Over the last 4 years, the Iron Yard has led the code school industry in preparing students for careers as software developers. The industry as a whole is still young and its leaders face the challenge of a nascent market, as well as the demands facing all institutions in the higher education marketplace.
In considering the current environment, the board of The Iron Yard has made the difficult decision to cease operations at all campuses after teaching out remaining summer cohorts. We will finish out summer classes completely, including career support.
While our journey is coming to an end, we will always take pride in the thousands of people our staff helped to launch new careers.
We're working directly with Zappos, the Downtown Project, Vegas Tech Fund and The Mill accelerator program to bring coding classes and tech education to Las Vegas' robust ecosystem. As Vegas works to revitalize the downtown entertainment hub with an intense focus on local businesses and high-tech entrepreneurs, we're there to train an ever-ready workforce of software developers.
