We cannot accept "solo" students in our program because our whole learning methodology is based on peer dynamics. We believe that in order to become a great software developer, you should not only learn how to write high-quality code but also, the soft skills, like how to:

  • Teach to and learn from fellow developers
  • Collaborate well with a diverse set of people
  • Listen to others and respond appropriately
  • Communicate your ideas in an effective manner
  • Connect with future colleagues and employees
  • Practice good manners
  • Mentor and get mentorship from others
  • Negotiate compromises in working styles and ideas
  • Give constructive criticism
  • Maintain professionalism every day

As a student in the full-time Software Development Program, you will learn each of these things by working with your coding partners. Our goal is to help you become great software developers AND well-rounded employees/coworkers/mentors as well.
