Class meets once per week for 70 minutes. This is done in person at one of our locations or online through Zoom.
Each class consists of 3 sections. The first 10 minutes is check in and goal setting. The next 45 is coding time where the students build projects and ask questions. The last few minutes is showcase time where the students have their projects showcased to the class.
Our teachers are professional coders and instructors. Their job is to provide guidance and motivation to each student as they work. That includes helping students brain storm project ideas, make their existing work better, or solving a difficult bug. Coding is not like math, you can't just skip the problem and move on. If the code doesn't work you are stuck. Our teachers offer immediate assistance and experience that is lacking in many other settings.
Students are taught through instructional videos and teacher instruction. They learn by building, there are not any "lectures" or "theory". The students learn a technique and apply it instantly. Each course is self paced and the students can work on any curriculum or language that they like at any time. The program is year round, meaning you can start at any time!
