Turn To Tech is now accepting applications!

We’re the only bootcamp where the curriculum is based on building real world products for real world companies
– in most cases, companies we’ve invested in. You will actually help make a real product that is going to
be released to the market. It’s going to feel like a startup, and when all those interview requests start
coming in, you’ll be ready to talk the talk and show off all the awesome work you’ve been up to.

Why we are different

Turn To Tech’s 12 week program is quite different from any other bootcamp you may have heard of. Why? That comes from who runs it. Unlike most bootcamp companies, Turn To Tech was founded by seasoned technology entrepreneurs and executives from Fortune 500 companies who have built successful companies, launched successful products and hired (.. and fired) hundreds of developers over the past 15 years. And they know the difference between programmers vs. productive software engineers.

Think about why work experience counts a lot when you apply for a job. That’s because real work experience teaches you things you never learn from a book. But despite that –  most other bootcamps focus on the same book/lecture style of teaching.

We cover things you’ll only learn on a job. For example, you have a complex project – how do you split the work between two developers with different skills? Or how do you go about debugging large pieces of software written by multiple individuals, written in different languages, who may or may not be around.

There probably are a hundred other such things we cover – to learn more about us – send us an email at nyc@turntotech.io, schedule a time and come in and check it out for yourself. You’ll talk to the current students and meet our founders.


Collaborate with professionals

The Turn To Tech team has several professional software engineers who will interact with on a daily basis. Our course instructors are software engineers with industry experience. Technology entrepreneurs work out of our co-working space. And we host at least a couple of tech events every week. All this will help you advance yourself professionally and expand your horizons and network.
