City Colleges of Chicago offers a free pilot coding class to qualified students at both Truman College in Uptown and Kennedy-King College in Englewood, providing both expert instruction and the equipment necessary for students to learn how to create apps for iPhone and iPad, and then publish them on the App Store®. The course uses the App Development with Swift curriculum designed by Apple.

The class meets 12 hours per week – two evenings of 3 hours each, and Saturday, 8:00 am to 2:30 pm. Each class session will be divided between lecture and lab hours.

Once you’ve successfully completed the course, you may go on to use the skills you’ve learned to:

  • Start a business

  • Continue developing coding skills in higher education programs

  • Be considered for entry-level positions with software development companies

How to Apply

Spaces are limited, so CCC will use an extensive screening process to select applicants to participate in this tuition-free pilot program.

Participants will be screened based on the following:

  • Previous technical training or experience

  • Familiarity with the iOS environment

  • Ability to commit to attending the five-month class

  • Desire to interview for entry level positions with a partner firm or other software development companies

Everyone Can Code is a program designed by Apple to help everyone learn how to code, creating opportunities for all students and preparing them for the workforce. The comprehensive program includes a range of free resources, from helping students explore basic coding concepts to building fully functional apps. Students work towards becoming proficient in Swift, Apple’s easy-to-learn programming language.
