The Iron Yard in Houston.

Houston, Texas is home to many amazing enterprise, startup and healthcare software companies. We’re excited to be a part of the action. Our programs train high quality developers who will help businesses across the ecosystem build amazing digital products.

New course offering
The Iron Yard's new 24-week Front-End Course is an evening/weekend class that will take place Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays evenings, and Saturdays. It is designed for students who want to learn programming and launch a career in software, but simply can't quit their jobs.

What will you learn?
The 24-week course uses the same curriculum as the full-time immersive class, only spread out over a longer period of time and held during non-working hours. By the end of this class, you'll be able to problem solve programming tasks using JavaScript, giving you the ability to create dynamic websites and applications that function like Twitter, Spotify and others. With a working knowledge of modern JavaScript frameworks, you'll graduate with a deep understanding of what it takes to be a successful front-end programmer in the industry today.
