  • What Is The Disruption Institute?

    The Disruption Institute is an intensive Kansas City Code School focused on getting you to learn to code by building ideas. You'll review our guided curriculum in off hours (tutorials and other relevant resources). When you come to class, we'll give assignments and challenges for you to work through in pairs. In addition to the instructor, you'll have access to expert mentors who can answer questions & help you succeed

  • How Much Does It Cost?

    For our intensive 10 week programs, the price is currently $6000. We do have financing options available through 3rd party providers for those who qualify. If you're looking for a job after the program, we can also help facilitate connections to hiring companies. Check out this success story!

  • What Will I Learn?

    For each course, you'll learn the fundamentals of the language, dev methodologies (Agile/TDD), Git & source control & more. Classes are 30% lecture and 70% hands on (exercises, in-depth tutorials and real world projects). Designated instructors and mentors will be present during class hours...but you'll also have the ability to get answers to your problems during off hours as well.

  • Is This Program For Me?

    The Disruption Institute isn't for everyone, it's only for the most motivated individuals. Do you take initiative? Do you like the challenge of solving difficult problems?

    You could have zero programming experience, be an industry veteran or somewhere in between. We're looking for people who are hungry to learn & never give up.

    If you want a structured environment, the atmosphere and energy of a hackathon, access to expert mentors….this is the place for you!

    Do you have motivation like this former grad?

  • Can't I just learn online?

    There are a lot of great learning resources out there, but we're offering something much different. This is about more than just learning a particular development language. We've created an environment where you'll build things together with others who also want to learn, just like you. In addition, you'll have access to expert mentors who want to help you succeed.

    The relationships and knowledge you gather here will be valuable forever.

    Here's an example of a great success story from one of our grads!
