The traditional approach of becoming a Software Developer takes too long and focuses on the least enjoyable parts.
CodeWorks was created by a set of brothers who believe software development should be fun and the barriers to entry need to be more approachable. Jake and Matt Overall saw the traditional approach of becoming a Software Developer as jarring and off-putting. Largely the traditional approach takes too long to learn anything relevant and sadly tends to focus on the least enjoyable parts of development. While this approach has worked for a few it has also turned many capable people away from careers in development, a problem which has created a massive shortage in the industry. Believing there were many solvable flaws (aka bugs) with this system approach the brothers set out to resolve the issue.
Having arrived in the software development field by vastly different means the brothers combined their experience to come up with a fun method of education that focuses on real world needs. Knowing the challenges, requirements, and demands developers are faced with everyday the best way to learn is to create an environment that simulates current industry standards and needs while maintaining the interest and passion of those who work there.
With this idea flushed out and tested on a few close friends the brothers launched the vision for the company and have been growing and innovating ever since. Since starting they continue to expand the team, refine the process, and keep up with the ever changing needs of the tech industry.
