We’re a team of experienced instructors with years of experience both teaching and writing curriculum. We work closely with partner companies to ensure that our curriculum is not only of the highest quality, but is also relevant, enabling graduates to hit the ground running on day one. With a small student to teacher ratio and experienced instructors, we can move faster and cover more material than most other bootcamps.
We've helped hundreds of students become professional web developers. As a student at Rithm, you'll graduate with the technical skills you'll need to succeed, along with a deep understanding of the industry's conventions and best practices. We also place a strong emphasis on contributing to open source software, which provides a great opportunity to experience what being a web developer is all about.
Our program is fast-paced and requires a lot from our students. We assess all students weekly and if we see you’re struggling, we do everything we can to help you improve. If, during the first six weeks, your progress continues to not keep pace, we step in and invoke our Separate Ways Clause; your time as a student will come to an end and we’ll offer you a full refund (minus your enrollment deposit). 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.
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.
As much as we care about your education, we care more about your health. We’ve seen many students burn out pulling all nighters coding and struggling to solve problems. At Rithm, your coding is done in class and we make sure you leave here at a reasonable hour. After class, you are responsible for reviewing, reading and preparing for the next day’s sprint. We understand this experience is highly stressful and are committed to making sure you take care of yourself.

Full-time classes last 13 weeks, and are based at Rithm's San Francisco campus in the Mission. Classes are held:
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.
Part-time interview prep
Two weeks before the end of the full-time program, Rithm students will apply to Outco. Upon admission, part-time instruction will commence and students will begin the job hunt. This portion of the program is based at Outco's campus in downtown San Francisco. Classes are held:
