You created the path for an amazing opportunity for me and my family.

I distinctly remember telling my wife: "If I can get into The Disruption Institute, it’s going to change our lives forever". I was totally right.

The Disruption Institute isn't for everyone, it's only for the most motivated individuals. Are you a self starter? Do you take initiative? Do you like the challenge of solving difficult problems? We're looking for people who have an intense desire to learn how to build cool software. You could have zero programming experience, be an industry veteran or somewhere in between. If you want a structured environment, the atmosphere and energy of a hackathon, access to expert mentors….this is the place for you! Do you have motivation like this former grad?

There are a lot of great learning resources out there, but we're offering something much different. This is about more than just learning a particular development language. We've created an environment where you'll build things together with others who also want to learn. In addition, you'll have access to expert mentors who want to help you succeed. The relationships and knowledge you gather here can be valuable forever. Here's an example of a great success story from one of our grads!
