$749 for a 12-Week Web- or Mobile-Development Class ($1,500 Value)
Classes meet on Saturdays, and the next round of programs begins on May 4. Courses cover a variety of programming languages and typically conclude with students producing their own unique app. Students must bring their own laptop to class.
At its core, Code Chicago teaches students how to use the basic tools involved in both web and mobile design. Most programs take the form of a 12-week exploration, covering such languages and concepts as Ruby on Rails, Java, HTML, and CSS. The instructors also take lessons a step further by offering courses in less-technical topics such as entrepreneurship and generalized game design. At the end of each full program, students produce their own unique app, which they can then run on the web, Android or iOS devices, or any cleverly modified cassette deck.
