How does the application process work?
There are two phases in the admissions process. First, you'll submit your initial application online here. Once the application deadline has passed, our team will evaluate all applications and notify you of your application status. Applicants who pass the inital application may be asked to do a phone interview, an in-person interview, or submit more supporting materials before an enrollment offer is extended. Applicants who don't pass the initial application will be given feedback on what they might be able to do to bolster their application for a future program.
Do I need to have prior programming experience?
Nope, although some experience with either programming or design may be benefical on your application. Our full stack web development program is a 0-60 type program. You do need to be a proficient general computer and web user. The school might also be a great fit for computer science graduates who need to bolster their programming skills.
What do you look for in potential students?
At the core, our ideal student is driven, hard-working, excited to learn, and not afraid of problem solving. After all, you'll be spending the majority of your waking hours for twelve weeks doing nothing but web development. A solid grasp of logic and mathematics may be helpful, but the program is not math-heavy -- unless you want it to be! Similarly, a background or interest in design would be a good complementary skill set, but isn't necessary.
Do I need to do anything to prepare?
Yes, there will be some required program pre-work. You will have access to these materials at least two weeks before the program starts. Your mileage may vary, but we expect these lessons and assignments to take around twenty hours to complete.
What exactly does full-time mean? Can I hold a job during the program?
Our program is forty hours per week in the classroom, and we estimate you'll spend at least another 20+ working on your own. We aren't really in the business of telling people what they can and can't do, but trying to work while you are attending is not generally recommended.
Will I need to buy or bring my own laptop?
As part of the program you will receive a laptop appropriate for web development. Upon successful completion of the program, you get to take this computer (along with all the code you have written) with you.
What does a typical day/week look like?
You will be in the classroom from 8AM to 5PM every weekday (except holidays), with a one hour break at lunch. On top of that, you'll have nightly homework and programming assignments, plus larger projects throughout the course. Plan on spending a couple more hours per night and several hours on the weekends working on course materials.
You can check out the actual course schedule if you are interested in seeing exactly what you will learn and when.
Does the school help me find a job?
While finding a job is ultimately your responsibility, we actively mentor you through the job search process. A major goal of the program is to help you build the kind of portfolio that will get you noticed. One of the program's later courses is entirely dedicated to helping you understand the job market and what career paths you can take. We'll help you build a resume (in a relevant format), prep you for common technical interview questions, and give you ideas of where to look. What's more, we are actively building a network of local, regional, and national employers to give you better access to good development jobs.
