Short History

Husband and Wife, Bootcamp Graduates, Development Team and a dream

  1. Krystine graduates from The Iron Yard


    After having their daughter, Krystine started a bootcamp to better her career. Three weeks into her maternity leave she started coding and graduated at the top of her class

  2. Chris graduates from Galvanize


    Wanting to fortify the skills he already had in technology, Chris attended a full-stack development bootcamp and found a love for the PHX Startup Community

  3. We thought of a solution


    Frustrated by how the market discounted bootcamp graduate’s skills - the idea for a way to help both the community and graduates was created.
