Time to level up.

Want a career in technology but struggling to get your foot in the door? The Manifest Agility Boot Camp is designed to jumpstart your career, moving you from novice to professional in only 6 weeks.

How It Works

Apply your talent, get real-world experience, and join a passionate community of technology professionals.

Employers frequently overlook young talent in favor of experienced professionals. So, how do you get in the door if you’re fresh out of college or new to the tech industry? You need to level up.

The Manifest Agility Boot Camp is a 6-week immersive training experience taught by industry-recognized practitioners. We pay you, coach you, and challenge you—placing you in real-world simulated projects where you learn how to collaborate within a team environment to solve complex problems.

Think of it as an internship—except you get paid, gain real experience, and graduate into career opportunity.

What You’ll Learn

Don’t wait for experience—seize it.

Taught by practitioners, like 2014 CIO/CTO of the Year Christopher Judd, you’ll learn:

In-Demand Technology

Learn to craft software in an Agile environment within the Java and .NET ecosystems. From Responsive Design techniques to Test-Driven Development, we teach modern skills that are relevant and in-demand.

Real-World Experience

Move beyond textbooks and classroom projects into collaborative work—as you learn how to troubleshoot, identify solutions, write quality code, and deploy technology in simulated real-world environments.

Agile Practitioning

Learn how to communicate effectively, collaborate with a team, and deliver quality projects on-time to meet the mission-critical needs of the business.

Learn from practitioners—not from instructors.

You’ll be mentored by people who work within the industry, who’ve been there and done that, and know what it takes to build a successful career in IT.
