California-based Lambda School is a 9-month immersive training program that gives you the tools and training you need to launch a new career. The program trains people online to be software engineers. The expert curriculum is designed and taught by instructors from Google, Apple, Blizzard, and many more of some of the best technology companies on the planet. In many cases, Lambda instructors literally wrote the textbooks others teach from. And if you get stuck at any point, there’s instant, one-on-one help whenever you need it.

Lambda’s quality of instruction is matched only by its strong focus on the employability of graduates. 86% of Lambda graduates are hired within 180 days of completing the program, and it’s no exaggeration to say that Lambda has quite literally transformed the lives of hundreds of people.
