    Q&A

    Do I have to have any pre-requisites? No – you can be an absolute beginner!

    What should I expect from the meetings?  It will be around 10 - 20 women meeting weekly at Stripped Pizza, having coffee and each working on their own skills via online course. The online course is video-based with projects that you complete by yourself and the help of the mentors. It is very important to us to get you up to speed on how web development on the job works so you will find solutions by yourself as well as with your peers and the mentors.

     I already know that I am going to miss a few meetings. Can I still join? Definitely! The course is built in a way that you can learn when and where you want and still get access to mentors!

    I'm stuck - what should I do? If you are stuck during the Code Excursion ask one of the available mentors on site. If you are working from home, turn to our community on Slack for help if you need help while not being on-site There’s also a FAQ added to each project with the most asked questions

    Why do I have to write a motivation to join? We want to get to know you a little bit and make sure that we have the same learning philosophy.

    Do I have to finish the course in a certain amount of time? Once you buy the course, you can access the course material for one year after the course started. However, if you want to follow the Code Excursion meet-ups we highly recommend you to follow the course and your classmates.

    How should I plan my time during the course? All material except for the meet-ups is online and in a selfstudy format. You can plan your study time however you like, but we recommend that you keep to the triweekly schedule to get most out of the meetups.

    What will I be able to do after the course? You will be able to build basic responsive websites using primarily HTML and CSS. You will master the most commonly used tools by developers and you will know some JavaScript to keep experimenting with after the course.

    What if we are not allowed to meet in a bigger group by September 2020? If that should be the case, the courses will be held remotely.
