Alchemy Code Lab: Prepares Students To Enter the Workforce as Mid-level Software Developers

Alchemy’s unique program prepares students for mid-level software development roles with training that simulates on-the-job experience. Created by software architects and taught by senior devs, Alchemy is dedicated to excellence in every aspect of tech education and career development.

Welcome to our partner spotlight series! Introduce yourself and the organization you’re representing.

Hi! I’m Ruthie Ditzler, Career Development Advocate at Alchemy. Alchemy is a 25-week full-time software development training program. We take pride in our positive and inclusive community and our performance outcomes. They demonstrate our graduates can access thriving-wage jobs in the tech industry and graduate ready to enter the workforce as mid-level software developers.

Sounds like a great experience! How did your organization come to exist?

Alchemy was founded in 2016 by senior software engineers who saw a gap between coding bootcamps that only taught people enough to get internships or entry-level roles, and the need for tech talent who are trained to be competent, full-time contributors right away.

To close that gap, students at Alchemy participate in live, small group training where they learn from the best. Our live classes are developed by software architects, led by senior developers, and informed by industry trends with a process-focused curriculum that mimics the expectations from them on the job.
