Detailed Description

Update

We exist to create exceptional value for people and their ideas.

We do this by providing immersive code education for adults and kids, mentorship and capital for startups, coworking spaces and the value-generating relationships that will help them succeed personally and professionally.

Through our broad, deep and growing network of teachers, mentors, programmers, designers, entrepreneurs, investors, employers and collaborative spaces we have developed a thriving community where serendipity happens en-masse.

We are people-centric. We put our students, teams, investors, and supporters first in all of our decision making. Our success is entirely dependent on their success.

Our challenge is immense. The world has huge problems that need to be solved, many of which technology is perfectly suited to address. Companies around the globe are answering this call, but anyone with boots on the ground can feel the acute shortage of people needed to rise to the occasion. That gap is widening right now, and over the next decade the shortfall will effect industries, economies, businesses and individuals as they fight to add value in digital world.

The Iron Yard is a solution at that juncture of supply, demand, business and a broken education system. We are committed to training up the highest-quality developers and startups in the world, both in skill and in character. Our mission is to find people who want to pursue the craft and life-long adventure of technology, teach them the tools of the trade, and then release them into the world with the drive and capability to make a difference. We believe that passionate, talented people who love what they do will create great families, jobs, companies, and solutions to the world’s problems.

We want to accomplish this alongside talented, passionate people who share our vision, love what they do, and want to have a whole lot of fun along the way.
