Frequently Asked Questions
Is this course conducted online or in person?

The course is completely online. All you need is an internet connection.

How long does this course take?

Becoming a developer takes time and effort. We've built a curriculum to teach you what you should know to land a job. The course length will vary for each student since the course is entirely self-paced. We expect most students will finish the course in 9 months working 20-25 hours per week.

How soon can I find a job?

The final module of the course focuses on career components. In this module, you'll work 1:1 with your career coach to create a successful job search strategy, build your network in tech, craft a coding resume and LinkedIn profile, practice mock technical and behavioral interviews, debrief after actual job interviews, and negotiate your salary. We expect you to land a developer job within six months of course graduation.

What are the prerequisites for admission?

The course requires basic familiarity with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. As part of the admissions process, we'll ask you to complete an online technical skills survey. If you don't pass the skills survey, we'll refer you to our Software Engineering Prep course instead.
