Ruby

Ruby is a general-purpose programming language. The brainchild of many other brilliant languages, it's an intuitive route into programming. Ruby is used in web applications through frameworks like Rails and Sinatra.

JavaScript

JavaScript is rapidly becoming the biggest programming language in the world. You can use it anywhere: to animate text on a page, to run a high-throughput server, and to enable your coffee machine to work over WiFi.

HTML

HTML is the building material of the web. We'll guide you towards building beautiful, structured webpages and altering content dynamically, both on the server and client-side.

git

git is the world's most popular way to manage, share, and distribute code. We embed best GitHub practices from the get-go, which perfectly suits our focus on Pair Programming - and our Hiring Partners.

Software Craftsmanship

Software Craftsmanship is a movement to improve the quality of developers and the software they write. We train you to really care about your code, and how to develop the professional skills required of a modern engineer.
