A Chat with Codify Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Codify Academy is a hybrid in-person and online front end development mentorship program. The Codify program doesn’t just teach you how to code; we have experienced industry mentors who guide your progress until you’re hired with our pool of startups and recruiters. It’s coding on your time.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Our workshop focuses on HTML/CSS. It’s a great way to test the waters and see if you’re ready to jump into coding. All you need is a laptop and your best game face. Hear from recruiters on how to break into the startup world, and connect with past students as they share their coding journeys.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Our mission is to provide an affordable and flexible course that brings both men and women together to learn about web development. Coding isn’t just a techie skill anymore. Web development is a high-demand market, and we want to help people transform their careers and find a job they’ll love.
What do you love most about your job?
It’s a truly great feeling when our students get to see their work come to life. We had a student who was a leasing agent and a single mom. She felt stuck and hated what she was doing. Nine weeks into our program, she landed a job at Apple. That’s the kind of moment we hope to see for all our students.
