"Take one class, take the other, take both. In just 10 weeks you'll have actual sites you've built using HTML/CSS, have insight into the user interaction behind it, and an opportunity to demo your applications in front of Chicago's elite entrepreneurs on Demo Day." - http://www.builtinchicago.org/blog/introducing-code-academy-night-classes

The idea guy is dead. We replaced him with the MVP hacker.
For anyone with a technical idea, eg. web app, mobile app, if you don’t learn to build it yourself to some degree, you’re losing out on a huge opportunity. - http://blog.codeacademy.org/post/17209472611/be-your-own-outsource

In partnership with Nick Stocking and his revolutionary freelance community DesignCloud, Code Academy now has a second place to call home. Community has been engrained in our culture from day one and today as we continue to grow our family, it’s humble knowing we’ve already begun to outgrow even our own expectations. - http://blog.codeacademy.org/post/17038560936/designcloud-meet-codecloud

"It’s crazy to think a single post on Built in Chicago will seat you next to the likes of Troy Henikoff, Kevin Willer, Matt McCall, Matt Moog, and countless other highly invested business leaders and venture capitalists. But it’s not just them, it’s the rest the community that makes Built in Chicago such a success. It’s the pioneering spirit, the welcoming attitudes, and the insights from countless others. Simply put, Built in Chicago is the personification of the entrepreneurial spirit in Chicago, and we cannot thank them enough." http://blog.codeacademy.org/post/16889713328/built-in-chicago-our-citys-largest-investor

New blog post! WTF is MVP? - http://bit.ly/wGu1Z8

"We have a motto here, make it work, then make it right. MVP is making it work. Get it functional, get it live, and then work to build an audience around it, don’t worry about scalability until it’s an actual problem."
