  • The online coding boot camp offers learners the exact same outcome. Because the experience and learning model is fundamentally different, it requires different types of curricula. Additionally, the online coding boot camp teaches two primary languages — Ruby on Rails and JavaScript.
  • No, previous experience is not required. While having some background can help, our course will get you up to speed and ready to get started on day one.
  • Learners, on average, have committed approximately 25-30 hours to the boot camp each week. While every student is different, this time can vary. In the online coding boot camp format, the boot camp can be completed whenever it is convenient for the student as long as they have a computer and internet access.
  • Both boot camps teach the same thing first and foremost — how to think like and become a developer — but the online coding boot camp starts with a different language, Ruby on Rails. Ruby is a useful starting language for self-paced participants learning online coding for a few reasons:
    • It is more accessible and similar to English than many languages which make debugging easier
    • It has a robust online community for learners to get help on their own (just like real developers!) in places like Stack Overflow
  • Learners may be concerned about being isolated and not having the right support network in place when learning online. As part of the online coding boot camp, we’ve created a strong sense of community where you can engage and work with your peers, helping each other overcome problems, as it’s likely you’ll be working through the curriculum at roughly the same pace. Before your first day in the boot camp, you will be introduced to the other members of your cohort, and when you join the boot camp, you will be able to engage with other learners through Slack. In addition to other learners, you will have a network of staff members to keep you motivated and moving along. This includes TAs, mentors, and a Support Manager in addition to your Career Director and Profile Coach.
  • In our boot camp, we have TAs who are available via Slack from 10am-10pm in your time zone who are ready, willing and able to help get you “unstuck.” They are also available on the weekends during daytime hours.
  • You will also be paired with a mentor who will meet with you for 24 1-hour 1:1s. The mentor is there to push you to the next level and to teach you “how to think like a developer.”
  • Learners receive first access to the online platform on the first day of class. After creating an account, learners are prompted to complete the Day One Survey for mentor matching. We perform the match on our end during the first week, and learners are notified of their “match” once all student responses are received. All learners are matched by the end of the first week.
  • A reliable computer is required for this course. Either Mac or PC, with a minimum 8GB of RAM and a dual-core processor. If you’re unsure if your device meets the requirements, please check with our admissions advisor first and they will make sure you’re good to go.
  • No, all that is needed for class is your laptop with the above-mentioned specifications.
