Today: Flatron School Science Fair

Flatiron School / 14 August 2014

Meet great people—and great developers

Good news! We’re about to graduate our biggest class of Ruby and iOS developers yet. In just 12 weeks, they’ve not only become promising developers, they’ve also built some mind-blowing apps.


Today, we’re celebrating all their hard work at our Flatiron School Science Fair. If you’ve never been to one before, it’s kind of like a career fair in reverse. Hiring managers and anyone else interested in the amazing things possible in just 12 weeks can swing by to meet our students.  

This semester, more than 300 folks are joining us from companies like Makerbot, ESPN, HBO, and Hearst Digital Media. RSVP to mingle with hiring managers from all over and meet some great people who’ve just become great developers.

Date: Today!

Time: 4:00-7:00PM (Drop by any time)

Place: 11 Broadway, Suite 260

Win two seats in Flatiron After School*

Today, we’re using an app built by students Simon Seroussi and Randall Reed Jr to raffle off a really great prize. The app automatically pulls in hashtags to pick a winner at random. Cool, right?

We’ll be drawing twice, each time for two spots in Flatiron After School—a coding conservatory for high schoolers. Don’t know a high schooler? No problem, the winners are welcome to donate their spots to students from the amazing ScriptEd.

To enter, just tweet about a student project you loved to #ScienceFair, anytime between now and 5PM on Friday. The app will do the rest!
