The Turing School of Software & Design is a 501(c)3 non-profit school located in Denver, Colorado. Our primary program focuses on Ruby, Rails, and JavaScript across four six-week semesters for a total engagement of 27 weeks.

In March of 2015 we joined with a collective of other training providers to form the New Economy Skills Training Association (NESTA). That organization put together a list of outcomes data points that member organizations would publish in the future.

This is the 2015 Outcomes Report for Turing. The following data represents the 1406, 1407, 1409, 1410, 1412, 1502, 1503, and 1505 cohorts of the Turing School, who graduated between December 2014 and December 2015.

Completion Rates

  • Total students who could have graduated: 136
  • Number of students who are still enrolled: 4 (due to repeated modules / breaks)

Scenario 1

Two developers (a man and a woman) walk into a tech meetup and introduce themselves to someone. The new person asks what they do - they both say "software developer". The person responds to the woman with "Wow! You don't look like a developer!".

Scenario 2

A group of three men and one women are working on a group project. While discussing who's going to do the CSS, everyone says they'd rather not be responsible for this part of the project.

One male student turns to the woman and says "You'll do the styling, right? You have to be good at that stuff."
