About Codesmith

Codesmith is a selective, need-blind 12 week program teaching Software Engineering and Machine Learning with locations at LA and NYC. Graduates are transforming healthcare at Heal and Impact Health, mental health at UCLA, and drone technology at Airmap, while others work on large systems at the top technology companies in the country including Google, Amazon, and LinkedIn.
Focusing largely on computer science and full-stack JavaScript, with an emphasis on the most valuable contemporary technologies - React, Redux, Node, build tools, and machine learning - this program enables Codesmith students (known as Residents) to build compelling open-source projects, and ultimately move on to positions as leading software engineers.
Residents become engineers, not technicians, through a deep understanding of advanced JavaScript practices, fundamental computer science concepts (such as algorithms & data structures), and object-oriented & functional programming. The curriculum drives residents to develop strong problem-solving ability and technical communication skills, the most valued capacities in a software engineer.
In addition to its core curriculum, Codesmith offers an extensive hiring support program that guides residents through whiteboarding, advanced technical interview practice, resume and profile development, and interviewing strategies. Support continues upon graduation with bi-weekly check-ins and, after offers, negotiation support. Overall, 25% of graduates receive offers for Senior Engineer positions and above, and about 70% receive offers for Mid-level Engineer.
