Modern, technical education for the heartland.

Main Street Codes is a coding school and coworking space located in Galesburg, Illinois. We offer modern, technical education in front-end web, back-end web, and mobile app development. In addition, we host STEM-related youth and community events and help foster innovation in local partner institutions. In the near future we will offer workshops on emerging technologies including ai, machine learning, robotics, vr, and rapid prototyping. We're hoping to create a national model of how to close the digital divide in non-urban communities.


Whether you're looking for a new career or just new skills, we offer in-person courses for coding skills that are actually in-demand. We help students, teachers, journalists, administrators, entrepreneurs, and everyone inbetween do their job more efficiently. Do you have a business or app idea that you'd love to build? Check out our courses page and let us know you're interested. If you'd like to learn more about coding bootcamps in general, we recommend you check out Course Report's 2017 Report.


Do you work remotely or have a small team? Become a member of our coworking space and enjoy access to a stylish, collaborative, and energetic community. You'll have unlimited access to the space anytime outside of class and events, with internet, power, and coffee free-of-charge. Learn more about coworking page and then get in touch.
