Over the last 4 years, the Iron Yard has led the code school industry in preparing students for careers as software developers. The industry as a whole is still young and its leaders face the challenge of a nascent market, as well as the demands facing all institutions in the higher education marketplace.
In considering the current environment, the board of The Iron Yard has made the difficult decision to cease operations at all campuses after teaching out remaining summer cohorts. We will finish out summer classes completely, including career support.
While our journey is coming to an end, we will always take pride in the thousands of people our staff helped to launch new careers.
Our mission is to connect with people pursuing the craft and lifelong adventure of technology and help equip them with the skills they need to both get started and progress throughout their careers. Our hope is that those we journey with are energized to make a difference through their work.
We believe that passionate, talented people who love what they do will create and sustain great families, jobs, companies and solutions to the world’s problems. It’s been said that the sum of parts can be greater than the whole. We couldn’t agree more. The Iron Yard is made up of a broad, deep and growing network of instructors, developers, designers, marketers, entrepreneurs, partners, board members and hiring partners, all of whom are passionate about about waking up each day and accomplishing our mission.
We've been told we're a work hard, play hard crew, and we couldn't agree more. Our standards for producing awesome stuff are extremely high, but so is our capacity to truly enjoy life alongside the people we work with.Meet the team
We work really hard, but a constantly imbalanced life isn't healthy for anyone. We work in a way that is fast, efficient and fun so we can invest in important areas of life outside the office.
