Over the course of 12 intense weeks, each student will be transformed into a professional software engineer, become proficient in Java and JavaScript, and learn multiple design concepts. Other topics covered include object-oriented programming, design patterns, Git, MVC, test driven development, database queries, project management methodologies, and clean coding principles.

Zip Code Wilmington instructors are elite programmers with decades of experience building real, scalable software. From banks to mature startups, Zip Code partners include brand-names like Bank of America, Barclays, Capital One, and JPMorgan. After completion of the program, Zip Code assists with placing qualified graduates into a full-time role or 26-week apprenticeship at a partner company. Through the apprenticeship, students receive additional education, access to workshops, access to a mentor, and on-the-job guidance.

Zip Code Wilmington looks for passionate self-starters with grit, tenacity and a fierce love of problem-solving. There's no need for applicants to have previous coding experience, but Zip Code recommends that applicants begin learning to prepare for their interview. The application process consists of an online application, phone interview, timed coding task and group interview. Zip Code offers financing options including full scholarships and stipends for individuals earning less than 200% of the poverty level. Students pay $3,000 upfront, and the remaining balance is paid by corporate partners if hired for an apprenticeship or direct-hire job, along with completing 26 work weeks of employment with the company.

"Prepared me fully for my future"

I loved every minute of Zip Code, but it's not for the faint of heart. They have to teach you enough to be hire-able ... in three months. So needless to say, it's a grueling pace. Long hours, at least one day on the weekend, maybe 80 hours a week. But... Read More

One of the best things I got from Zip Code was the soft skills training: from how to apply for and get a job, to how to work on an agile software team. There's so much more to software development than just typing into the machine, something I hadn't realized before going in.

The new space is beautiful, the tech is top notch (I came out and got a job straight away writing Angular),
