Part-Time Class FAQ

I'm a beginner. Can I take these classes?

Yes! Our part-time courses are great for people who are new to coding. You'll do online prework to cover the basics. Classes start from the beginning, and while they move fast, you'll be able to work at your own pace.

If you have some experience coding, the part-time classes are perfect for you too. Your instructors are experienced developers who can tailor the experience to fit your needs.

What's the difference between Immersive and Part-Time?

The Immersive program is designed to help people switch careers and become software developers. In the Part-Time classes, you will learn web development skills far faster than you can on your own. The part-time classes also make an excellent starting point if you are unsure about making a career switch.

How much time will I spend working outside of class?

Classes only meet for 6 hours a week, and while we try to spend time in class getting our hands dirty in the code, there's a lot of lecture material to cover.

You should expect to spend a minimum of 4-6 hours a week working outside of class. The students who get the most from the part-time classes are the ones who spend the most time coding, so you get what you put in.
