Become a professional iOS developer with proven curriculum in 12 weeks at Flatiron School's state-of-the-art campus in lower Manhattan.

To turn students into professional coders in just 12 weeks, our program must teach not only how to code, but how to be a professional developer.

The first is all about internal skills. The second depends also on how one interacts with & influences the world around them.

The course starts out highly structured, with frequent scheduled lectures & simple code labs. These first few weeks increase a student's fluency with a core set of technologies. A student might have 3-4 hrs of lecture per day & less time for independent work. As the course evolves, there's deliberately less structure: fewer lectures & more project work. In the beginning of the course, students work on structured assignments but soon progress into developing their own iOS applications. We go from handing you the fish to teaching you how to fish; from handing you the necessary code snippets & libraries to teaching you how to solve problems yourself. Critically, about 70% of students' time is spent working in teams or pairs.

A large part of being a developer is learning to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Throughout the semester, our students engage in a wealth of activities that build the communication & collaboration skills essential to growing as developers.

Outstanding developers also need to become trusted members of the broader coding community, so we host networking & instructional events with special guests, from technical talks to panels of tech startup CTOs. We also empower & lift our students into positions of leadership by helping them to host Meetups, give presentations, & requiring them to blog on a regular basis.
