About the Program
Sessions meet on campus twice a week for two-hour lab and coding sessions. During the first half of the program, students build their skills through labs and projects using the APIs of popular apps like Tumblr, Yelp, and Twitter. Students then apply what they’ve learned during the second six weeks, working together in small teams to build a completely original app from the ground, up. The culmination of the program is a Demo Day event at which students present their finished products to an audience of peers, faculty, and industry professionals.

CodePath is the brainchild of two tech enthusiasts with a passion for teaching, Timothy Lee and Nathan Esquenazi.
CodePath has spent years training senior engineers and designers inside of companies like Facebook, Dropbox, and Google on the latest technologies in mobile and web development. They believe that bringing the same programs to universities and introducing modern technologies like iOS, Android, and Node.js in the context of building practical apps will complement the traditional computer science curriculum.
As students near graduation, this can also help expose and prepare them for the thousands of opportunities in tech companies in Silicon Valley as well as other tech hubs. However, this program is not just for existing computer science students. CodePath believes that introducing technology through building web and mobile apps will attract a diverse popu
CodePath is known for its extremely rigorous approach to learning that requires a monumental level of commitment and grit from students. CodePath University students are meant to be held to the same high standards as professional engineers, so that their learning can open the door to excellent professional opportunities.
