See what you will accomplish as a Lighthouse Graduate.
You won't just learn how to code, you will learn how to learn. By the time you graduate Lighthouse Labs, you will have a strong practical knowledge of a multitude of languages and the ability to learn new programming languages at a professional pace. We make sure that you will be able to evolve as a developer in an ever-evolving tech industry.
Rule #1 at Lighthouse Labs: Developers learn by doing. With an intensive, hands-on curriculum you will have the opportunity to work on open source and real world projects while being assisted by instructors. Less lectures and more TA supported coding leads to more well prepared and experienced developers.

The curriculum is intelligently designed and incredibly challenging. It will show you the limitations of your knowledge quickly while surrounding you with professionals who can help you grow. Expect to be stretched several times beyond your capacity!
