4week programming course guarantees 60k job or your money back

first_imgOver the past couple of years the number of online teaching websites that have appeared has been quite staggering. As well as the Khan Academy, we’ve got such services as Udemy, Coursera, Udacity, and a number of universities sharing lecture videos, course notes, and even accreditation.Code Fellows is another such teaching website focused on programming, but it comes with a rather enticing guarantee for anyone accepted on to its Ruby on Rails course: a $60k job at the end of it, or your tuition fees refunded.The course runs for four weeks and requires your attendance between the hours of 9am and 4pm. Half the day is instruction, while the other half is spent in mentoring and co-working. There’s the promise of 1:1 instruction, hands-on projects, and introductions to potential employers. And it all takes place in South Lake Union, Seattle starting March 4. The tuition fee is $5,000, or $4,000 if you pay upfront.Code Fellows has been setup by Brad Bouse and Andy Sack through the Seattle TechStars program. It’s a response to Seattle companies complaining about a lack of engineers, and a possible solution to that problem without just taking already trained engineers/programmers away from other companies.A $60k job promise is going to be enticing for most people, but you have to be the right type of person to be in with a chance. That means you’re motivated, willing to undertake this very intensive course, and have the means to survive for up to 6 months while they help you find a job after the course is over. If you’re a natural, then it may only be a few days before you’re signing a contract.If you’re interested and can get to Seattle in March, head on over to Code Fellows to find out more and apply.last_img
