Our dedicated instructors have years of experience both teaching and writing curriculum. Our classes are small, so you can move faster and cover more material in less time, and our curriculum is industry-relevant, enabling you to hit the ground running.
Contribute to real-world projects or open source, gain a deep understanding of the industry's conventions and best practices, and master the technical skills you need to succeed in the workforce.
We are seeking students who are ready to embrace the immersion experience head-on, are lovers of problem solving and committed to learning code. Enthusiastic, collaborative learners thrive at Rithm.
Plan to spend 80-120 hours mastering fundamentals. Our prework is mostly project-based, and covers material from the following free courses:
Before your class starts, we'll also send out announcements about when the space will be open to you, so that you can come finish up the prework, ask questions, and meet your new classmates.
Full-time classes last 17 weeks, and are based at Rithm's San Francisco campus in the Mission. Classes are held Monday - Friday, 9 am - 6 pm.
What you'll be doing on any given day may vary, but you'll typically be coding for a majority of the day, either alone or in pairs. Instructors will lecture on more conceptual topics in the morning and afternoon, but we encourage you to spend as much time as possible coding while instructors are available. In the later afternoon and evenings, you'll have material to read, watch, and review in order to solidify your understanding and prepare for the next day.
Full-time job support
The final three weeks are devoted to the beginning of your job search. You'll learn computer science fundamentals, solve problems on the white board every day, and you'll learn about strategies to help you pass behavioral screens and get your foot in the door. The goal for this part of the course is to give you the tools you'll need to get the job, rather than the tools you'll need to be successful once you're on the job.
As with the first part of the course, you'll be working full time in the space during these final three weeks.
Our program is fast-paced and requires a lot from our students. If we see you struggling, we do everything we can to help. If you are not seeing success after the first 6 weeks, your time as a student will come to an end and we will offer you a full refund, minus your enrollment deposit. We will still support you in enrolling in a future class if you wish.
We’re committed to creating a phenomenal learning environment. Not only does that mean high quality instructors and an amazing campus, it also means admitting students who are fully committed to learning to code and who will fully immerse themselves in the Rithm experience. You’ll spend so much time working with and learning from your peers, so it’s vital that everyone is invested in the program and ready to take an active role in their learning.
Our intention is to foster every student’s growth, and that means we’ll never push you to graduate or finish the program if it’s not in your best interest. We also provide a full refund (minus your enrollment deposit) if you do not find a job in web development six months after graduating.
