Letter from Adda Birnir, Founder & CEO of Skillcrush

Just six years ago, I was where you are.

In early 2009, I had just begun a new job at a digital agency. Just 7 short weeks after starting, I was called in to a conference room and laid off.

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, 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!

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

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

And 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.

Since then I have:
  • Started two companies that have employed more than 15 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!

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 you're not 100% satisfied with your purchase, I will refund your money. No questions asked!

That's my promise to you!

Skillcrush classes and blueprints will teach you everything you need to get started. And getting started is the most important step.

Join us!

Check out the stories of Skillcrush students who are doing it:

Sarah Greer

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!”
Ann Cascarano

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.”
Jordan Young

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.”
Becca Slosberg

Landed a full-time job as front-end developer

“I finished Skillcrush class AND got my first job as a front-end developer. Woot woot! Skillcrush FTW! I am working at a web dev agency. We have some pretty big clients, and also work with a lot of graphic design agencies that don't have the capacity to code the sites they design in house. So far, I am loving it!!
Lyndi Weener-Kuiper

Got a 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!”

Yes, you really can do this!

You are absolutely smart enough!

Learning tech skills isn’t about smarts – it’s about dedication. If you commit to finishing your lessons and diving in headfirst, you WILL complete the course, graduate with a professional portfolio, and launch your career in tech.

All of our training is designed to be easy-to-follow – no tech jargon here! – we explain everything in a way that is easy to understand and immediately useful.

You are NOT too old. We promise :)

Are you breathing? Can you access a computer screen? Then nope! You’re not too old.

A lot of us grew up believing that code was for the young, but it’s just not true. Anyone can make a commitment to transform their life with code. Don’t believe me? Just ask Kelli…

And if you’re worried about the crowd, don’t be. We have a diverse group of students with ages ranging from 15 to 75, and we never use tech jargon without explaining exactly what we’re talking about.

Even if you work full-time, you have time to learn!

Skillcrush Digital Career Blueprints are designed specifically for busy professionals in mind (including busy moms!).

Yes! Our students spend everywhere from 30 minutes a day completing the lessons, to hours diving in deep on their personal projects. And the program is designed to fit into your busy life. You don’t have to take a year off of work to learn to code – you can spend 12 weeks studying during your lunch hour, getting in some HTML before bed, or even popping open your code editor as you drink your morning coffee.

We all lead busy lives. But if you want to learn to code, you absolutely can make time for it. Don’t get me wrong, to really succeed, you’re going to have to set aside time (and mental energy) each day to hone your new skills. Think of it this way, if you had to give up House of Cards for a few months in order to transform your life forever, would you?

Ok, maybe not House of Cards...but you follow ;)

Even if your finances are tight, we'll help you afford class!

We keep budgets lean on our team so that we can pass along our cost savings to you. We price our blueprints according to what we need to charge in order to be a profitable company, provide the level of service that we believe YOU ALL deserve, while also keeping the price point accessible to our audience.

Are you recently unemployed and looking to restart your career?

We want to do everything we can to help you get back in the saddle. Send us an email at hello@skillcrush.com for a special discount.

You can't HELP but like it.

I get it. A lot of learn-to-code programs are...well...boring. But Skillcrush is built on the premise that the more engaged you are, the more you’ll learn. We won’t overload you with lines and lines of code and theory. Instead, we show you what you can DO with code, then teach you how to build it.

When you’re doing engaging work with immediate, tangible results, it’s hard not to love it.

We'll make sure you follow through.

If you have struggled to finish other online training programs, or picked up potential hobbies only to ditch them after a few weeks, this is your solution.

We don’t just give you the skills you need, we show you exactly how to put them into use. From learning skills in the most efficient way possible and keeping you engaged in the learning process, to helping you finalize your personal projects and walking you through the job search, we are here to make sure you never get left behind.
