Code 401 courses are the most intense courses offered at Code Fellows. Students come in with various backgrounds and leave with the training and skills they need to excel as professional software developers. Code 401 courses require prior experience in software development, whether through preceding Code Fellows courses, self-study, or on-the-job training.
Students will learn how to create mobile apps in Objective-C and Swift, Apple's new programming language, and use industry tools and frameworks such as Cocoa, Xcode, UIKit, Git, and more.

While every day is a little different, students can expect consistency. Half of the day, Monday through Friday, students are in class learning to code through lectures, in-class assignments, and live coding sessions. The other half of the day (or more) is spent in lab time, getting specialized attention from instructors and TAs and honing development skills—all preparation to land a high-paying job as a software developer. Four Fridays are dedicated to project presentations and our Professional Development Curriculum, which prepares students for their job search.
Code 401 courses are designed for the developer who needs to put the finishing touch on their skill set, get real-world experience, or learn another programming language. To find out more about the success of our graduates, read our Student Success page.
