Just five years ago, I was where you are.

As I sat, listening to the CEO explain the situation, I looked around the room and noticed something: of the dozen employees being let go, only one of them was a developer. Everyone else was a strategist or a project manager (like myself). One thing was clear: in that tough economic climate, if you didn’t have hard technical skills, you were expendable.

So there I was, laid off, with no real skills to speak of, left staring at a $300 weekly unemployment check and the worst job climate in our nation’s history. I was devastated, but I was determined to find my way out. And that’s why I’m writing to you today!

Since then I have:
  • Started two companies that have employed more than 12 people.
  • Built websites for companies including MTV, ProPublica, and The New York Times.
  • Been named one of the 20 Women to Watch in Media by the Columbia Journalism Review and one of the 30 Most Important Women in Tech by Business Insider, and been featured on the BBC, Fast Company, and Mashable.
  • And even been invited to the White House!

So what did I do in order to go from laid off to where I am now?

I started with one teeny tiny small step: I learned digital skills.

It wasn’t easy. Or fast. I didn’t do it in two weeks, or even two years. (I’m still learning new things every day!) But that decision – to gain clear, marketable, digital skills – changed everything. Suddenly, I could execute. If I had an idea, I could make it happen. Every new skill I learned opened up ten new opportunities. And each new opportunity got bigger and better.

You too can transform your career. Guaranteed.

The Skillcrush Career Blueprints are the programs I wish I had. I have taken everything that I have learned, every tip, every trick, every shortcut, every best practice and packed it all into one supercharged three-month online training program. I am so confident that you will love this program that if, within 30 days of starting your Blueprint, you’re not 100% satisfied with your purchase, I will refund your money. No questions asked!

That’s my promise to you!

Now let me be 100% clear: Skillcrush classes and blueprints will not teach you everything you ever need to learn about technology. But they will give you every tool and resource you need to get started.

And getting started is the most important step.

Join us!


I’m not exaggerating when I say that Skillcrush changed my life… The skills I learned made me confident enough to chase my dream job after I was suddenly fired from a job I hated. Now I’m in non-profit marketing, and the more skills I can bring to the table, the better!

- Charlotte Baker

Career Blueprint: Web Designer

Average Salary: $61,000

If you love art, people and thinking about how someone lives with one of your creations, then Web Design is for you. The best web designers know that good design is nearly invisible but utterly delightful. Their job is to make the websites and mobile applications they work on such a pleasure to use that you find yourself returning to them over and over.

Career Blueprint: Web Developer

Average Salary: $76,000

If you like to make things: to build furniture, knit cozy sweaters, throw a ceramic mug, then you will love learning how to make your creative vision and build it into a real-live web application. Web developers are builders and problem solvers. Every single website, app, and piece of software you work on daily was created by a developer. Developers love to dream up a crazy idea or identify a BIG problem, and then come up with an elegant solution.

Career Blueprint: Mobile Web Designer

Average Salary: $92,000

Raise your hand if you've ever visited a website on your phone or tablet. Of course you have! The most in-demand web professionals understand that the majority of people in the world have a mobile device (it's true!), and that many people use a mobile device as their PRIMARY way of browsing the web. Every day, the demand for websites that are beautiful and intuitive to use GROWS. Learn the skills you need to get paid the big bucks to build the beautiful, responsive websites mobile users crave.

Career Blueprint: Freelance WordPress Developer

Average Salary: $85,000

Are you ready to learn one of the most marketable skills on the planet? Do you want to land a side project that pays more than your monthly salary? Are you sick of being dependent on expensive templates that aren’t QUITE right, or having to call your developer every single time you need to make even a tiny tweak? Then, my friend, it’s time for you to learn WordPress.

Career Blueprint: Ruby on Rails Developer

Average Salary: $108,000

Ask any industry pro what technology you should learn to build custom web applications and they will all say the same thing: Ruby on Rails. What makes Rails so special is that it is both incredibly complex and unbelievably simple, making it the perfect choice for beginners and experts alike. If you want to get hired full-time at a major tech company (or start your own tech company), this is the technology you must learn.

Check out the stories of Skillcrush students who are doing just that:

Raised her hourly rate by 400%

I decided to learn to code so that I could supplement my husband’s income while working from home AND homeschooling our four kids. Shortly after I finished the Web Developer Blueprint with Skillcrush, I landed my first client, bringing in over $1K! I got a return on my investment right away, getting my money back twofold on my very first project. My work is steady and my current hourly rates are 4x higher than in any of my previous jobs, and over twice as much as my husband makes!

- Sarah Greer

Freelance Web Developer

Her first project paid for her blueprint & then some!

My first project invoice paid for the course and then some, and my client base is steadily growing. Perhaps best of all is the flexibility that this line of work entails—I make my own schedule, so I get to stay home with my little ones AND take frequent dance breaks in my living room.

- Ann Cascarano

Freelance Web Developer

Landed her first freelance client, now charges as much as $100/hr!

I landed my first client through a friend of mine and I am making $65/hr on web development and $100/hr on work with AWS and deployment setup.

I also work in a journalism software lab at a university and have primarily had a more administrative role. The Blueprint has helped in my day job by making me more confident in working on and volunteering for more technical projects. It has also helped in being able to communicate with and understand what the developers are working on.

- Jordan Young

Operations & Project Manager

Got her first full-time web development job offer on her birthday!

I was a student in the Web Developer Blueprint & just wanted to share the good news that I got a job offer for a web development position this week. Actually, I got the offer on my birthday, so best gift ever!

I’ve been trying to teach myself code for the past 2 years, but Skillcrush gave me the confidence and encouragement I needed to start sending out my resume. I’m so glad the work has paid off! Thanks for everything!
