Event Details

Learn to code and launch your product using the latest technology in one intense Drink-from-the-Firehose Weekend. The event is perfect for non-technical people itching to build their own Minimum Viable Product (MVP), learn to code and finally attract a technical co-founder to their startup idea.

In short: Show up for one weekend, learn to code and ship an awesome product using the latest technology.  

The entire weekend is 100% devoted to writing code and building an awesome web application using the same tools as the best startups in the country (Ruby on Rails, HTML5, CSS3, Github, Heroku, Twitter Bootstrap) and condenses over 4 weeks of self-guided learning material into a single weekend.

Why students love FirehoseWeekend:

The class is taught by Ken and Marco, two web developers and UX experts, who have ran this same FirehoseWeekend in Boston, New York City, Pittsburgh, Harvard Business School and the University of Hawaii. Both mentor young entrepreneurs in their free time and have years of experience building products people want for some of the most successful startups in Boston (
