About 4Geeks Academy
4Geeks Academy is a coding bootcamp in Miami that teaches Full Stack Development and Data Science and Machine Learning. Since 2015, we’ve been redefining the way tech education happens. On average, our grads see a 22k salary increase after landing their first job. About 84% of graduates are landing that job within six months of program completion.
At the heart of 4Geeks mission is our commitment to break down traditional barriers to education and provide access to underserved and underrepresented populations. “Thanks to the various partner organizations we work with, we are able to offer financial support to those who really deserve it. I love to see students get out of jobs like Uber driving, waitressing, warehouse jobs, etc. and land that first role as a developer. Co.Lab is a great program that allows them to gain experience and network with other tech professionals as they search for this first role. I’m really happy we get to work with such an awesome organization.”
-Alissa Landra, Campus Manager at 4Geeks Academy
