What you'll learn in this programming class:

*Application required* - Before signing up for this course, please apply on our website:

This course is designed and optimized for complete beginners to coding. We don't require you to have any prior experience, but at the end of the 4 weeks you will be code literate. You will learn to use conditional logic, arrays, loops, objects, functions, and closures. In later classes, you'll apply your knowledge by adding features to a live full-stack web application.

We truly believe we've created the most effective curriculum for teaching beginner-level coding that exists. Most coding schools don't focus on this level, but for us it's our entire focus. You'll be immersed in a hands-on approach to learning, and you'll be writing code with us from day one. Rather than lecturing you, we'll show you brief demos and then give you opportunities to apply new concepts through challenges.

We primarily use JavaScript, but the focus is on algorithmic thinking and core concepts that are applicable across JavaScript, Python, Ruby, C#, Java, Swift, and the majority of today's popular programming languages. If you're considering a career change, this course makes for an excellent prep for applying to bootcamps, but many people in non-coding roles (managers, product managers, project managers, QA analysts) also find code literacy to be incredibly valuable for improving communication with their technical co-workers.

We maintain a 5:1 ratio of teachers to students at all times, and all of our instructors have worked as professional software engineers. Surprisingly, you don't see this at a lot of coding schools. We'll also bring in alumni guests from immersive bootcamps to chat about what it was like to pivot into software engineering. If that's a path you're considering, you'll have ample opportunities to ask all your questions and hear first-hand from people who have made the journey.

Bring a laptop computer.

Refund Policy
If you tell us you're unhappy with the program at the end of the 3rd class, we'll offer you the option to fully refund your tuition. We ask for you to wait until the 3rd class because we want you to give coding a fair chance. It can be challenging and even frustrating in the beginning, but the solution is almost always just more practice.
