Why Kura Labs
We use group-based applied learning as a force multiplier which builds an invaluable professional ecosystem where our alumni become the engineers, hiring managers, instructors/mentors, CTOs, entrepreneurs, and CEOs of a more equitable future.
We teach how to utilize financial and operational metrics to inform use of serverless components within the computational infrastructure by assessing trade offs between elastic capacity and ceding of direct operational control.
Receive unique hands-on experience building and managing CI/CD pipelines, microservices and serverless architectures and infrastructure as code.
“When I was interviewing for Kura, it felt like the interviewers accepted me, even though I had no background in computer science. And when I joined the program, I really had a fresh start where I could fail in a safe space and ask as many questions as I needed to. It felt like a crash course, which is how I was able to learn so much in such a short amount of time.”
“One of the things that was important for me to gain from Kura was filling the gap in my knowledge about technology. The program gave me the experience of how to project manage from start to finish. We were in control of the entire product, for instance, what should we go to next, how do we meet the needs of the clients now and in the future. I’m really glad I joined the program. I met a lot of great people and instructors. I now have a quality network of people who have contributed to my life, and I have had the chance to contribute to theirs too.”
“I have referred a lot of my friends to this program. This program changed the dynamic that I looked at computer—I need to learn the basics before I can get to where I want to be. They pushed and challenged me, so that I am now comfortable to speak about these technicalities. It also gave me an entire support system who I can always call to ask: “how do I do this or that?”
