CodePath is offering a free 8-week evening program in San Francisco for professional engineers interested in working with others to learn iOS or Android and develop a mobile product along the way. Participants collaborate in teams of 2-3 to design and implement their apps and at the end compete for a $10,000 cash prize at our CodePath Demo Day. As part of the program, we will have weekly lectures and assigned projects to quickly ramp you up on all aspects of mobile development.
What do I need to do to apply?
Prerequisites are you must be located in the bay area, have a CS or engineering degree (or equivalent experience) and must not currently be a professional iOS or Android developer. However, please note that if you are currently an Android developer, you may participate in the iOS program and vice-versa. We’ve run this program with over 100 engineers in 5 cohorts, and it’s been a lot of fun so far! The next cohorts start on June 4th, and we are currently accepting applications for iOS or Android by May 14, but we admit participants on a rolling basis, so apply early.
Free? What’s the catch?
As mobile applications are becoming increasingly important, there are many companies interested in expanding the pool of experienced mobile engineers in the Bay Area. By working with companies to secure sponsorship, we are able to provide this program free of cost.
We started CodePath to create a place for startup engineers to learn new technologies, provide mentorship, and collaborate on impactful projects with other engineers. If your company is interested in training or sponsoring our initiatives, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Want to help out?
We try to match each group with an experienced Android or iOS developer, if you’re interested in mentoring, please email us at email@example.com. If you know other developers that might be interested in this program, please forward this email to them.
In addition, we have released extensive open-source community guides for Android, we appreciate any contributions or feedback to help improve them! You can follow us on twitter at @thecodepath for future updates about our programs.
