Now, he’s a programmer analyst at an energy startup. “Between the instructors and the curriculum I learned so much more than I thought was possible in such a short time, and I definitely felt prepared to enter the tech field upon graduation,” Adam says.

He also found his first network in the tech community through Flatiron School. Adam now has friends and professional connections in tech that he can turn to for advice.

She says she learned a lot about herself and grew as a person during the immersive Software Engineering program. “I was able to build personal connections with everyone on campus and when things got hard, they didn’t allow me to fail. I learned how to code, but I also became a better person and for that I will be forever grateful,” Olivia says.

Olivia’s new role as a junior software engineer at a medical startup gives her the stability she needs as a mother. She also feels like her work is making an impact on society.

Houston often gets labeled as an “oil and gas” city. While there’s certainly some truth to that, our graduates are proof that Houston is also a tech city. Every industry in Houston needs tech talent. That includes oil and gas, aerospace, construction, and healthcare. As our graduates show, there’s also a great startup scene in the city. 

2020世界杯40强赛赛程We’re excited to be a part of the tech community and to help shape Houston’s future. With our immersive Software Engineering and Data Science programs, our students are learning the skills they need to succeed today and tomorrow.
