Why Parallax?

Parallax Code Academy is committed to teaching our students how to become mobile app developers. Our process is designed to give you the individual attention you need in small classes, surrounded by a cohort of equally-driven individuals. 


Unlike an online course that requires you to find your way through a one-size-fits-all system, the Parallax Code Academy IOS Bootcamp is a hands-on, in-person coding course, with a curriculum developed by tried-and-true coders who have created thriving mobile application businesses. You’ll be taught by working professionals.

No previous experience is necessary. This course will teach you everything you need to know. If you run into trouble, we’re right there to help, guiding you the whole way.


Not only will you learn skills and tactics, you get the know-how, the business guidance, and market savvy that will propel you forward. Your Parallax Code Academy cohorts will be entering the real world with you; you’ll share leads, tips, advice and experiences.

You will be guided by people who know the ins and outs of mobile application development. They know code, as well as the unwritten codes for success in the mobile app industry.
