Our Education Philosophy

Why Python

Python is an important programming language to know. It’s the primary language used in about half of the jobs Hackbright graduates accept. Once you’ve learned your first coding language, it becomes easier for you to pick up others. Our graduates have no trouble learning languages like Ruby, Java, C++, Swift, Android, and much more. Engineering teams hire you knowing that you have the foundational skills you need to thrive in their companies.

Think Like an Engineer

It’s not just about learning the newest technology. It’s about developing the mindset you need to succeed as an engineer. You must be adaptable and learn how to conquer new tech problems. Employers know that you have been taught to think like an engineer and therefore, have confidence that you can effectively adopt other languages and tackle unique challenges.

All-Women Learning Environment

The immersive learning experience is intense. That’s why we’ve created an environment that allows you to ask questions comfortably and get the attention you need to make the most of your time here.

Balanced Learning

Coding nonstop isn’t the best way to absorb. Class ends at 6pm and we encourage students to get rest before learning again the next day. You are taking in new, challenging, and intellectually demanding material. It’s important to be in a good state to learn.

Mentorship

Mentorship is a proven factor to ensuring women not only stay, but make their mark in tech. Mentorship through industry partners, alumnae, and staff is one of Hackbright Academy’s most important resources.
