What is Ada?

Ada Developers Academy is a year-long intensive training program for women and gender diverse people transitioning into software development. We’re located in Seattle, Washington. We offer one of the most comprehensive developer training programs available: seven months of full-time classroom instruction plus five months of on-the-ground training ensures our graduates thrive in their careers as developers. Ada is tuition-free and is supported by the tech community, public funding, and individual donors. Ada was founded in 2013. Ada offers more than just technical skills to students; Ada offers community, support, and life and career skills, as well.
