For some­one with no cod­ing expe­ri­ence, tak­ing those first steps to learn about a cod­ing boot­camp pro­gram can be daunting. 

We get it — invest­ing in your long-term career is one of the best, but often hard­est deci­sions you can make. To help, we are kick­ing off our AUA blog (ask us any­thing) series with Jes­si­ca, our CEO, and Katie, our head of Career Devel­op­ment. In this series, we will pull ques­tions from our inbox and answer as best we can.

Ask us your question! 

Let us help give you answers. 

You Asked, We Answered

Is this pro­gram good for some­one with no cod­ing expe­ri­ence? I’m a total beginner!

Absolute­ly! Momen­tum is designed for begin­ners or those who have lit­tle to no pri­or expe­ri­ence in cod­ing. We help train peo­ple who want to start or shift into a career in soft­ware development. 

We also have resources to share for those who’d like to try some cod­ing activ­i­ties out on their own before doing a cod­ing course. Inter­est in try­ing your hand at some cod­ing before mak­ing your deci­sion? Con­tact Micah »

What is the major dif­fer­ence between Immer­sive and Part-Time oth­er than time com­mit­ment per week?

Our immer­sive pro­gram offers a more struc­tured day. There are spe­cif­ic times for class­es and spe­cif­ic times for labs. It moves real­ly quick­ly because you are being full-stacked trained in 16-weeks. It also has more group work than our part-time course.

Our part-time course is more inde­pen­dent learn­ing focused. Your time will be less struc­tured as you work on a more flu­id sched­ule that fits the needs of your cur­rent (and like­ly busy!) life. 

Inter­est­ed in div­ing deep­er into the dif­fer­ences between our cours­es? Here we get a lit­tle more detailed in the dif­fer­ences between the pro­grams. Both offer ben­e­fits to our stu­dents, it just depends what else is going on in your world.

Do I have access to career ser­vices as a Part-Time stu­dent? What does that look like?

Yes — you have access to all the same resources for career ser­vices that our Immer­sive stu­dents have (i.e., Fri­day hud­dles, career ser­vice mod­ules, alum­ni net­work on slack, career guid­ance after grad­u­at­ing). As some­one with no cod­ing expe­ri­ence, we rec­og­nize the impor­tance of giv­ing you end-to-end sup­port, from the first time you’re sub­mit­ting an appli­ca­tion with us until you’re well in to your career. Momen­tum will be there every step of the way.
