About Code Fellows

Launch a new career in an educational environment that fuels transformation. We started in 2013 as Seattle’s first code school, with a class of 20 aspiring software developers. A lot has changed since that first cohort—we’ve expanded our curriculum; moved to a bigger, brighter campus in the heart of Seattle; added new programming languages; formally launched robust Career Transition Services; and much more.

Over 1000 software developers have graduated from our program and joined over 500 companies across the nation.

“Our first course was made up of people from all kinds of backgrounds—dancers, bartenders, IT pros, folks from the gaming industry. Our theory was that a few intensive weeks of classes could have them job-ready. We knew we had hit something big when two students received job offers on the last day of class… Before they had technically even graduated!"
