In this episode Trent Lapinski and Austen Allred discuss learning programming and how Lambda School trains software engineers.

“We want to get the point where 90% of our students are hired within 90-days of graduation.”
“For us, it is very important that when you graduate from Lambda, we want to say, ‘this person has a stamp of approval they understand these 120 things, and we know that and we verified that and people stand by them.’”
“In the longterm that will matter a lot when it comes to employers and hiring. They will know what a Lambda graduate means.” — Austen Allred
