Code-Alongs and Evaluations offer you a direct route to mastering skills that count, earning certifications, and optionally applying for Virtual-Internships. It’s your opportunity to stand out.

Programs Opened

  • Summer Virtual-Internship Applications now open: Apply here. Jump into Virtual-Internships to solve real-world problems as part of a team. Your performance in Skill Builder Projects guides team formation and project assignments, offering a tailored internship experience that builds on your strengths. Solo option is also available but we strongly recommend the team option for a unique comprehensive experience.
