Spring 2020 Courses


This is not a traditional classroom experience.  Learning at Adjacent mirrors the workplace and is therefore not lecture-based—you will learn by doing alongside your peers, with the support of experienced technologists and educators, and with interaction and feedback from mentors and employees in diverse tech roles.

No computer science experience is required. Students with no background in tech are strongly encouraged to apply.
