Thinkful

With a will to learn anyone can become a great programmer or designer. But education today still remains too expensive, exclusive, and ineffective. That’s why we’re building an online school that combines the effectiveness of face-to-face learning with the accessibility of online education.

We're training the next generation of experts by creating a community of engineers and designers who can learn from and inspire one another. Today, Thinkful is a community of 300 programmers, designers and data scientists around the world with an average of ten years of experience. We’ve taught over 5,000 students, and we’re managed by a team of 24 in New York City.
