Learn to code on a part-time schedule

Full-time programs don't work for everyone. That's why we designed our part-time bootcamp to give you the same outcome as our full-time programs, but on a more flexible schedule. We understand that you’ll be juggling a lot as a part-time student, so we provide a more accommodating attendance policy and only give assessments every other week. Plus, we're one of the only coding bootcamps to offer an ISA (Income Share Agreement) with our part-time program. That means we don't charge you tuition until after you've landed a job earning at least $50,000. It's a win-win.
Gain expertise using Python + JavaScript

Stand out with hundreds of hours of practical experience in today's two most in-demand coding languages.

Prep Work (Before Class)

Every morning, you and your classmates will watch short lectures and demos discussing both theoretical and practical use cases. You can speed-up or slow-down the lecture and write down any questions when you have them. Lectures are followed by live Q&A sessions to answer any questions before you put those concepts into action.

1 Hour
1 Hour

Instructor-Led Q&A (In Class)

Take a break, eat some food, and connect with classmates. This is a great time to develop relationships with others who will be one part of your huge alumni network through App Academy.

Projects + Pair Programming

After lunch, you will pair-up with a classmate and work on collaborative projects that drive home the concepts from the morning’s lecture. Working with others is something you’ll do almost all the time in software development, so learning to adapt to different people on different projects is very important. It also helps to talk through problems with one another, work as a team, and find solutions together.

Hour 3

Group Review

You spent the day working through different projects to master key concepts. Now, reflect on what you just accomplished by talking about it with your classmates in a group setting. Share what you did during the day. Find out how others did things differently. Gain a wider perspective on the material by synthesizing experiences with your classmates.

Pair Programming (In Class)

Now, it’s time to get ready for the next day. You will spend an hour or so going through preparatory material for the following day’s class. You’ll get exposed to the important ideas, sleep on it, and return the next morning to take one more step toward software programming mastery.

2 Hours
When you apply, you'll be able to choose between our East Coast (6-9 p.m. EST) and West Coast (7-10 p.m. PST) cohorts, for your Monday-Thursday class time. The only difference between the cohorts is the time of day you'll meet.
Class time on Saturdays will always be held from 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. PST, for both the East Coast and West Coast cohorts.
