If you already know the basics of coding and want to dig deeper — whether to just keep learning together in a relaxed environment, or perhaps to explore a potential career change — you're in the right place.
Shift_Up offers two programs designed for you:
Code Night Membership ($30/month) — 1x/week, with student developer coaches. Anyone may attend 1x/month for free! There is no admissions process; anyone may join.
Standard Membership ($150/month) — 2x/week, with junior professional developer coaches, access to Shift_Up projects, skills maps, and assessments; and full access to our online Slack community. There is no admissions process; anyone may join.
Shift_Up Code Nights are relaxed weekly opportunities to teach yourself to code with in-person community and student coaches.
Shift_Up Code Night weekly memberships are $30/month. Financial aid is available, and anyone may attend once per month for free.
Code Night memberships reflect a deeper commitment to learning, including required regular (75%+) attendance and an invitation to our 24/7 online Slack community. The Membership provides you a regular space, cohort, and accountability to learn to code with access to student coaches.
The Shift_Up Standard Membership includes access to our 2x/week class of dedicated learners and professional developer coaches who meet regularly at the Durfee Innovation Society (2470 Collingwood Street, Detroit, MI 48206), near Detroit's Boston Edison neighborhood.
Students with a Standard Membership meet in person on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9pm. They receive access to Shift_Up projects, skills maps, and assessments, as well as full access to our online Slack community.
The Shift_Up Standard Membership is not selective; anyone may join by purchasing a membership here for $150/month. Financial aid is available.
Unlike our selective Part-Time Intensive Membership, however, Standard Members do not have access to Shift_Up career services, certification, or 1:1 mentorship. Standard Members may apply to upgrade to the Part-Time Intensive Membership at any point.
