The next course starts in fall 2020.
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 small tasks within it. It is very important to us to get you up to speed on how web development on the job works so there will be a bigger website project that you will work on during the 12 weeks by yourself. You will learn how to find solutions by yourself and the help of 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 at home, take a break - sleep well overnight and try again. If that did not help and you googled already every possible combination, don't hesitate to write on the slack channel.
What if my learning pace is different? Some people will reach the end of our schedule, others will only do half of it and others continue all to the full stack end of the course.It is all about one's motivation and time available. So don't worry if you are not sure how much time you can commit now. You can keep the online course after you finished the Code Excursion and continue whenever it suits you.
Is programming difficult? Yes, we are not going to lie, it is tricky to get your head around it at first. That is why we meet weekly in a friendly environment. You can ask the mentors all your questions and in case you can't make it to the meeting you always have the slack channel readily available. Also having a clear objective what you want to learn and why you do it is helping a lot.
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. After that we choose who we think suits the course best and we get back to you lastest until End of August.
