Full-time (Bootcamp) or Part-time (Flex)?
Both the Bootcamp and Flex options follow the exact same curriculum designed and taught by industry experts.
Take Bootcamp if you…
Can concentrate on your studies full-time, dedicating 50+ hours per week to attend lectures and complete projects.
Are looking to enter the job market as fast as possible.
Can put your life on hold for the duration of the program — that means no major outside commitments that would require time off.
Take Flex if you…
Are looking to balance your studies along with work, health and wellness, or caregiver duties.
Need the flexibility to attend evening and weekend lectures.
Prefer part-time learning. Note that part-time doesn’t mean easy, it just means you’ll complete the program over a longer timeline!

What is the difference between a Bootcamp and a Flex Program?
Both bootcamps and flex programs cover the same material. Students of both will become familiar with their chosen program's fundamental concepts and techniques. The key difference between these delivery formats is the structure. A Flex program has lectures two days a week over a more extended period of time, whereas a Bootcamp is a more intense, full-time experience. These two programs accommodate a wider variety of student lifestyles, priorities, and preferred learning paces so that students can strike a balance that works for them without compromising on quality.
What type of job can I expect to get after graduating from the Web Development Program?
The Web Development Program will prepare you to work in a role as a professional developer. Some roles you might occupy include web developer, front-end developer, back-end developer, and full-stack developer.
