IamA Zach Feldman, Chief Academic Officer at the New York Code + Design Academy. AMA about learning to code!
Hi Reddit! Our mission at the New York Code + Design Academy is to teach anyone to code. We offer evening, online, and intensive classes in Web Development, iOS + Android programming, User Interface + User Experience Design, and various other technology/design related topics. We're the first school to teach an in person class on Apple's new development language, Swift.
As the Chief Academic Officer, I devise curriculum for our classes, make sure teachers' and students' needs are taken care of, and run the academic side of our company. I also am an experienced Web Developer + Rubyist (Github). AMA about learning to code or learning technology skills!
EDIT: Ok I'm here, bring on the q's!
EDIT at 12:57PM EST: I'm still answering questions! Feel free to keep asking =D
UPDATE 6:17pm EST: Hey guys, I have to go teach Web Development 100 (we're learning about Sinatra tonight, yay!). If anyone has any further questions, I'll keep answering them when I can as I'm a pretty avid Redditor. Just keep asking!
