Part-Time RampUp

RampUp is a part-time, community-driven learning experience. Master front-endand back-end developers teach and mentor students over the course of this 4 month experience. This deep-dive into a specific skill set (either Python/Ruby or HTML/CSS) is flexible for people who have full-time jobs and are looking for building up a skill set for something in the future.
