TRAINING

What is Code Gym?

Code Gym is a training facility for great engineers. We run evening training sessions every 2 weeks. Check out our schedule here. Our courses are taught by industry experts and cover major engineering topics for different experience levels. We are building an ecosystem to sustain and maintain talented engineers in South Florida.

How does this Program work?

We offer an extreme 10 week training program for Newbies wanting to break into professional engineering. The Program covers 5 courses in each of our core tracks: User Interface, DevOps, Data Stores, Programming, and Frameworks. With almost 600 hours of instruction and hands on coding, you will go through the full stack of web development from product concept to launch. You will learn to work in teams, pair program, use agile methodoligies, and much more.

What is Orientation?

Every Thursday before a Training Program or Session begins we hold an open Orientation for incoming students. You need to bring your MacBook, final payments, Drivers License, and enthusiasm. We will review the program, answer any questions, setup your coding environment, and get you mentally ready to begin on Monday.

You said something about Prep Work?

Yes. Everyone should be prepping before they start a training session. We will distribute online course materials that should be covered when you are not sleeping. We ask everyone to complete before they come to Orientation. It shouldn't take you more than 20 hours.

Do I need to have my own computer?

Yes. You need to bring your own Apple MacBook to the Gym. You can purchase one from Apple refurbished or find a used one on craigslist.

Will I have something to show employers?

Yes, your code. Code Gym is not here to hand out certificates and pats on the back. We focus on what you can do. As an engineer, your skills and coding ability will always determine your value.

Do you help me find a job?

Yes. Most of our instructors are working in companies that are actively hiring, so come to class ready to impress. We have a lot of connections throughout the engineering and business community. When we feel that you are ready for your next challenge, we will set you up with interviews.

Can I work during The Program?

Yes, but you are expected to be able to handle the work load during each session. If you are not a working engineer then you need to be coding 9am - 5pm daily. For Newbies, we highly encourage you to focus only on your training for the 10 weeks.

Where are the Training Gyms?

Downtown Delray Beach. We are based out of Palm Beach County's amazing Delray Beach.

Tuition costs are due in full before Orientation begins. We find it best to get this out of the way, because come the first Monday of training we need you mentally focused on coding not figuring out your finances.
