Why does Lambda School create so much hype?

It’s a school that doesn’t care how much money you have, where you went to school, where you happen to live, or even if you own a computer.

And it’s outperforming schools that cost $20k upfront, even in its earliest iterations.
We still have a ton of improvements to make, but when I proposed this idea to other schools every single one said we would fail instantly and be crushed. Every. One.

And it’s working.

And now we have a staff 300+ strong killing themselves to build the best. school. ever.
If you don’t think that’s a big deal, and you don’t talk to the students to understand why this is something different than anything we’ve ever seen, then you may never get it. Especially if you’re incentivized not to.

That’s ok. Not everyone has to.
In the future more and more people will be incentivized to say Lambda School is bad, not only VCs that didn’t get in (of which there are A LOT).

Luckily it will always be drowned out by a chorus of thousands of happy students, and that’s all that matters.
