Former Iron Yard leaders to launch new coding school in Greenville

By December 5, 2017 February 18th, 2020 No Comments

Four months after The Iron Yard announced its decision to close, two of the company’s former executives, including founder and CEO Peter Barth, plan to open a new coding school in downtown Greenville.

The school, also known as Carolina Code School, will offer a 12-week full-time web development immersive course to prepare college students and working professionals for a career in software development – no coding experience required.

The course, which cost $13,999, will be offered six times a year and accommodate up to 20 students per cohort. Those accepted into the course will study the basics of front-end and back-end web development for eight weeks and then focus on a programming language (Java, JavaScript, Ruby, etc.) of their choice.

“Our goal is to prepare students with the skills they need for careers in software development,” said Barth. “We’re not only going to teach them the basics of coding. We’re going to make sure they can actually apply what they’ve learned outside of the classroom.”

Barth added that students who complete the course will have the opportunity to enter a career support program, which provides four additional weeks of curriculum along with support throughout the career search process. Financing will be available.
