  •  Iron Yard Durham graduates its Code School Class. The question is: Who’s hiring?

Iron Yard, Smashing Boxes team up for code school"So the question I wanted answered about the Iron Yard coding school, which held its first graduation and demo day on Friday at the Full Frame Theater in the American Tobacco campus in Durham, was this:

"Would any local company actually hire one of the graduates? Would the graduates be more suitable for startups or larger companies or both? And could they make an impact right away or would they be more like project hires, with a bunch of upside at a lower price?"

"Two of the 20 new alumni of The Iron Yard’s Code School had already secured and accepted job offers from Durham companies prior to Friday’s Demo Day," Parker reports.

Who are they? And what companies made the hires?
