Can I succeed if I'm a complete beginner?

Our classes are designed with the beginner in mind, but more experienced or advanced students will benefit as well.

You don't need to have a computer science degree or a previous job in tech before applying for our programs, but if you're a true beginner, we have some tips to help you do your best in class.

Study Before Your Bootcamp

We strongly suggest that you do some self-study before starting your class.  By getting in some practice using Codecademy, freeCodeCamp or any of the many free services available, you'll set yourself up for success.

Completing exercises on these sites will increase your familiarity with your laptop and some new commands, in addition to helping you learn to type more quickly. Both of these will serve you well!

Completing the Prep Work Helps You Succeed

So that every student hits the ground running on the first day of class, you’ll be asked to complete prerequisite assignments once you’re accepted into our program.

The pre-work is key for helping you get familiar with basic concepts and will give you a solid foundation from the very beginning. This is the #1 piece of advice our instructors recommend!

Support During Your Bootcamp

During your bootcamp, our instructors are ready to answer your questions. If you need help outside of class, our teaching assistants will hold office hours throughout your program, giving you additional support.
