The Iron Yard in Raleigh.

Raleigh is not only the capital of the state of North Carolina, it is also home to North Carolina State University (NCSU) and makes up one part of the Research Triangle (together with Durham and Chapel Hill). The city is a major center for high-tech and biotech research, and was named the number one "fastest growing city for technology jobs” in 2012. To prepare the next generation of developers for opportunities in the Research Triangle area, we have campus locations in both Durham and Raleigh.
