-- PROJECT DESCRIPTION --
Our company is offering an iOS class at Stanford University in April 2015. We would like to create a website that convinces college students who love programming to apply to the class.
The website will be judged based on how well it focuses student’s attention on applying and presents important information about the class cleanly and concisely.
-- ABOUT CODEPATH --
CodePath is an education technology startup that provides free, accelerated engineering classes for professional developers and designers. Our classes are strict, emotionally addictive, backed by cognitive science, and highly effective.

SECTION 2 -- MORE ABOUT THE CLASS --
Andreessen Horowitz is sponsoring a CodePath Stanford class to offer a free, 8 week, intensive iOS evening programming class to Stanford students. The curriculum was initially developed for professional engineers at Facebook, Dropbox, Apple and other top technology companies. We're bringing our curriculum to Stanford students this Spring for free.
8 weeks long with two, two hour class sessions each week.
Homework usually takes 10+ hours to complete the minimum and 20+ hours to produce exceptional assignments.
Sample projects built during the class include Fixed (YC ‘14), and Spitfire Athlete (TechStars ‘14).
Students will earn cash, swag, and dinner with influential founders for performing well in the class.
Classes schedule: 6-8pm, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from April 7th to May 28th
Location: Old Union

SECTION 4 -- FAQ ---
Title - FAQ
Who can apply?
- Any current college students at Stanford University
What is the cost?
- Completely free.
What does the application process look like?
- After completing a short application, you will receive a basic coding challenge to build a basic Swift app. Students who work hard on the coding challenge will be invited to a phone interview. The first 30 students who pass the phone interview will be admitted to class.
What are the prizes?
- $2,000+ in cash prizes have been reserved for top students. Andreessen Horowitz will identify great founders to have lunch with a select number of students.

What is CodePath?
- CodePath is an education technology startup that provides free, accelerated engineering classes for professional developers and designers. Our classes are strict, emotionally addictive, backed by cognitive science, and highly effective.
Why is CodePath doing this?
- As software engineers, we have a strong need to "keep up" with the rapidly changing field of software development. Have you ever wanted to play with a new technology and wished that you had other engineers to play around with, mentors to save you countless hours and guide your learning as well as high-quality curriculum and projects to make learning more fun?
- Yeah, we did too. This is in large part why we founded CodePath. We are both engineers and founders and we wanted a better way for engineers to learn exciting new languages and platforms. We learned mobile on our own (by ourselves) using books and blog posts and we want to take the time to make it easier for everyone else.
What if I have additional questions?
