Do you need Coding School to Survive the Media Melee?

Do you need Coding School to survive?

How many of you feel like the only way to get a job in media nowadays is to have a coding school background? If this is the case, don’t feel like you’re wrong, there are currently hundreds of coding schools popping up everywhere for the sheer reason that finding programmers is getting harder and harder to find. Some of the reasons for this is the really good ones want to get paid lots and lots of money or they want very flexible work and won’t jive with your work environment. Take for instance One Month founder Mattan Griffel, who originally built One Month, an online coding school because he was frustrated after unsuccessfully searching for a coder to build out a startup idea.

The Flatiron School offers a 12 weeks of full-time, intensive instruction (plus pre-work) “designed to turn you into a web developer” for a $10,000 tuition fee. Avi Flombaum states “The way I got serious about technology in high school wasn’t’ through building things. It was through hacking and lock-picking and cracking Wi-Fi passwords and making free phone calls,”. But even Flatiron School’s adult programming classes are run less like math classes than creative writing classes. Students build projects, review and discuss each other’s work, and then rewrite them.

Flombaum says. “I think there’s a fundamental misunderstanding of what this craft is about. If more people saw it the way I see it and the students see it, everyone would want to be a programmer.” A high school program by the Flatiron School is taught by teachers from digital literacy startup Skillcrush, will similarly focus on the fun and practical side of programming. Are the coders they send off into the world good enough to keep their jobs? Flatiron President Adam Enbar, says “No one has been let go yet,… we pay really close attention to that.”

Fullstack Academy is an immersive, full-time, 3-month web development course in New York City that prepare students for jobs at tech firms and startups. Students will learn full-stack web development, and developer culture. Master JavaScript + MVC, HTML5, CSS3, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, APIs and Libraries, SQL, relational databases, NOSQL, Git Version Control, Text Editors, Test-Driven Development, and Shell and Systems. Fullstack also offers a 16-week, part-time program for those who need more flexibility.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, there’s General Assembly, Code Academy. All of them providing immersive instruction to taking someone that knows nothing about coding and turning them into someone who could be employed at a start-up or tech company. Something to consider for sure if you’re looking for that perfect media job.
