All classes are held at Blazing Cloud's office in downtown San Francisco, near Union Square (map).

Scholarships are available, and instructors are practicing software developers - who also enjoy teaching! Instructors include Liah Hansen, Lorien Henry-Wilkins, Alex Chaffee, and Wolfram Alpha.

Blazing Cloud reserves at least one spot in each class for scholarships, and encourages you to apply if you believe your involvement will increase the diversity of the relevant tech community in San Francisco, or if the fee presents a financial hardship. Here's the application for a Blazing Cloud scholarship.

Blazing Cloud applies an innovative teaching approach that is gaining widespread adoption, called Test-First Teaching, where students implement exercises that will cause pre-defined tests to pass. Many senior software engineers in the field find that testing is an effective way to learn a new language or API. This methodology also provides a good introduction to people who are new to testing.
