Avi Flombaum, Co-founder and Dean at Flatiron School, spoke at FirstMark Capital’s Code Driven NYC on January 26, 2016. He discussed Flatiron’s online educational platform to help students learn programming online.

The Flatiron School trains highly motivated individuals in web application development. They teach best practices in Ruby, Rails, JavaScript, Object-Oriented Design, Git, SQL, Test-Driven Development. Their learning environment includes pair programming, project based discovery, and a relentless focus on teamwork. At the completion of the 12 week program, students will have spent at least 500 hours in a hands-on, intensive learning environment, coding solutions to real problems and working on real projects.
