We believe that everyone should have an opportunity to learn how to code and begin a career in technology, so we have been working over the past year to create a comprehensive and affordable iOS Development course led by an expert practitioner. No previous background required and we will be placing students into internships at local NYC startups.

We’ll be launching the class soon — learn more: accesscodenyc.org.
