Turing believes in community-driven education. Our community is built on three core values which guide our work: love, respect, and curiosity.
Love is the spirit that the staff dedicates to the students. Love is the energy of students guiding and mentoring each other. Love is the alumni spending their time ensuring the success of those who follow in their footsteps. Respect values people. Respect values perspectives. Respect is the understanding that we're here to do our best work — sometimes we succeed and sometimes we fail. Respect is believing that each of us can become more than we are today. Curiosity begs us to as "What if?" Curiosity asks us "Why not?" And curiosity challenges us with "if not me, then who? If not now, then when?" 1
Turing is difficult, but worth it. 50% of graduates are employed as full-time developers within 30 days of graduation. By 120 days, the percentage jumps to 96%. They're not project managers or off in a corner doing the stapling. They're full-time software developers in careers they love. Their average salary is $75K and, for most, that's nearly double their previous salary.
Dedication to Student Success
Every programmer thinks they can teach programming. They're wrong. Turing's staff is a diverse mix of educators-turned-programmers and programmers-turned-educators. We understand how to implement a meaningful academic curriculum and how to write great code. As we approach our 20th cohort, we continue to experiment, improve, and find new ways to further accelerate our students' learning.
We are an educational institution and student success is our number one priority.
A New Tech Industry
We believe that the status quo is not good enough. Our mission is to unlock human potential by training a diverse, inclusive student body to succeed in high-fulfillment technical careers. Our vision is a world powered by technology where the people building it represent the people using it. We're here to build a movement.
Our students reflect the whole spectrum of skin tones. They're L, G, B, T, and allies. They're women, men, and non-binary. Some have four-year degrees, some have masters' degrees, some have no degree, and none of them care. But there are five characteristics they all share: growth mindset, engagement, agency, empathy, and grit.
If you're passionate about building up the people and world around you then you are welcome here.
Proudly Located in Denver, Colorado
We believe in critical mass. What possibilites emerge when a student body of 120 is all under the same roof every day? There are groups interested in other programming languages, people who get together to exercise, and most importantly there's always a helping hand when you get stuck. The community becomes powerful.
But over half our students come from outside the state. After the program, more than half scatter out to places like New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and LA. But for seven months we call Denver home. There's probably a training program in the city you're from, but there's no finer place to become a developer than in Denver at Turing.
