General Assembly recently opened a new 12,000 sq ft. campus across from its original New York location on Broadway.The new space began hosting classes only days after it opened in June. It has beautiful signage, classrooms rigged with cameras to stream classes, and a long worktable made of high school bleachers.
GA is now two years old, has 70 employees and 14,000 students. Its philosophy is that people “learn by doing,” and that courses should emphasise the journey over the destination.
To that end, all of GA’s students take 10-16 week courses taught by real practitioners. We toured the place where they learn how to make or market great new tech.
