Coding for a new digital paradigm

“I have this great idea, but I don’t know how to build it.” Sounds familiar, right? Immediately after that sentence, you will most certainly hear “I need to find a developer”. But you know what? Most entrepreneurs never find that developer.

Ironhack was conceived to help entrepreneurs and business leaders quickly learn to code by squeezing “2 years of learning into 2 months”.

I am sure that you will find it not only very interesting but enlightening!
