Code Chrysalis Coding Workshops
By Yan Fan Follow | Public

We are a coding school hosting free or low-cost tech and entrepreneur-related meetups open to participants of all levels of coding ability and English.

Code Chrysalis is a 12-week advanced software engineer school in Tokyo teaching full-stack web application development in English and JavaScript.

We believe that being a capable modern software engineer is more than just knowing how to use Rails. Our curriculum focuses on building strong foundational programming knowledge and coupling that with modern technologies and best practices.


• Create Rockstars: Strong technical skills are only to start. We think that things like understanding agile work flows, test driven development, communication skills, growth mindsets, and autonomy are too often overlooked, but just as important.

• Empower Women: We want to increase the number of women going into technology and strive for equal gender representation in our classes and on our team.

• Build Community: We hold free educational workshops and networking events to provide support and build community for developers and engineers in Japan

• Change Werk: Long hours, poor management, low pay, lack of empowerment, waterfall workflows. These are all things we are working towards fixing in the industry.


You use React, but do you know how it works well enough to re-implement it? Our curriculum is completely project-based using test driven development and extreme programming methods. We focus on teaching and mastering advanced fundamentals and learning true autonomy. Our curriculum covers the full stack, including databases, back-end, front-end and deployment.
