Part-Time Coding Bootcamp

Official Program Name: 'Software Engineering Track: Part-Time Online' in California

Please Note: This program graduated its first students in 2023. As such, outcomes data is not yet available for this program.

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 Bootcamp, 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.

Here are a few terms you should know
