Adult Workforce Immersion Program
The Operation Spark workforce program is less than a year of escalated intensity learning geared toward getting each student a full time job in software engineering. Through each step of the program our students will learn more about software, how it is created and how it works.
Our students come from a diverse set of backgrounds in terms of age, gender, race, and education. Most were born in southeast Louisiana, over half have college degrees, and the majority have some form of professional experience in the workplace. All of our students are highly driven, passionate software engineers who enjoy creative problem solving and the endless pursuit of writing clean, concise code.Culture of Code

Prep is not intended to prepare students for jobs in the software industry, but rather to ensure students have a fundamental understanding of computing principles before continuing into the tuition-based phases of the program. Operation Spark does not promise employability upon completion of Prep.

The junior phase, taking place during the first six weeks, allows students to explore many new avenues of coding in short amounts of time. Every two days students will be given a new concept to conquer, leading them to develop the skills to jump into any project with any tech stack they may find themselves presented with. Students' days will be filled with daily toy problems, both live and video lectures, student presentations, practice speaking about the concepts they are learning, as well as plenty of time to hack away on their projects. The junior phase culminates in an all day summary assessment to ensure they have fully understood the previous six weeks of learning, followed by a week long “solo week,” where students are given a week long project they must complete as a group, however they are not required to work in-house.
