Holberton School

Holberton School was founded in San Francisco by Sylvain Kalache and Julien Barbier to solve a problem they observed all over the tech world. They had noticed aspiring software engineers would devote years to studying, sometimes accumulating over a hundred thousand dollars of student debt, and would still not have the skills necessary to find a job in software engineering. Sylvain and Julien decided to build a new school; one that taught students to think and learn like the best programmers, one that helped students develop soft skills to get them noticed in interviews and throughout their careers, and one with a curriculum developed to give students practical experience through a Full-Stack engineering program. Since Holberton School opened its doors in 2016, the world's most innovative companies have noticed. Graduates have found high-satisfaction jobs at LinkedIn, Google, Tesla, Docker, Apple, Dropbox, Facebook, Pinterest, Genentech, Cisco, IBM, and more. Holberton School has also opened campuses in New Haven, CT, Bogotá and Medellín, Colombia, and our unique, successful, and scalable approach has to tech education attracted the attention of top Silicon Valley investors.
