Schedule

Daily schedule

You’ll study part-time with your classmates and instructors in an online classroom. You’ll learn to program through a mix of live instruction, coding exercises, and team projects. We’re flexible in how we run our bootcamp, but here’s an example of what a typical day might look like in our Part-Time Cohorts.

5:00 PM
5:30 PM
6:00 PM
8:30 PM

Pre lecture review

The class begins with a chance to talk with your classmates and teachers; this is also a great time to ask questions and get last-minute advice on projects.

Whiteboard algorithms

Starting in week 2, the class will work through a coding algorithm question to prepare for technical interviews. One student will be chosen to share their screen as they code a solution, talk through their thought process, and get feedback from their instructors on how they solved the problem.

Lecture

In a live instruction class, your Senior Instructor will explain concepts and then lead you through how to apply them in real-life scenarios. Often these classes will be broken up into smaller groups so that you can work on projects together or help each other out with solutions.

“Coming into this boot camp and being unsure of how I would come out as a developer left me feeling uneasy. Well, all I can say is after going through this boot camp, I am left speechless. I don't think I could have gotten any more prepared for a career as a developer if I tried. The classes are small so you get great one on one feedback. All the staff were extremely encouraging and supportive through my entire journey. Thank you CT!!”

“I had an amazing experience with this bootcamp!! The staff is very interactive and always available when you need them. My instructor was wonderful, he was super knowledgeable and did a great job preparing me for a career in tech. I would recommend this bootcamp a thousand times over to anyone looking for a bootcamp. All reservations I had for participating in one disappeared within a week of starting my cohort. As a part time student with full time work responsibilities I was nervous about the work load and how much it would dominate life. It did not dominate whatsoever and the school is very willing to work with you and your schedule. It is not just the instructors, the staff in general is amazing, from student relations, to career counseling, to the post-grad job-search assistance, I really can't recommend this school and its staff enough!!”

“I was working on/dreaming of a career change to software for about 5 years. I was taking college courses part time while working a stress filled full time job as the sole provider in the house. After a family health crisis, I decided to start looking at coding bootcamps to help speed up the transition. I found Coding Temple on Course Report after spending a few weeks looking through different options. I chose them based on the fact they teach python, they offer a 12 week part time, and they have a solid reputation. Let me tell you, I am happy I chose them.”

"Coding temple is a fast paced bootcamp. The instructors are very knowledgeable. All of the classes are recorded and it’s nice to be able to go back and rewatch them multiple times. I would recommend the part time class because it is 2 weeks longer and those 2 extra weeks are very helpful when learning flask."

FAQs

How many hours a week do I need to commit to the Part-Time Bootcamp?

Our Part-Time Bootcamp is typically a less intensive option than a Full-Time Bootcamp, but it still requires a significant time commitment. The number of hours per week that a student is expected to commit to a Part-Time bootcamp can vary, but students can typically expect to spend 30-40 hours per week on coursework, projects, and assignments. This can include attending lectures and workshops, working on group projects, and completing individual programming exercises. Our Part-Time Bootcamps are held in the evenings, so it allows students to balance their daily schedule with their personal or professional life.

It’s important to note this is a rough estimation, and depending on the week, the number of hours of commitment might vary.

Who is a Part-Time Bootcamp best for?

Our Part-Time Bootcamps are generally best for individuals who are looking to gain new skills or change their career direction but may not be able to commit to a Full-Time program due to other commitments such as work or family obligations. This program is ideal for people who are:

  • Self-motivated and able to work well independently.
  • Able to balance their personal and professional lives during the bootcamp duration.
  • Willing to make a commitment of around 30-40 hours per week to the program.
    Comfortable with a part-time evening schedule.
  • Interested in live instruction that allows for daily interaction with the instructor and other students.

This program is a great option for those who have busy schedules or for those who wish to continue working while also gaining new skills and knowledge. It’s important to carefully consider your own learning style, time availability, and personal circumstances before deciding whether a part-time bootcamp is the right option for you.
