    FAQ

    Online or in-person — which bootcamp is for me?

    Online is for you if you want the skills to work remotely as more jobs offer remote options, to have freedom and flexibility in your work. Or maybe it just isn’t feasible to move cities right now! Our in-person bootcamp is ideal if you want the classic experience of being on campus, you know that you need a focussed learning environment outside of your home, or you know you aren’t a distance learner.

    We’ve had folks move from as far as Gore to experience the bootcamp in person, as well as folks doing it online to prepare for remote work in a post-COVID world. It really depends on your needs.

    Some things will be just like our on-campus bootcamp — or as close as possible! You’ll be ‘on campus’ online from 8:45am — 6pm.  Every day begins and ends with a Zoom check in and mindfulness practice. There will also be over 30 hours of teacher contact time per week. During contact time, live support will be only a click away with our teachers on Discord to help with questions and code issues. The experience is still going to be intense, hands-on, and heavily supported by our teachers.

    What hardware / software requirements does this course have?

    A modern computer (made within the last few years) in good condition, with a minimum of 8G ram (16G is better), a solid state drive, webcam, and microphone. Ideally your machine will be running macOS or Linux. Windows 10 is the only Windows OS we can work with. You will need headphones with a mic if you’re in a noisy place! If you’re not sure whether your machine will meet our standards, have a look at getting a refurbished machine here, or get in touch with us to have a chat.

    There is no special software required for the course. We use Visual Studio as our text editor and most people use Google Chrome as their browser.

    Where should I study?

    You’ll need a stable internet connection and a good learning environment. You can study from a co-working space, or from home, so long as you can be available for voice connection at all times. We also strongly recommend a dual-monitor setup with a comfortable working space (rather than in bed with a laptop). A great setup is one where you can sit or stand, and switch throughout the day.
