Classes

Code 101 and Code 201 are designed for beginners and developers who are exploring careers in tech and want practical, real-world training in the fundamentals of software development. Code 301 focuses on intermediate training in the languages and technologies that software developers work with every day, such as APIs, SQL, and AJAX, plus more advanced projects in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Code 401 courses take intermediate developers and train them in a specific programming language (plus tools and best practices) to help them land high-paying jobs in the tech industry. Graduates of Code 401 courses are ready to hit the ground running as full-blown software developers in tech companies or startups of their own.

We do not currently offer courses online. All of our classes are in person, with extensive access to an instructor and TAs. We focus on project-based learning, i.e. working with others in a collaborative environment.

In-person training serves multiple purposes. It teaches students how to work together in a team, makes it much easier to sustain the intensity and pace of our program, and gives students direct access to instructors and classmates.

In our Daytime track, students will be at DeltaV Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (and often longer).

Class time focuses on lectures, whiteboard practices, and “reverse classroom” discussions about your code. Lab time spent in group projects, on homework, and getting one-on-one help from instructors and TAs.

Project weeks deviate from this schedule to focus on your group projects. This is an opportunity to work with other students on a larger project that adds to your experience and resume. You and fellow classmates work in the co-working space with instructors, co-instructors, and TAs nearby.

The course uses additional textbooks and online readings, lessons, and tutorials, plus various assignments and quizzes. Group projects and pair programming also add to your experience and education.

Throughout Code 401 courses, students also hear from guest speakers or learn from our Career Development curriculum.

We believe in life improvement through technical education, and we’re tired of hearing, “There aren’t enough software developers out there.” We know there are plenty of talented people who know how to write code or are ready to learn, and can contribute value to a company after the right kind of immersive training.
DeltaV Code School provides only a pass/fail transcript and does not assign letter grades to each student. However, to monitor student progress throughout each program, DeltaV Code School uses a point-based grading system that is introduced to the students on the first day of each program.

Students receive a specified number of points for assignments, quizzes, projects, participation, lighting talks, and/or other deliverables during the program. Program instructors maintain and update point totals throughout the program such that students can log in to the system and view their scores.

Instructors do not assign grades on any curve or adjusted system; all points are assigned completely based on completion of assignments and quality of work and energy invested.

Code 201, Code 301, and Code 401 students who maintain point totals of less than 90% of their potential points are considered to be underperforming. Because of the wide variety of circumstances and possible appropriate remedies, DeltaV Code School gives its instructors broad latitude for handling students with grades below 90%.

For example, students with less than 70% of available points in a course can be excused from the program. Students between 70% and 90% may be given a verbal or written warning, if it appears they will have difficulty in completing the course.

Career Development & Careers

Immersion is the key to quickly learning the tools and programming languages that you’ll need on the job as a professional software developer. Our program takes hard-working, ambitious individuals and channels their drive into several months of intensive training.

This process is even faster for students who already have some personal or on-the-job training in programming. If you are an absolute beginner, start learning to code in Code 101 or Code 201.

While placement training and service may be provided, the school cannot promise or guarantee employment to any student or graduate. The DeltaV Code School is not accredited by a U.S. Department of Education-recognized accrediting agency, and as such any credits earned at the school may not be able to be transferred to accredited schools and may not qualify students for employment.

All of our DeltaV 401 2017 graduates were employed within two months of graduation with an average starting salary of $58,333. Two were hired by UFG Insurance as Application Developers.

Admissions

Fill out our application form, and we’ll be in contact to discuss your goals and previous experience with programming. Our goal is to make sure you’re signed up for a course that matches your skill level.
If you’ve never done any programming and are new to programming, we offer a Code 101. Code 101 is a single day workshop for those curious about programming and if it’s the right career for them. Code 101 meets on a Saturday, and students build a static webpage with HTML and CSS, hear from industry professionals and fellow students, and get a feel for DeltaV’s learning experience.
At this point, our classes focus on web and mobile development. We offer a range of classes , and you can find more by going to Learn to Code.
