Company / App Name: Makers Academy
What does it do?
Makers Academy is a highly-selective, 12 week full-time program that teaches web development.
We teach Ruby / Rails / Heroku / Git / Agile / HTML / CSS / JS and much, much more.
Why do we need it?
Demand for developers is skyrocketing. Software is eating the world. Demand for developers is increasing 21% YoY while supply has flatlined at 1% YoY.
If you have all your fingers and toes you can see that these numbers do not add up.

Our applicants are usually:
- Entrepreneurs who want to be their own tech-cofounder
- Freelancers looking to diversify their skill-set
- People looking to change careers
- People that are simply passionate about learning to code.
