When it comes to learning to code, it’s difficult to know where to start and who to trust. We guide serious career changers through our proven software engineering training process. Our graduates have taken control of their futures and now work as developers at top tech companies.

I’m two weeks out from graduation, and I have a wonderful job offer with a large tech company! Your mileage may vary, but for me, I nearly doubled my income. Not to mention the other great benefits. And I get to work on cool, cutting edge, technologies. It’s literally everything I could have hoped for.

I chose Project Shift for a number of reasons: I wanted to learn JavaScript, I didn’t want to have to choose between front-end and back-end specializations, I liked the approach of learning big-picture concepts alongside practical skills, and I thought the selective admissions and small class size would mean getting the most out of our 12 weeks. I was definitely not disappointed. I worked hard and learned a TON.

As far as my experience post-Project Shift, I had three interviews the week after demo night, two of which led to second interviews and then job offers. Morgan, Sean and Aaron would constantly send us leads to the group and to me personally when they saw positions that aligned with my interests.

About our Software Engineering Fellowship

Just 12 to 14 Fellows Accepted

We’re all about people over profit and investing deeply in mentorships, which is why we’re small and highly selective (less than 20% acceptance rate), yet inclusive of applicants from every background.

Computer Science Replacement

With an advanced curriculum, our graduates learn the stuff that coding bootcamps don’t teach and can do what CS grads can’t.

100% Transparency

Project Shift is the only education in North Carolina accountable for publishing student job placement statistics. Read our official CIRR report here.
