What we do
DigitalCrafts is an
Accelerated Learning Program
(more commonly referred to as a "code school" or "coding bootcamp") headquartered in Atlanta, GA.
Our flagship course is a 16 Week Immersive Web Development Bootcamp that transforms beginners into developers with cutting edge skill sets, polished portfolios, interview training, and on-going career support. We also offer part-time courses.

We exist to create a community of builders, each equipped with the skills and tools necessary to breathe life into ideas, whether as entrepreneurs or as professional developers.
What is a "stack"?
A "stack" refers to the layers of technologies between the server hardware and the end-user's browser required for a complete web application. Within this somewhat simplistic definition, you can further divide the stack into two parts: the front-end and the back-end. A front-end developer specializes in the interactive, user-facing portion of a web app: the look and feel, color scheme, animations, buttons, and all the rest that makes up the user interface ("UI"). A back-end developer works with servers, queries databases, writes APIs, and engineers algorithms to hand the appropriate information back to their front-end counterparts.
Early exposure to computational thinking provides students a leg up in the classroom, as they progress through college, and into the job market.
Programming is becoming a more ubiquitous skill set across every line of business.
Job prospects! The IT unemployment rate is 1-2% and there are over 545,000 vacant jobs today.
Recent Lovett grads just had their company, Yik Yak, valued at over $400 million dollars.
