DaVinci Coders Courses
Unlike most coding schools we provide our students with a selection of different course offerings, students are able to choose the path that best fits them.
The Classroom Experience
DaVinci Coders Accomplishment-Based Coder Learning
There's a huge disconnect between learning to code in a classroom and the real world skills to apply it in real life.
At DaVinci Coders we've decided to bring real-world skills into our learning environment.
After an intense 12 to 13-week training period, students will transition to spend the next 8 weeks working on applying your coding skills in a real-world work environment.
This is not an easy process. Being a coder means you're a problem-solver, working on hard projects, solving hard problems, with hard deadlines.
Our goal is for every student to leave class with real work experience and a real portfolio of projects they've worked on.
Class size makes a difference
Your class won't be larger than 16 students. Small classes give us the flexibility to do the following...
- Customize the curriculum to individual needs and skill level
- Ask more questions - get more answers
- Create a better student to instructor ratio
- Build a more compatible student-mentor relationship
- Be more hands-on in providing helpful employment resources to alumni
How Much Time?
Put in the time, get the results
For each course, you will be required to attend class 3 times a week. In addition to this requirement, most of our students have found they spend 30-40 hours on additional class related work outside of the classroom.
Don't Miss Installfest
Getting your computer in coding shape!
Installfest is mandatory for all students and is held the weekend prior to the first day of class. The instructor-guided session is a time for students to download and install all necessary software to hit the ground running on the first day of class.
What you need
Your supply list:
- A working laptop meeting the minimum requirements for the course (each course has it's own requirments)

Comparison of Average Tuition Rates
Haven't Tried Coding Before?
No worries! There are several free online tutorials to help get you started!
One thing we look for in a good applicant is whether or not they've taken some initiative to learn a programming language beforehand. People who demonstrate drive and passion about learning the basics of a programming language tend to do a lot better in our full-immersion, instructor led, training courses. The following is a list of FREE online coding tutorials and resources that we encourage all of our students to try before they take one of our courses. This is a great exercise in finding the language that fits you best. If you can rock these programming tutorials then DaVinci Coders is definitely your next step toward learning how to code:
Who is Learning to Code?
The demand for programmers in the tech industry is very high. Our courses will provide you the introduction and skills to start working in the technology field. Our typical student falls into one of these categories:
- People looking for an alternative to traditional colleges
- Recently laid off and looking to retrain
- Military Veterans entering the workforce
- People looking to re-invent themselves
- Recent college grads who can't find work
- Entrepreneurs building tech start-ups
- Employees updating and/or retraining their skills
- And many others
A large portion of our students come from outside of Colorado, and from all over the world. From South Korea to Venezuela to Turkey, and all over the United States.
