Mission & History

aiu online

I’m Max McChesney, co-founder of DigitalCrafts. The DigitalCrafts story began in 2014 with me as a prospective bootcamp student.

Several years into my career, I was working an office job that paid the bills but didn’t satisfy my curiosity or desire to build something new—a feeling many of our students have echoed in the years since.

DigitalCrafts launched in 2015. In that time, we’ve helped over a thousand students work to develop industry-relevant skill sets through reskilling and upskilling courses to pursue a career path in technology—in weeks, not years. With classes taught live by instructors with years of real-world experience in their field, our curriculum is crafted with beginners in mind, combining live instruction with hands-on projects designed to effectively cater to all learning styles.
