming language.

http://www.epicodus.com/blog/what-programming-language-should-i-learn
By Michael Kaiser-Nyman Now that Epicodus offers so many different courses, we often get students unsure of what to take after they finish Introduction to Programming. If you're an Epicodus student or anybody wondering which language to learn, the first thing you need to decide is if you want to focus more on front-end or back-end development. Front-end developers spend their time making things look and work well, obsessing over layo...

One of our newest graduates sat down to write about what he learned at code school. Check out his reflections on the Epicodus blog today.

http://www.epicodus.com/blog/what-i-learned-from-code-school
By Mike Bunker Having no idea what I was doing I decided to enroll in a Code School this summer to learn the basics of programming and web development. I decided to attend Epicodus, a 4-month full time coding “boot camp” teaching Ruby/Rails and JavaScript along with a few different frameworks. I was a Political Science Major in college, and have no experience in the tech industry before starting at Epicodus (as you will see from that...

Today on the blog, we're talking about the benefits of pair programming, and why we have our students adopt the practice in the classroom.

http://www.epicodus.com/blog/why-we-pair-progam-at-epicodus
One of the most unique aspects of how the Epicodus classroom works is that our students practice pair programming, where two people use the same computer at the same time. One person drives, controlling the keyboard and mouse, and the other person watches and talks. Typically, students are pairing with a different partner each day. Why is this practice beneficial? We’ve found that there are several reasons why pair programming can ...
