Galvanize & Pivotal Labs Announce Apprenticeship Program for gSchool SF


gSchool is proud to announce Pivotal Labs at gSchool, an exclusive apprentice program for students attending our software development training programs.  This partnership gives students real world experience by working alongside Pivotal Labs engineers for the second phase of the program, further strengthening gSchool’s mission to provide world-class developer training.

Learning to write software is only part of the education experience at gSchool.  From hiring industry production engineers, to mapping out our day to day process, gSchool has designed our curriculum around gaining practical experience as soon as possible.   We know that a budding software engineer must also learn how to work on highly innovative and collaborative teams – and Pivotal Labs at gSchool is a means to great way to give students these skills and experience.

We’ve partnered with Pivotal Labs because they’re industry leaders in helping companies take their software development practices to the next level. They take a strong, agile approach to software, which includes pair programming and test-driven development (TDD), and ensures that development is fast and predictable, helping the customer achieve consistent results. Their methodology is a great compliment to the gSchool curriculum, and we’re excited to provide students with this additional layer of real world learning and practice.

Starting this Fall in San Francisco, students will engage with the Pivotal Labs at gSchool apprenticeship towards the second half of their 24 week program.  We plan to roll out the program to our Denver and Boulder locations by early 2015.
