Py – Teach coders new skills on mobile

Py is an app for teaching coders new skills. From Python to iOS development, they help software engineers learn and also match them with jobs. With a ranking system that can identify strengths in categories like data science and app development, Py believes that it will help job seekers demonstrate what they’re good at. With 100,000 monthly active users, Py hopes to make a dent in what it estimates is a $3 billion market opportunity.

Why we picked it: Online education hasn’t caught up with our mobile consumption habits. Programming is an ideal and growing market to focus on and the gameification of Py seems to be paying off, earning the startup healthy retention.
