Student Training Begins!

Over 200 students surprised us in Spring of 2014 by applying to the inaugural HTML & CSS web development class. We accepted 40 students and graduated 35 newly minded HTML/CSS junior front-end developers. Students began to apply to join the agency, slated to launch in 2015.

Agency Launch

January 2015 marks the launch of the agency, and our plan is to roll out our first product: The complete ADDA WEBSITE (priced at $480). The agency is currently staffed by 37 coders and supported by an advisory board of industry experts, student entrepreneurs, as well as instructors who are seasoned coders currently working in tech.

Virtual Workshops

As the world went remote, so did we. We offered workshops in UX Design and an HTML/CSS series.
