2 How long is each program? What’s the weekly workload?

The best part about learning to code? There are a ton of options to fit your life. Time and intensity play a factor. Choose a program length and level that matches your goals and fits your lifestyle. Some programs require you to attend in person, while others allow you to learn remotely on your own schedule.

3 How much will I learn when the program’s done?

We’ve taken each program’s recommended weekly workload (15hrs/week, for example) and calculated how much time it would take to reach a minimum of 500 hours of experience — a decent chunk of the 10,000 hours required to master a skill.
