Who we are

We’re help­ing to build mean­ing­ful tech careers for all

Momen­tum was found­ed in 2017 to pro­vide cod­ing school train­ing focused on the needs of the mod­ern work­place. We are guid­ed by the belief that edu­ca­tion cre­ates oppor­tu­ni­ty and that knowl­edge has no bounds. We give career chang­ers the soft­ware devel­op­er skills and sup­port they need to start mean­ing­ful careers in tech­nol­o­gy and see our role as a cat­a­lyst for pos­i­tive life change.

We offer full-time immer­sive soft­ware devel­op­er cours­es to help career chang­ers learn to code in Durham and beyond, part-time class­es for those curi­ous about devel­op­ing soft­ware skills, and cus­tomized employ­ee train­ings for orga­ni­za­tions. Momen­tum cours­es pair best-in-class upskill train­ing with 1‑on‑1 career ser­vices to ensure that our grad­u­ates seam­less­ly start high demand tech jobs whether they’re seek­ing Durham tech jobs or jobs in tech in their hometown.

The Momen­tum com­mu­ni­ty makes this Durham cod­ing school spe­cial. Our grad­u­ates, hir­ing part­ners, and men­tors share our vision of inclu­siv­i­ty and are invest­ed in sup­port­ing our stu­dents’ careers in tech­nol­o­gy. We wel­come any­one who feels stuck in the wrong career and craves mean­ing­ful, high demand tech jobs to join us.

Momen­tum is based in Durham, NC and in response to the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, we now offer our Momen­tum cours­es in live, vir­tu­al expe­ri­ences. We are also proud part­ners of Momentum@Morehouse,​the first cod­ing boot­camp and con­tin­u­ing tech­nol­o­gy edu­ca­tion pro­gram for More­house Col­lege, locat­ed in Atlanta, Geor­gia, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Oppor­tu­ni­ty Hub.
