Courses emphasize the most valuable contemporary technologies, including React, Redux, Node, DevOps, build tools, and machine learning.

Codesmith residents become engineers 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 students through white-boarding, advanced technical interview practice, resume and profile development, and interview and networking strategies. Support continues after 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. The vast majority of graduates earn over $110,000 annually in their first job after the program (LA median starting salary: $117,500 ; NY median starting salary: $112,500 ; third-party audited & CIRR-member).
