Skills Track Membership

Shift_Up About Page pic 3.jpg

Eight months, 10 hours/week learn to build full-stack web applications in a fast-paced yet flexible environment, with extra support, structure, and accountability.

  • Are you a product manager, marketer, or entrepreneur looking to learn the fundamentals of software development to improve performance at your current role?

  • Are you simply curious to develop the skill of web development for its own sake?

This is the membership for you. Open to all (non-selective admissions).
