What does the typical day/week look like for a Coding Temple Student?

At 9:00 each morning, Coding Temple’s classes begin by reviewing any previously assigned work. The instructor helps students to solve any challenges they may have encountered. Once they are satisfied that the class is generally on the same page regarding that material, our instructor begins a lecture on a new topic. Following about two hours of instruction, students are assigned a quick exercise to help them gain a better understanding of the newly introduced topic. Students work in groups or on their own, depending on the scope and nature of the exercise, grappling with new concepts. Around noon, classes break for lunch, at which time some aspiring coders may touch base with instructors about questions they have, continue to work on their project, or unwind with a little ping pong, darts, or Xbox One. Following the lunch break, the instructor will usually delve deeper into the concepts introduced that morning, demonstrating more sophisticated applications of the new ideas. At the end of a class day, students are given a more extensive assignment to complete, which will help make concrete what they’ve just learned and prepare them to build on those materials the following day. Some students choose to stick around Coding Temple to work on their assignment, while others head home to give themselves a little breathing room before diving into that night’s work. Generally, students will put in an extra hour or so of work most evenings after class but that’s largely dependent on the learning style and pace of the student. Fridays are reserved for office hours, at which time students can work from home, connect with fellow students off-campus, or meet with TA’s and instructors at our office.The schedule and rhythm of Coding Temple is meant to not only cover a great deal of material, but to prepare students for the rigorous tempo of working as a professional developer. While the pace of the bootcamp is fast and the volume of material covered can be intimidating, Coding Temple builds in a lot of moments for students to work one-on-one with TA’s and instructors to ensure they stay caught up. Coding Temple is dedicated to making sure each and every student who is willing and eager to learn coding is given every opportunity to succeed.

How can I best prepare myself to succeed in your program?

Once you have been accepted to Coding Temple, we provide pre-work that needs to be completed before the program starts. The pre-work will require a 20-30 hour-a-week commitment for 2-3 weeks prior to starting the program. If you happen to complete the pre-work ahead of schedule, we will share some additional resources for you to complete so that you’re best prepared to succeed and thrive in our intensive program.
